music organization in folders vs API on Deezer

Hi Deezer team !

I’ve been struggling with the organization of my music on Deezer since day 1, as the user interface only allows a flat organization of playlists. I’ve seen this feature requested in other threads, and I wish you select it for development soon.

Recently I’ve started playing around with your API, and I noticed the https://api.deezer.com/folder/ endpoint. While I managed to create folders and put playlists in there, I don’t see anything related to this folder organization in the user interfaces (neither www.deezer.com on PC or the iOS app).

Is it because you started the back-end work on the folder feature, but the front-end dev is lagging behind, or is this folder structure already available in the UI but I completely missed it ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Kind regards,

Romain

As HIFI user , i can’t use Deezer anymore, I have many favorite Artists and Albums and I can’t arrange them into folders according to my wishes if it’s gender or my pupy  , I’ll move to  Spotify as they will start HIFI very soon !!

long ago I opened service request for this but nothing happened…

as I can see here you send this request from Idea merged into other idea …

I have nothing to vote for !!!

I pay to you (Deezer)  money, your should do what users asking from you,

This is last warning to you Deezer, unless you want to lose your old users!!

This is not request anymore, this is your last chance to do it!!

Thanks for the honest feedback @arix 

When it comes to library changes, we need a lot of consideration, because not all models fit everyone's tastes. However, there's a huge interest from developers to add more options to this in the near future. I'll be passing your comments on :thumbsup_tone2:

Have a nice weekend!
