Android release note 6.0.1

Userlevel 3

The version 6.0.1 of our android app is now available to beta users on the play store!

Note: this release notes also contains the 6.0.0 version updates.

We decided to bump the major version to 6 because this new version contains major improvements on right to left language management. To do this, we had to drop the oldest Android versions we supported, which are 4.2 and 4.3. Meaning the minimum supported Android version is now Kitkat (4.4). Don't worry if you use an older device, we will still continue to maintain the 5.X version!

Eben though it is not in the change log: voice commands in Android Auto are finally working for me with this release. Great!
Could you please add a list of supported commands?

Playlists downloaded to device aren't showing their green dot unless i go back into the playlist and out.
But doesn't retain this on app restart.

Oh, that is good to know. I use Deezer everyday via AA but haven't tried voice since there hasn't been support. I wonder why it's not in the release notes. There's still a number of bugs with AA in Deezer - mostly around which controls are on screen at any moment, but beyond that it's been pretty stable recently.

I've spotted a podcast problem (on top of all the crap problems playing them already has).

If I choose a series (e.g. search for "Hall of Mirrors" by Mike Bennett). When I click on one of the episodes it actually plays another (I then have to click on the one I want again!). It only does this once when I first go the episodes every day.

On another note. If I pause half way through an episode and use other apps, when I come back it's forgotten where I'm up to within that episode (I'm sure this is a problem on all apps though).
