Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with Apple Music to provide the full integration of Apple Music into the Mercedes me connect service “Online Music” and the MBUX infotainment system.
MBUX makes listening to Apple Music in Mercedes-Benz vehicles a simple, user-friendly experience. After linking a Mercedes me account to the vehicle, Apple Music subscribers will have access to more than 75 million songs, thousands of editorially curated playlists, and daily selections from the world’s best music experts, including all of the artists and hosts broadcasting across its Apple Music 1, Apple Music Hits, and Apple Music Country global live-stream radio stations. Drivers can also say “Hey Mercedes” using the MBUX voice assistant from the steering wheel control or directly on the display to request songs, albums, playlists, or radio stations.
This built-in integration will be available to new C-Class and S-Class owners with start of production this month, and to EQS owners this summer. Existing C-Class and S-Class owners with the latest generation of MBUX will also be able to enjoy the Apple Music integration with an over-the-air update later this year.
Easy Online Music activation
Customers activate the “Online Music” service in their personal Mercedes me account by linking their respective music streaming service from Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify and/or TIDAL. Customers can purchase in-car streaming data from a mobile network provider (MNO) via the Mercedes me portal, or activate it for the S-Class, C-Class and EQS via their smartphone data plan.
