Hey Asaf, Flow is supposed to play a mix of recommendations based on stuff you liked and what it thinks you might like, it doesn't necessarily play only your favorites. If you would like to here only the stuff you've already liked, you can go to "shuffle my music".

How old is your account? If you're new, like I am, maybe Deezer needs time to properly update Flow to your tastes? My Flow is only playing R&B type stuff even though I generally prefer punk and metal. I'm going to give it some time and see if it improves.

To help it improve, make sure you always dislike the songs you're not into, but also don't forget to favorite albums and artists that you do. That will make Flow learn your tastes better and faster 🙂

Hi there, I just checked your Flow and there's no "trance pop r&b music" in the list. Your profile is tagged with mostly new_age and other than that you have recommendation from the 70s and 80s, which makes sense because you have added tracks from these centuries to your favourites. You still don't have than many liked tracks or artist. Please give Flow some time to learn 🙂

Hi there, just to let you know how flow works: it is based on your favourites and playlists as they help the feature’s algorithms find similar tracks and finally it can pick up what is also the most listened on Deezer. I would suggest that you create a playlist with more of your favourites (tracks) on the Deezer website.

However, we recommend, picking one of your favourite artist or genre and start the “Mix”! through their Artist Page as this feature will play other artists of a similar Genre to your favourite artist to break the monotony of Flow, as this feature will help you discover more artists and music and as you like them / favourite them, this will help the Flow algorithm learn more.

This is merely a suggestion on how to help Flow’s algorithm work in your favour as sometimes Flow will still play music that has been “disliked / don’t suggest” as perhaps the user hasn’t used the service to an extent where it has learnt that they do not like that particular song yet. It is a learning feature and the more you play and dislike the more it learns.

Please kindly note that we are constantly updating the app and service we provide, and appreciate you taking time out to send us your feedback on the improvements we can make. Please be assured that this has been forwarded, and we hope that it might be an implemented change to the app.

Unfortunately that is all you can do. As explained it might take some time for the Flow to adapt. We are sorry if it does not work as you want it to, we will pass on your feedback 😉

Take it from me, it won't improve, it will get worse every time you use it!
