Stop playing local popular playlist as a default playlist


Userlevel 1
I usually listen to classical music, industrial and metal. Unfortunately, after each launch deezer is starting playing the default playlist in my country. By reason of this behavior, I'm always clicking "Play" button and start listening to this "music" by mistake. It is annoying because I can't stand rap and local pop music.

Is it possible to add a configuration that allows me to remove "default" playlist or choose my own playlist?

Hi @KawInt that is the default playlist that is set whenever you start the app. I am afraid there is nothing we can do about it. Why don't you start the Flow instead? This way it will play music you actually like 😉

Hi @KawInt, I'm not sure if I fully understand... are you talking about the playlists featured in the home?

Not exactly, let me show a screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/JUUleGC.png
Here you can see a deezer desktop application that has been just run.
Deezer suggest me an appropriate flow and suggestions, but the default queue was taken from "Best Russian" playlist: https://i.imgur.com/avuBC9F.png

It drives me mad because I use keyboard hotkeys and if I click "Play" after restarting the deezer application, I'll hear this "music" that is not appropriate with my preferences

Thanks for the image! This is not featured playlist, it's just what is in your queue. Please click on Flow and this queue will be emptied.

The confusion is that when you play any song from any playlist the whole playlist moves to your queue by default. But when you play the flow the queue gets emptied 🙂

Yep, I understand, but I've never chosen a song from "Popular in Russia" playlist. The problem is that after turning the application on, I have a song from "Popular in Russia" playlist in the player by default.
Look at my usual workflow:
  1. Turn a computer on
  2. Deezer application starts by default
  3. Start doing anything (working, internet serfing, etc.). In this case, I don't care what happens with deezer application.
  4. "Hmm, I want to listen to music" => Push 'Play' button on the keyboard. Usually, I do it automatically, without switching to the deezer application.
  5. Deezer application starts playing a first song from "Popular in Russia" playlist
  6. And it drives me mad
For example, a player for google music doesn't load any playlist after the first load, so you can't start listening to inappropriate music accidentally.

I'll just add I hate that "feature" too. I'll never listen to local music on purpose, it's just a constant nuisance. Every now and then I'll forget about it and try to resume playing whatever I was listening to when I closed the app (like any other music player) and be greeted by really unpleasant music.
