Quick search / Quick home button on Android


Userlevel 3
Hi,

If you want to preform a search after clicking on suggested albums you need to click back as many times as you clicked on suggested albums.

It would be great if you will add a button or link that will take you home, it should be available from any page or menu item.

Thanks!

Forgot to add, this request is for the mobile App.
At the moment the app forces you to hit previous page multiple times which gets very annoying after a while, there should be easier way to navigate between pages.
I totally agree with this, you shouldn't have to go back 5 times to get back to the search. A hamburger menu on Android would be great, everything could be available with just 1 swipe

I literally came here just to post this suggestion. After delving into an artist's history or whatever, it's incredible how many taps it takes to get back to a screen that lets me search again. It's a massive usability issue, and by far my biggest bugbear with the app and service overall.
Will you add a home button on the mobile version ? When you listen to one artist then you go to similar artist and so on, you have to go all the way back to be able to do a research again. That's a bit annoying...

It's done !

I am also talking to someone on the Deezer Help account on Twitter. I think it's a massive thing to solve as the people think above me. I've been a user for 3 years but this really grinds my gear I have to say 😅

I agree! And we've passed this on to the developers. I hope there will be an update soon 🙂 Can't promise anything, but we'll keep you posted 🙂

When you start navigating through artists and albums it is impossible to go back to Home in a single touch or to go to My Music, or to start a fresh search. You have to press Back and Back and Back... etc.

Hey Felipe, moved your suggestion to this existing one, take a look and vote for it to be implemented 🙂
This is the one thing I'd love to see!

I often end up clicking through multiple artists and end up having to do 30-odd back presses just to return to the home page.
1. When you do multiple searches navigating through similar artists, discography, songs (normally when you are creating a long playlist or a queque list), the only way to come back to the "home, flow, my music, search" page is to click several times the back button, which is quite annoying. It would be useful to have always an home button.

2. When you have a queque list, it would be nice to have a "delete the queque" button. The only way, now, is to delete the tracks one by one.

I have to say, most of the comments on here are overly polite with "annoying" and "it would be good if".

Having a readily available home button is utterly imperative and fundamental. I don't even make pdfs without a "return to contents" button on every page.

Its not like there isn't enough room for it; the NOW PLAYING page is an absolute shambles of missing functions and duplicated functions. Why do we need two options to add music to favorites or a playlist? One is plenty. Why isn't there a home button? Why isn't there a search button? Why is there text with no links (artist name, album name)? Why is the options button a tiny little three dots whilst 90% of the page is taken up by an album cover; what is this, Windows media player in 2004?? Why not make the entire album cover the menu button?

Its not like anybody is asking deezer for innovation - this has all been addressed by competitors and was available prior to deezer entering the market. Deezer needs to catch up.



I'm beginning to think the Deezer "development team" infact has a forename and a surname and perhaps a little too much annual leave attributed to him.
