Hello there,

A new beta version of our Android application is available : v6.2.14!

Features:

-

▷ [ads] Created the new 'sponsored playlist' ad format (identified with a customized playlist masthead only for now) in order to offer better advertising and a new way of monetizing our free service

-

▷ [family] Added a parental control option to the admin of a Family account: admins can choose (from the 'Family members' screen) to hide explicit contents for their subprofiles and independent accounts linked to their Family plan. If they do so, the subprofiles and independent accounts won't see explicit contents in their app and they won't be able to change their explicit level from the app settings (options will be greyed out).

Improvements:

▷ [auto] Added live radios to Android Auto

▷ [conversion] Added a 'Better' preset in the audio settings, which opens the AppCusto restriction box that promotes the Deezer Premium offer

-

-

▷ [LOGIN/SIGNUP] Added an error message when users try to add an emoji to their username 

▷ [LOGIN/SIGNUP] Redesigned the unlogged welcome screen to fit with the new brand guidelines 

▷ [player] Changed the audio settings and Queue list icons at the bottom of the player icons and removed the associated wordings 

-

 

 

Bug fixes:

▷ [cast] Improved reliability, and prevented the receiver from displaying an error (and the sender from loading infinitely) when trying to play an album from the 'Recently played' section of the Favorites 

▷ [playlist] [accessibility] Fixed the content description of playlist names so the correct information is read when activating a voice assistant 

▷ [playlist] Made sure all tracks are loaded at once when filtering a large playlist 

▷ Made sure the Deezer certificate is validated on Android 4.4 devices so that webviews are properly loaded and displayed 

 

Enjoy !

Indeed, I will post it by the end of the day ! 

Hi Carole, version 6.2.15 constantly crashes on my device. I’ve cleared the cache and removed all downloaded music but it’s still happening. You’ll go to load a page and it will give you the album/playlist title but not the tracklisting.

It would be interesting to know if anyone else experiences this?

Thanks, Jake

Hi @djwacky 

Unfortunately I didn’t find any issue when searching with your ID. 

Do you still have the issue with the version 6.2.16?

If yes, can you tell what phone and Android version you have?

Hi Jean-Baptite,
This was resolved before the 6.2.16 update.
