We're currently bringing a must-have feature in gapless playback :metal_tone2:

Have you missed out? Please see here for more info :smirk:

For our HiFi users, the FLAC catalogue of tracks won't need any touches. But for our beloved Premium users, we'll need to work a bit harder…

MP3's will need some work called re-encoding, so that we can remove the gaps from the tracks, one by one. It's a tough task, so for our iOS users, we were able to develop a nice little tool to help. And that's where we need you :muscle_tone2:

Under your app settings, and in Deezer Labs, there's now a button to toggle the tool for MP3 tracks. This tool will apply gapless on MP3, without us having to re-encode the track:

Our iOS tool for MP3 gap extermination

If you're up for the challenge, we need to you to toggle the feature on :zap:

This is a work-in-progress one, so please be kind - give it a go and let us know how it works. We know it won't be perfect but without your feedback, it's harder to get there :nerd::ear_tone2:

In what iOS app version is this option available? I’m using 8.12.1.1 and it’s not in there. There’s no available update in the App Store. Thanks!

Here the same. I can only choose Sleep timer and Automodus in labs.
By the way, a (dirty) solution for me for gapless playback used to be setting crossfading on 1.5 sec. But crossfading isn’t working anymore...

Yeah, crossfading doesn’t work for me.

Hi @bokolobs @Mirokrijo 

Thank you for your support! It's a progressive rollout, which means it'll get to you soon - you just need to wait a bit longer. I wanted to let you know in advance, so that you can welcome the feature first-hand :wink:

Love this.  Can’t wait to have it in Desktop as well.

Any updates on when gapless playback will hit the macs? (my android phone already works… tres bien!)

Not yet @Ironback Jack we're also eagerly waiting for it but I know the right foundations are being put in place to make it happen :relaxed:
