Web player - UI/UX improvements


Userlevel 5

I imagine that Deezer’s web player will be made adaptive/responsive at one point and so this won’t be relevant when it’s all nice and responsive.

  • clean up menu of playlists: remove duplicate share and user profile and add/remove to/from favourites
  • clean up menu of albums: remove duplicate add/remove to/from favourites and share
  • clean up menu of artists: remove duplicate play mix and add/remove to/from favourites

I fixed it!!!!!!!!!

Fixed Deezer player
Chrome OS lock screen and Deezer info

Now it is stylish and skips. On WEB Player Labs settings you enable song announcements.

Then you disable it right away and it will show correctly. Otherwise twice announcements.

My headphones skips now also Bluetooth and on lock screen song info also stylish when locked! It was so easy to fix, I didn’t know why I only realised to try it today. I can use fully hadphones I have. Skip a track on them when in another room cleaning etc. It works now, glad for it!

This fixed my only problem I had with Deezer so far.

  • when nothing is playing, use the page that the site is currently on as the title like “Deezer - Home”

Thanks for the input @raccoonsarecool 

Why would you prefer the title to change to the page? Please elaborate on your suggestion so that I have more details when passing this further :thumbsup_tone2:

It’s so you can tell tabs apart! I suggested this because I was collecting some playlists (via opening new tabs) to try but then I noticed that they are all titled with the same name (Deezer - [currently playing song)! Pausing didn’t make the tab titles different either.

  • Show album art of currently playing/paused song in player on website

Ok! @raccoonsarecool 

That's what I'm talking about. Thanks for expanding on the idea, I'll be passing it on :wink:

Hi @raccoonsarecool 

Thank you for the feedback. I believe this could reduce the site's performance as it already takes a substantial amount of RAM to enable features like Flow, for example.

Could you please detail the reasons for your preference? :relaxed:

  • Currently on the web player you can go to the menu of a playlist and press on “zoom in on the cover”. This isn't obvious. I also suggest removing the play button on the playlist cover as there's another play button right below it

Perfect @raccoonsarecool 

I've merged all your very cool suggestions into one topic - especially because some of them can be subtle adjustments that would make our product better. I've done the same with the mobile app feedback you've given us :wink:

@Rudi the order will be very confusing for other people. Is that something you can change/control?

Hi @raccoonsarecool 

The other may confuse some other users, yes, but not us. If you want, let me know and I can edit the replies.

I suppose the link above for another idea to be merged here, right? Thanks again for your support!

Hey, could you also add these to the main entry: 

  • right click opens context menu 
  • website can be installed as an extension

Thanks :)

Thanks for adding to this @Veli - we're actually using this topic to centre all the feedback in one place :wink:

Where were you all this time @raccoonsarecool? The community misses you! :heart_eyes:

Hello.

From GPM coming and even on Tidal it shows.

Is there something I can do to make cover and other info available? Chrome on Chromebook, also on lock screen blank info. Can you implement that at Deezer or is there something I can do?

Other apps are stylish notifications ready

Thank you.

Good time of the day.

Tried on Windows 10 and it acts the same. Can it be fixed?

Hey @hpguru 

Thanks a lot for the detailed explanation and feedback!

I've moved your replies here because @raccoonsarecool suggested the same, not long ago. I personally think it'll be cool but we need to wait a bit longer until our teams are ready to develop this :v_tone2:

Thank you for taking time answering.

This is important, as it affects all computers, regardless of OS. Should be fix. I hope you can do that eventually. Then my Bluetooth headpones will work with skipping tracks as well.

Sorry for posting on wrong thread,  I didn’t find related as new Deezer user.
