What is the difference between Automotive OS and Android Auto?

Android Auto is Google’s phone-to-dash technology, which takes your phone and displays it on your car’s display. However, Automotive OS is its operating system, meaning your phone is not connected to the display and the Deezer Automotive OS app will exist separately from the mobile counterpart.


How to log in with the sub-profiles of the family plan?

There is no ability to switch between profiles after login in the car app. To change the profile on a DEEZER Family account, the user will need to log on to the correct profile on his phone and then scan the QR code.
