Add all tracks as favorite from favorite album

Hello.

 

When I mark an album as “Favorite” — I mean “all tracks in this album are my favorites”.

 

But I can separately mark an album as Favorite and some tracks from it as Favorite tracks.

And then I don’t have a single place to listen all my favorites. For example, you can look at Google Play Music: you can add specific tracks from an album to your library, and you can add the whole album to your library — it’ll add every track from this album to your library. And then you can listen anything what you’ve added in one place — your library.

No problem, thank you! I’ll wait for some decisions or even implementations.

I see artists also have “Add” button.

In my vision I suggest to add them (into favorites?) automatically if there at least one of their tracks, and replace this button with “Follow” for new releases, concerts, something else.

Interesting suggestion @AlexWayfer quite cool. Some people could say that they don't want the whole artist as a favourite, just the single track. But it's cool to have an option. I'll forward it on :thumbsup_tone2:

Also a fine case, related to this: singles.

Like this one: https://www.deezer.com/en/album/164147402

But I think you know, there are millions of them.

So, currently I can like a track in single “album” and don’t like “album”, and vise-versa, or like them both. It’s confusing.

 

The third variant looks more intuitive and logical for me, but it requires additional actions for some reason.

Thanks a lot for your detailed explanation @AlexWayfer I'll be forwarding it to our developers!

Alternatively, users have, in the past, complained that sometimes choosing a track as their favourite doesn't mean they want the whole artist to be added to their library. But the way you illustrated shows that we need to improve this part of our UX too :thumbsup_tone2:

Hm, interesting point! As I remember, in Google Play Music (sorry, but it’s almost ideal for me in UX) artist appears in your library even after adding one song, yes. But Deezer has more functionality with adding artists, like notifications about new releases.

I still think that “add to library” and “like” (or “favorite”) should be different actions. Sometimes a song is OK for me, I can listen it later, but it’s not a favorite one, which I want to listen again and again. Something similar can be applied to artists, maybe, like they can be added automatically to your library even by one song, but you can “like” them to filter them in your library and/or receive notifications later.

I don’t want to enforce these ideas, I like Deezer a lot (more than Spotify with the same “likes”, for example), but I want to describe such approach for you. It can complicate things a little, but only in two ways, not infinity, and also it adds flexibility, and I see a correlation with real-life, when you can have many albums (disks, vinyls), but not all tracks from them are you favorite. And all artists of disks you have are in your library, yes. 🙃
