Agreed. I have a lot of them and folder would make it much easier to navigate
An essential feature. Agreed.

I have long list of Artist and want to group (or order) them by my own custom parameters (for example, by style, by music type, etc). I know that I can create custom playlists, but in playlist I can add only single songs, not the whole artist, so I must add each new song from artist manually each time.

Is there any solution for this task - group/filter artist list by custom user tags?

Yes! More of that!

The same applies to Albums, and Playlists: provide us with a way to group/sort/arrange them.
Tags, Folders, whatever.
Yes, I have also this need: to be able to group Albums and Artists by custom created tags. As example, I have 4 albums with Christmas songs, each of them starting with different letter as album name and every time I want to jump between them I need to scroll between the long list of albums. This might be acceptable on phone or tablet, but when I am in my car and drive, this not longer possible, specially when using Android Auto ( it's not allowing to browse in Deezer during drive, I have to stop the car for changing an album).
Best would be to create a tag, add the albums there and be able to start a normal or random play from all the albums.
Looking forward for your reply Dezzer.
Thanks.
[title] - Create subsets of albums in my album collection
[description] - I use the favourite tag to create my collection of albums. I would like to have the possibility to create sub collections of albums. For instance a collection of albums to try out. And a collection of favourite albums.

It would be very nice if it is possible to group similar playlists in a folder, now it is one long list of playlists.

Good idea, but you can actually search playlists by musical genres. I've only seen folders in Itunes with Apple music

How about assigning tags to your playlists?
Userlevel 2
Add tags? I have looked for this option, but can't find. In the search field I can enter tags.
Is it possible to tag my own playlists?

My question regarding folders was related to playlists I liked, not my own playlists.

Any suggestions?

@Bert Apologies, I wasn't very clear! I was suggesting that adding tags would be a great feature, if we are not able to utilise folders. I don't think we can do it currently.

Ah @mhomer182 now I understand 😀 Yes, that would be nice too!

Hi @fouintainsofparadise sorry for the late reply, we are working our way slowly through this forum now. I have moved your comment to this existing topic as it was already discussed here. We have passed it on to the team, we will let you know as soon as we have an answer 😉
+1. I much prefer listening to entire albums rather than playlists most of the time, and as much as I love the feel of the Albums tab on Deezer, I find it to be an inconvenience scrolling through the whole thing any time I've kind of got a rough idea of the genre I'd like to go for but haven't settled on anything particular yet. I feel the ability to access saved albums according to some grouping criterion would do a fantastic job of enhancing the whole browsing experience and at the end of the day make it more enjoyable to interact with the app. A tagging system would seem like the most powerful solution to me.
Playlist folders would be great so that we would organize and categorize our playlists

@Bert Sorry for the delayed response. I've merged your idea into this existing one, just to make sure we don't have duplicates and are able to update all of you, when we have news about this :)
Thanks a lot for your idea! 🙏🏼

Hey there, I moved your idea into this existing one, make sure you vote for it 😉
I have a lot of cd's, and different kind of music, everytime I must scroll and search for a special disc... It would be nice if could search in my chapter Jazz for example....

There's an ongoing topic about this idea, so I moved yours into it 🙂

What I'm missing in Deezer is the ability to somehow select albums without adding them to "My music".
I listen a lot of new music in many genres and need to distinct new music from favorites.
E.g. I spend 30 minutes per week to look for new releases, trying 1-2 songs from release and select those albums which I would like to listen. All next week I listen new music, old favorite music - and here problems arise. Sometimes I want to listen something new in certain genre - sometimes I want to listen something from my favorites. How can I determine is this a new album or one of favorites? How to find something new in jazz in what I want to listen?
The queue in Deezer is only one, is easily overridden and cannot be filtered by genre/album/author.
Only option now is to open an album, select all tracks and add them to certain playing list (like jazz_later) but it is not very convenient.
What I propose is to add a tagging system. It will help users to organize a music library in convenient and robust way. I can mark new music by "Interested" tag, other can define more precise tags, other can define rating system etc etc etc and all this can be easy filtered.

Hey there, I feel like your idea is a lot like this existing one, where the tags would work like folders too, so I moved it here 😉 Check it out and don't forget to show your support voting for it.

Ana, what I'm looking for is ability to select albums without adding them to "My Music". Folders can help if their content will not be present in "My Music". You know, apples and oranges )
The only way to save a song at the moment (as far as I can tell) is either by adding it to a playlist or to 'Favorite' the song. I'd really like to have a music library and a separate "Favorite Tracks" category. Something like Spotify's '+' button that does just that. I'm aware that I can create a playlist for my library but it'd be so much more convenient if I was able to achieve that with a single click.

I don't think this feature is missing due to any legal issues since there are a lot of music streaming services that have it (Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music to name a few), please correct me if I'm wrong though. This service seems pretty great and it's the first potential alternative I've found to Spotify and it seems like a really basic feature to provide users with.
It would be nice if you can group your playlists.
For example, if you have a couple of playlists only with Future House, it would be nice to group them and give the group an individual name.
Then you can easily access all your Future House playlists with one click.

Same with playlists which are meant for road trips, parties, etc. Group them, give the group a name, open the group and only find the playlists which will fit to your current mood.

Exactly like you would group layers in Photoshop.
Many users have a collection that contain hundreds of albums or more. Therefore I think that it would be a nice feature if we were able to create subdirectories (folders) in the albums division that we can name ourself. It is a nice way to keep order and would simplify to rummage and finding content.
Just think about it. 😀
