I think scheduling track mix would be awesome. The current behavior makes little sense, because if you find a song that you like you actually do not want to skip it and launch track mix…

Maybe to avoid confusion it could be called “Start discovery mix after this song”

Hi @eried, it's already like this when you listen to a song from the search...

Sure but my suggestion is about “Track Mix”.

You are listening some new songs, you like one and you want to listen similar ones, but right now it just launches track mix and skips the current song… which is weird.

I second this.

 

When you press “Listen to track mix”, the track suddenly stops and a new song begins to play.

 

it would be more intuitive, if the track mix started after the first song would end.

New to deezer here, and was surprise by this behaviour. Doesn't made sense. I totally second  the original poster suggestion.

I mean it really does not make sense. I actually do not use Track Mix in the intended way because of this. I let it run and when I get a song that I do not like, go back to “recently played” and launch track mix from one of those ones.

Hi there @eried @limonweb @Shadow V. 

Track Mix will start automatically at the end of a song you chose to play from the search. The button 'Launch Track Mix' is to straight away activate a 'mini Flow' based on that track that you were listening. I agree with @eried it could be scheduled, maybe an option to 'Launch Track Mix after current track' so I'll be passing all your comments to our teams - it can be more intuitive :wink:

I do not have that option in the beta, the icon switched to blue and says beta but nothing else changed. It says version 6.2.11.13. Which one you have with “Start song mix”?

Hi 

Go to settings - Deezer lab . There you should see an option to turn on song mix . 

 


I think It will be more accurate that if I select this function not to skip the current song selected.  This means that if I select the “Launch track Mix” function, play the current song and start the Mix when the current song is over and not skip the current song and start the mix as soon as I select the Functionality.

Ragards!

I actually moved them comments here @Shadow V. @Diego Osorio thank you for your feedback! The more comments we get here, the easier it takes for our product managers to justify the change and development :thumbsup_tone2:

Great work spotting it @Shadow V. might offer you a moderator job one day :smiley:

 

Launch track mix not functioning correctly. Too bad, that’s what makes Tidal more attractive. Even Spotify has. Radio feature. Launch track mix rotates to few selections. I launched “ biggest part of me” by Ambrosia and I hear “Baby Come Back” by player and “sad Eyes” by Robert John like every 5th or 6th song. The algorithm should simply say 70s, soft hits, rock soft hits, etc. it hasn’t worked correctly since you came out with it. The artist mix isn’t much better it plays random songs by similar artist only it’s just any song by the similar artist. Like an album track that was never a familiar song. Sometimes it plays a song I’ve never even heard of. This is really weak. Both Tidal and Spotify got you beat with artist radio. Too bad. I’d switch to Tidal today but they don’t have user playlists like Deezer.
