Is there any chance to include crossfade between tracks in any of the future upgrades of Deezer apps?

Like @MusicIsLife1122 said, it's already available on iOS and for android Beta users.

I understand that. but its been at least 3 months in beta. why not move to production branch? what am I paying for?

Hi there, we don't know why it's still in beta to be honest. But I'm happy to pass your feedback on again. Will hopefully be available to all users soon! 🤞🏼
Hi.

Crossfading between tracks doesn't work on Lenovo Tab.
Any help?

Hi @<a href="http://primoz.ropin" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener">primoz.ropin</a> pleas see above. There is generally no crossfade on our Android apps I am afraid.

As this is the thread about Crossfade with the most views, I'm posting my comments here.

1) The method mentioned in this thread for the web player as the Best Answer does not work anymore, the new design does not offer the fader option in the Deezer Labs tab anymore, so you cannot choose an overlap time for blending the tracks into each other.

2) The explanation for Crossfade on the support site is completely wrong. It does not create an artificial pause between connected tracks, but should do the opposite. I already wrote a feedback to that article, but thought I should also mention it here, because there may be misunderstandings about that feature and gapless playback (which would eliminate such artificial pauses created by Deezer apps). If developers also think Crossfade worked that way, they probably assume the problem has already been solved which it has not, as we all know.

Hey @bluezzbastardzz

Thanks for the detailed feedback, as usual. We're currently working on a report about Gapless to our Product Managers so that they know in detail what our community has said about this so far.
I'll feedback to our team about the article. And you're right, the option isn't available in the web version as it was before. I'll come here with a 'best answer' once I get an update.

You are right about the first section. By the way it never was part of the Deezer lab section on the web version. An HTML5 checkbox under Settings but both the settings option and the HTML5 option are not available anymore. This is the time to say, it's better to add it back. It was there already. No reason to take away features.

Thx for the heads-up. I'll update the tip I added back then so it won't misleading users.
So I have just been clever for an old guy and updated my Deezer software on my apple pc.

What a mistake. I can’t find the cross fader grrrrrr.

May be time to switch to Spotify
Can you load an earlier version. ??

Hi there @Paul Kirkley

Sorry for the tardy reply. Officially there isn't a way to load an earlier version. But you can have a look in our forums for workarounds of that kind.
I was listening to ott's "Fairchildren" and the breaks between tracks were not needed for this album. especially that it is recorded to be listened to as one track.

Maybe you could have an optional cross-fade function for such albums. especially for artists who are more on the Ambient side. or perhaps a long track at the end of the album like what was done in "Late night tales: the cinematic orchestra"

Thank you

Hi @bqd

Cross fade is currently available on iOS and the Android Beta App (if you wish to be an android beta tester please search this forum for how to apply).

I'm hoping they add it to the desktop version soon 🙂

Yes, while is working smoothly on iOS app, I remember there were also an option to switch it on on the web player few years ago. Then it disappeared.....

please, bring it back also to the desktop/web player!!!

please!
Why in Windows the Deezer has no more crossfading? And why there's no more Apps?
We talk about crossfading about more than a year and you do nothing???

Crossfading between tracks is one feature I like in Spotify and makes me use it instead of Deezer. 😕
And what is with the app's?
