:bell: You can now add independent accounts to your Deezer Family :juggling_tone4:

Up until now, you had to create individual profiles for all your loved ones, so they can also enjoy life through Deezer.

But some of you wanted your own login details too, so that you all don't have to share the same email and password. Times change, right? Well, once more, the community has been heard and we're ready to take our Deezer Family experience to another level.

You now have the option to:

  • create your profiles the same way as before (particularly useful for kids profiles)
  • add an individual account to your Deezer Family - what you've been waiting for!

Welcome to Deezer Family '2.0' :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: how does it work?

  • the Deezer Family subscription main account sends an invitation to an existing Deezer user
     
  • The user who received the invitation joins the Deezer Family subscription, but their account remains completely independent and private! Other members of the Deezer Family do not have access to it
     
  • Login is always done with their own credentials, and the new addition can easily continue to enjoy all the content from their own account
     
  • The connection to a variety of devices as a Deezer Family user is now a possibility
     
  • The number of Family members does not change: 5 profiles OR independent accounts can be linked to the subscription in addition to the main account

The requirements to join a Deezer Family account :white_check_mark:

  • The account to be added must be on our free subscription. If there's a paid subscription in place, you must cancel it and wait for the end of it
     
  • The main account and the guest account must be from the same country

 

For more info and a detailed guide on what to do, please see our brand new article here :writing_hand_tone3:

LOVE IT!  Well done guys!

I’m the admin of our family account but I can’t see where I send the invite from?

ONCE MORE DEEZER MAKING US HAPPY 😃 Congrats!!
but having them as independent accounts is optional right?
the old way is still available right?

Hey @Razzie 

What version of our app do you have?

Thanks a lot for the feedback @Sergi.Sanz :smiley:

Great, this should also allow family members to have their own Sharing preferences in the account settings, so this will e.g. enable an individual connection to their own Last.fm account. That way family members can now scrobble their own music to Last.fm and will not send their scrobbles to the admin’s Last.fm profile anymore, in case he has one and listens to different music than you. :wink:

I changed the official Deezer FAQ in the new Last.fm support forum accordingly:

https://support.last.fm/t/deezer-scrobbling/177

Of course Deezer Family members can still use the workaround with the Web Scrobbler browser extension and the Deezer web player or external Android scrobbling apps described in this FAQ, e.g. to avoid some known issues with the internal Deezer scrobbling option, but it is not necessary anymore.

This sound awesome. However I have two questions:

 

  1. Can I “convert” a family profile which I previously created to their own independent account?
  2. Is it possible to not participate in the Family Mix?

Hello @blendkrasniqi, regarding your fist question, it’s not possible yet but the feature will be added soon, I’m also waiting for it :wink: As for the Family Mix, it’s unfortunately not possible.

Have a nice day

Cool! That would stop me from switching to sp#%@fy ! :grin:

Adding family mix would be very awsome to family plan
As for example you can go with your wife and kids to a trip in a car and family mix would fit nice

@Kyrylo Penzykov nice to hear :slight_smile: Family Mix is already a feature with the Family subscription, you can access it from the homepage, in the “Made for you” category, usually on the right.

Ciao Mónia! I'm sorry, but we don't have support in Italian yet. Hopefully soon! :)

About your question, we don't have this feature yet… You can only download favorits playlist, general playlists and albums, but not organise them in folders.
