With a huge presence in 180+ countries, Deezer is now more global than ever! :globe_with_meridians:

Are you missing home? Want to discover a new culture based on their music? :ferris_wheel:

Our new Country Selector is the answer. Travel around the world through the Deezer app with this exciting new feature and enjoy music recommendations from across the globe.

Let’s say you’re from the UK, but now live in Dubai. You don’t really want to be recommended content from the UAE, but from the UK. You now have the option to change that :wink:

How does it work? :iphone:

Go to Favorites > Settings, and access “Country selector” to change your recommendation country from a dropdown menu full of beautiful flags (mobile or web)

Can I change my country of recommendation as much as I want? :alien:

Yes, absolutely. You can be one day in France, the next one in Germany and a week after in the UAE.

Will changing my country of recommendation affect the language I’ve set my app to? :writing_hand_tone2:

No, don't worry. You can change your country of recommendation to Germany but still use your app in French.

If you have any other questions, feel free to check our support article here :bulb:

 So what are you waiting for? Get your passport ready and pack your bags to travel with Deezer app from today! :airplane:

but… this is not what I was asking for…I was asking for a way to categorize
the whole Deezer catalog by languages..a way to write in the search bar
#spanish and only see Spanish music...
.

This is incredible news considering the local content and playlists are terrible.  Thanks for opening access! 💚

Thank you all for your great feedback, the teams will be happy!

@Sergi.Sanz what you've requested is different. And still a very good idea, but related to Search (different teams, who are also working on improving Search) :thumbsup_tone2:

I thought you'd like it @Mr. Jahrami :grin:

After getting the Flow cards to the MENA region, this was the next best thing we were working on :thumbsup_tone2:

This is a nice addition!

I'm interested in how it works from a legal standpoint. I thought that some tracks were unavailable in some countries because rights had not been granted? But I can circumvent that problem by manually selecting the country?

And what happens if I'm in a country where Deezer is not currently available?

It doesn't change rights, @Jim Barton, but the recommendations you get across the app - they reflect the country that you choose. And you can only select a country we have recommendations for  :wink:
