Hello.

This is why you need to cancel Google Play Music for Deezer Premim.

Google reached me out, paying since 2016, that they will close GPM and I am like what? They indeed offered for same price YouTube Music but it is awful. Most of my tracks, are available, but these 20% are not. Why to change for worse product paying the same? Didn’t like interface at all.

On YTM it takes ages to scroll one playlist with 300 songs… and you ask why Deezer?

GPM users are not happy with YTM and I bet some of them will go to your service as well. It is unacceptable to force paid customers for worse service closing old one.

I want to go Deezer Premium because you offer what GPM gave me, LOTS of music, 320K MP3 and, amazing music experience from browsing to listening. I am subscribed for Free now and start transfering music over (3 lists). Is there anything to make it easier? Any tips!

On YouTube Music they offer 256 kb/s, really? On GPM it was 320K all songs...

I’d like to start from when ready with free trial. I also want to continue, because I am 110% sure it is the best option for me, GPM will close by the end of 2020 -- so a bit in a hurry. Can you help me.

I want to get best offer from you, one year payments with only 10 months.

Can I get FREE trial and then one year for 99. Or is it only 99 without trial, or trial and then 9,99 month by month. How to get both offers. Paying for Google Music didn’t receive any other discounts than worse service and forced update… I am usually paying for service year after year to listen music EDM. I hope my music will stay here to enjoy. I need home for my lists for years to come.

I think it’ll be better because Deezer stays for the music and they won’t ruin it like Google did…

They literally made me cancel their subscription (since 2016) with one email and bad offer.

Now I am sitting at my couch looking what Deezer has to offer.

Hello again.

I am still on Free but I am already sold for your app.

It is better in millions compared to YTM and better in thounsands to GPM.

Like I said would not do a thing if they kept it, but now it is closing, so needed to do things because was unhappy… my honest opinion about Google they don’t listen feedback from long GPM users.

I complained about bad search on GPM, and on YTM is even worse, from a master of search. I searched tracks to add on my lists on Deezer. It gave me EXACTLY what I was searching!!!

Made it easy. I was able to transfer one of my list in less than a hour… less than 300 songs.

Easy to add tracks to lists and I am canceling GPM/YTM for 9,99 with happy face very soon.

Your service is so good, I am sure it is bargain at 99,99 a year (2 months free), I am not even going for Premium trial on your app… I go straight for one year with two month discount. This good it is.

In Chromebook can not install, so Browser, and this is why I could not accept Spottily because they stream on Web at 160 kbps. I need 320 kbps with my high end Sony bluetooth noise cancel.

Again I am really happy with your Free service, didn’t need trial to determine it is for me.

I will sign right away for a year with two months free and keep it for years to come.

Thank you and I will update my journey with Deezer.

You made my life easy again. No more I need to wonder when they close my access to GPM.

What I mean by poor search? Search Deetox - One Life and find it on Deezer in 0 seconds.

Search it on Google scroll all these links, pages, and things to find no song.

In zero seconds what I wanted to playlist
Where should I start on Google YTM to find nothing

And no more I need to waste my time searching music from irrelevant results on previous.

If you want to try why I am canceling Google YouTube Music, just use it for a hour and you’ll know why. It is pain in your head using it. Slow, search is horrible, music is less than anywhere else.

It just feels right to be a newcomer to Deezer. Will buy one year offer at 1st day of next month.

Who ever is creating Deezer, you are doing great job. Thank you.

Subscribed to Free trial on Deezer.

In a hour transferred first playlist of 288 songs all kind of hard dance music in edited versions.

I am so impressed, I can’t wait to pay more!!! For a year straight with robust discount.

Right now I canceled GPM/YTM for good.

It seems like they want to get rid of GPM users with their YTM.

Again it is nowhere near to serve a die hard music fan with less music, buggy interface, less features YTM lacks even column sorting in playlist!!! Who will use it, unless it is some kind of a joke.

I can keep my dance music repertoire in 320K. This is main thing.

No way I would accept less in 256K in YTM as Google Play Music ends soon.

There are playlist converters for switching between streaming sites, e.g. from GPM to Deezer or others. Not all of them support all sites, but I think TuneMyMusic.com should offer a GPM to Deezer transfer. You can find related posts here in the community naming other tools.

If you are interested in higher audio quality than GPM, you might consider Deezer HiFi with lossless FLAC streaming which neither GPM nor YouTube nor Spotify nor Apple Music offers. They have lowered the price to 14.99 per month recently, don’t know if there still is a free trial for it.

No problem, keep shining in your work. Your work is valuable.

Music is my way of life. I am happy and content because of music you provide.

I listen 320K and thanks for another user answering, yes they do provide free trial of Deezer Hifi, and is actually what their customer service offered when I asked about replace to GPM 320K -- we have even higher and 320K on Premium. I do not think on Bluetooth you can run FLAC. And my mobile plan is a bit showish for that anyway, so and oh I am fully happy in Premium 320K it sound awesome.

Huge thanks for your service, I am enjoying it with my heart.

Today I am transferring my last playlist to Deezer. It takes me home.

Music helps me to live happy life. Free to be and find another high :)

If you want to know what I found which might be worked on:

  • On GPM I was able to start a radio from track I started, on Deezer it plays from other tracks.
  • On GPM when listened track radios, artist radios etc. I was able to queue tracks, not possible on Deezer in the mix I think. Or what mix it is. Could be improved.
  • On GPM radio it showed next songs, I kinda miss it a bit, but not a big deal.

Everything else is better and it makes me happy to see HQ on cover image. Then I know it is streaming the best. Again thanks for your kind words and I am sure to enjoy more of it all.
