Still not gapless on Deezer

I read an announcement that Deezer had now introduced gapless playback.

I am a HiFi member and this is not the case yet. There is a very obvious cut between songs.

Try Arcade Fire- Funeral or INXS - Welcome records.

There is a pause/cut. Super irritating. That's not the way the artist intended the record to be played.

Why charge €15 amonth for that?

It doesn't happen on Spotify.

I assume that you are using the desktop app or web player for Deezer HiFi streaming? The gapless playback has been released only for mobile users yet, the desktop users still have to wait.

Gapeless is been rolled out bit by bit . If you are on iPhone you should already have it . If you are on Android you will see it only if you are on Beta ( And still not all the beta users got it ) . You are not paying 15 euro for the gapeless only right ? :-)

I'm with the OP.  I've moved from Spotify for the FLAC quality but until gapless is properly implemented you can have any audio quality you like and a 3 hour opera divided into 2 minute tracks is still unlistenable.  Nobody gets it right but there are tracks which segue seamlessly on Spotify but not here - Savall's recent recording of Beethoven Symphony 5 (last two tracks) is a case in point.

 

I'm not much interested in fancy add-ons; what's needed is to get the basics right so a given performance sounds the way it was recorded without artificial holes.  Is that really too much to ask?

I hope gapless playback will be roll out for android tv also (nvidia shield). Miss gapless playback (or crossfade)

Hello,I use a Yamaha streamer and when i can expect songs to play gapless???
It irritates me a bit that everything runs smoothly on the phone and that there is an interruption between songs on the Hi-Fi streamer.

Regards.
