Please integrate all music on my device, as YouTube, Amazon, and Spotify does!

On Spotify, Amazon, YouTube… all these music platforms… they all play all my songs, the ones I uploaded myself from my own collection and the ones I downloaded from them into one big list kept on my sd card. Why hasn’t Deezer done that? Will they? Please?

No idea what you mean by distributors.

I’ll try to be clearer. In the Amazon app, the Youtube app, and the Spotify app, those apps access ALL my offline content on my sd card. Why not Deezer?


You can upload to Deezer your mp3 library, so you can listen to those songs that aren’t in Deezer

Hey @dgoorevitch 

That's a question for your distributors, not us. They're the ones sending your content to the streaming services. We just receive it and put it on :relaxed:

Let me know once you get in touch with them!

Why would I do all that work?

Let me repeat the qustion.

Amazon has access to all my other music

Youtube does

Spotfify does

 

Why not Deezer?

Sorry @dgoorevitch perhaps I misunderstood you.

When you said "my songs", I thought you had your own made content. If you're talking about your own MP3s, you can upload them via your desktop as @walker mentioned. For more info, please see here:
https://support.deezer.com/hc/en-gb/articles/115004221605-Uploading-MP3s-to-Deezer

In the meantime, I'll pass on your feedback!

And thanks for the comparison with the music giants, it's flattering :relaxed:

I don’t want to upload them. They are already downloaded and on my sd card. I play those files with VLC, which I like because it has an excellent 10-band graphic equalizer that I can adjust for my different headphones. I want Deezer to access those songs on my sd card, where the Deezer songs are also stored in a folder only the Deezer player can access.

Here’s how the giants I’m comparing you to do it. They ask some version of this question: “Can we access your music files?” I click yes. Then I can listen to both those files I downloaded from Deezer and those I already have on my card. I like my own files from my own library because they are in monaural which is helpful as I am more or less deaf in one ear.

Thanks for elaborating on your feedback, it's extremely useful! @dgoorevitch 

I can confirm that we currently don't have any plans to improve our MP3 feature this year - but I've passed your comments on.

Now about your accessibility requirements, we can certainly discuss much-needed improvements! An equalizer, for example, or even a feature like a volume normalization, for the tracks you listen to at Deezer.

I'll be forwarding these concerns too. Thank you for your support!

It’s not an mp3 feature: it’s accessibility to the sd card. You already have permission to read and write; why not extend it to all folders on the sd card? That should be easy.

Apologies for any confusion, what I meant is that is connected to the same feature - uploaded MP3s is the feature we provide for you to access music files which aren't provided by our service @dgoorevitch but I'm not a developer so if you'd like to get in touch with ours, feel free to check our page here :relaxed:

Thanks. I’ll try to bend their ear.
