Deezer Music App Updated With Android Auto Support And Chromecast Fixes

There's no shortage of Internet radio options available on the Play Store, but we're still waiting for all of them to get on the bus (so to speak) with Android Auto. Today Deezer, another streaming radio option, gets official support for Android Auto baked into the Android app. It's live in the Play Store now, though it may take a while for the rollout to reach every user. According to the change log, Android Auto support is only available for users who subscribe to Deezer's Premium+ option.

Deezer's Android Auto interface allows users to start "Flow" radio, mixes, playlists, or albums directly from the Auto menu, plus all of the standard playback management options.

A Quick Look At The Xiaomi Mi 5 At MWC 2016 (Video)

We had a chance to quickly go hands-on with the Xiaomi Mi 5 at MWC directly after its announcement this morning, and I know what your first question is: will I even be able to buy one? Answer: probably not. Xiaomi said China and India would be launch markets with "some other countries" following down the road, but if the company planned to make a big to do of opening up new markets for their hardware, I have a feeling they'd have made a lot more noise at this launch.

With that said, should you want one, even knowing you probably won't be able to through anything but 3rd-party retailers (and likely with non-functional 4G)?

Facebook Goes Beyond The Like Button, Now Has Reactions

Since the beginning of Facebook, users have been able to express one emotion, and that's like. You can like this, or you can like that. Disliking is not allowed. Angry comments, though, they're okay.

Facebook is changing this. The company is rolling out the ability to react to items in your News Feed with more than the Like button. Now you can also express love, laugh, show amazement, be sad, or get angry.

Sony Confirms That The Xperia Z Series Is No More, Xperia X Performance Is The New Flagship

Pour one out for the Xperia Z series. It's served Sony well since 2013, going through a relatively rapid five generations in under three years, plus offshoots like the massive Xperia Z Ultra, the diminutive Xperia Z Compact and its well-regarded descendants, and even a tablet or two. But all things must pass away, and so it is with the Z moniker. Probably. There won't be an Xperia Z6 at any rate, at least according to the statement that the company gave to XperiaBlog.

Official (And Very Expensive) RCA And Optical Cable Adapters For The Chromecast Audio Are Now In The Google Store

The new Chromecast Audio is neat. But the box only comes with a 1/8th inch aux cable (AKA a headphone cable), so if you want to use that handy little streaming gadget with anything that doesn't have a standard headphone jack, you'll have to dive into your rat's nest of ancient cables and adapters. Or you could head for Radio Shack, realize that Radio Shack closed two years ago and you never noticed, then head to Best Buy, ask the guy in the blue shirt where the audio cables are, find him again and ask him where the audio cable that you actually want is, then leave the store in defeat when he admits he's out of stock, then finally go home and wait a week for a $5 cable to come in the mail from Amazon.
