Yes, it means that our product teams are aware users posted the idea and may have been discussing implementation. Thank you for your remaining UI feedback @htkblazer
This would be *specially usefully* when using Deezer from a dedicated HI-FI stereo system like ONKYO's where it's really difficult to find your music or search for new records in the system's tiny screen and you don't want to put a big old TV on top of your stereo.

Hey Rudi, with Spotify devs sniffing glue lately and killing their android app, it seems the time to strike is now. Like a lot of people, my music subscription is tied to my mobile contract and its about to expire. Unfortunately, missing features like this are keeping me from switching - do you have any timescales for this yet? If its gonna be another year I'll probably limp on with Spotify for another two years.

Not sure why the position on this has changed from :
20 days ago "As you can see above, we're already working on developing this feature. Please bear with us a bit longer"
2 days ago "Yes, it means that our product teams are aware users posted the idea and may have been discussing implementation."

Hi there @wozere @htkblazer

Thank you for your input. We haven't changed our position on this. We're working on it, developing it as we speak. It's a tricky one, hence why we haven't got any timescales yet. But as you know, making our queue lists cloud based was the initial phase for this feature to also happen. It's basically being worked on by roughly the same team. We need a bit more patience from you all, and I'll be here to give the updates once we've got them 👍🏼

No worries Rudi. I'm no developer, but I'm I do imagine that this WILL be quite a "tricky" "feature". As far as I can see it, calling this a "feature" is pretty crude, as it seems to actually revolve around how the whole thing is set up and will require a lot of work to change it. Patience provided.

Please don't let this get in the way of the very simple UI tweaks that are desperately needed though; home button and/or search function on Now Playing screen!

Thanks for your own continued patience and keeping everybody regularly (and painstakingly) informed, it's very much appreciated and goes a lot further towards Deezer than you probably know.

Thank you for your honesty @htkblazer it's really rewarding we've got the back of users like you to help our platform to improve.
So when will Deezer have an equivalent to Spotify Connect?
