With Apple Music you can find your favourite music from a collection of over 45 million songs. It’s also an easy way to uncover your new favourite artist and one of the best things about Apple Music is its personalised settings, which are based on your entries and music choices over time.
On the hunt for something new? Even though there are so many songs to choose from, browsing the music library couldn’t be easier! Selected playlists put together by the Apple Music team and genre based radio stations are ideal for exploring new sounds. New artists and exclusive content are added to the app on a regular basis. The latest news and cultural updates are available from Beats 1 Radio.
You can also find inspiration in your friends’ music choices: Follow them to see what they’re listening to or share your own top hits and playlists.
To protect your data allowance, you can also load content from Apple Music and play it straight from your smartphone. This means that you are prepared for anything, even a lack of Internet access while you’re out and about. And regardless of whether you’re streaming or offline: Apple Music never interrupts your enjoyment with ads.
Of course Apple Music is not just restricted to your iPhone or any other iOS devices – there is also an Android app for your PC and, thanks to Apple CarPlay™, you can also enjoy full access to your songs in your Volkswagen so you can start streaming in your car today!

Any other questions? We have put together solutions for some of the most common problems.
How do I find out the model year of my Volkswagen?
To determine the model year of your Volkswagen, please identify the 10th digit of your vehicle identification number (VIN). A 'J' stands for model year 2018, a 'K' stands for model year 2019.
Which Volkswagen Infotainment systems are compatible with Car-Net?
You need the "Discover Media" or "Discover Pro" navigation systems or the "Composition Media" radio to be able to use Car-Net.
What can I use Apple Music with?
Apple Music is compatible with iOS from version 8.4, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac, CarPlay, HomePod, PC, Android from Version 4.3 and Sonos.
Will Apple Music use up my data allowance?
Yes, if you are using Apple Music when you’re using mobile data. However, you can also enjoy Apple Music via WiFi and download content that you can then listen to offline. This helps you to save your data allowance. When you are using Apple Music offline, the system checks that your membership is still active once a month. For this you will have to connect to the Internet.
Can I use Apple Music on multiple devices at the same time?
Even when your Apple ID is installed on up to ten devices, you can only play music online on one device at a time. Transmission on the first device stops as soon as you start playing music on a second device.
