New web player feedback here!


I was wondering if there's a way to show cover artwork in the new interface? Having the cover art accompanying the music is a big part of the musical experience for me and it's really bumming me out that it's not showing anymore.

Kesha has just released her latest song Here Come the Changes and here we are with ours: We have a new web player look!

The new design is based on our desktop app and looks clean and easier-to-navigate

Agreed. Also, I have not found a way to switch to the previous interface. Is there a way?

UPD. There is a pop-up screen if you click on "queue" button located in bottom left. It shows a big album cover, together with some history. However, the screen makes "Search" bar inaccessible.
The cover art was also displayed under the lyrics, which was a nice touch. Now all we have is a white background 😕

I also wish there was a way to switch to the old interface. I can understand that the new one is more spaced-out and maybe more mobile-friendly, but it is harder to use quickly on a large desktop screen.

What I find interesting is that when they switched to the now old interface (v2), the previous one (v1) was looking very similar to the currently new one (v3). The v2 interface was announced as a big UX improvement over the old one, but now they got back to the initial layout 😞
KennyMinigun: As mentioned in another post on this topic, you can actually disable the new look. You can find it as a feature inside the "Deezer Labs", which you can simply deactivate.
I would like a fix in the new layout. The left column is mostly empty and the cover art is lost. If I start an album or playlist and browse elsewhere, I need to see the cover art to connect me to what's playing. It doesn't have to be a mini player, if the idea is to switch us to the bottom of the main screen, but don't throw out the beautiful baby with the bathwater!

Hi there what do you mean exactly? Can you please explain in more detail? Do you mean the new design in the browser?
I'm totally agree with you! The old format was better. @Flo.Deezer here photo "What is wrong with new design". I hope it'll help you =)

Hi everyone, thanks for your valuable feedback. It is not currently possible to show the cover in the new design, the only way is to go back to the old design like @Soapbubble pointed out. Sorry about that!

Just trying the new design. All fine, were it not that I miss very much the album where the current track comes from! Name and picture please.
In the queue the album picture is viusalised - but not the album name.
Thnx
Hello!
I've just tried to switch to your new design and now I want to switch back to the old one!
Before the change I was able to see all my playlists in a list view (only names) and now it's gone 😞 So what I need to do now is click on playlists button and scroll down ALL my 20+ playlists to find the one I am looking for. 😥OK, guys, if you want it to be this way, please create one more view where I can see ALL my playlists also in a list view.
Onу more thing - music panel. It's GIGANTIC! 😱What was wrong with the small one on the left side? It was totally fine! Now THIS...it fits to the 1/4 part of my screen and can't be removed. OK, guys, if you want it to be this way, please let me minimize the panel to the size it ad before - the one that fit the main left bar.
Well, in total, I loved the design Deezer had before this change. Something went wrong in the logic for this design change...😒
Hope this feedback will be helpful.

ELizabeth
As advised, I will duplicate my feedback about the new design here as well. GUYS, I'm with you!

And as a positive note, "Search" box on the top is a good idea.

I do not like the new web player for the following reasons:

  1. The Search box takes up too much room at the top of the window. I like having it in the left sidebar.
  2. The player controls take up too much room at the bottom of the window. I like having it in the left sidebar.
  3. The album cover in the player is too small. I like the size in the current player.
I will be using the current web player as long as I can.

Fully agree with riegelstamm. The new player is not functional for the reasons as shown by him above. And not saying this just bcs I am used to the old one.
Same with the Windows app, which has nearly the design of the new web player. Doesn't work for me.
Hope this will not go live. Thanks!

New "Queue" window is cool and finally a big track progress bar!

It would be also great if "favorite tracks" tab would contain more tracks on one screen. I'm currently using the website at 80% scale, but this is not a solution 🙂

How to switch back? The new design is absolutely crap!
Sometimes page keeps jumping or scrolling to the top when switching to the next track in favourites with new UI.

Don't like the new web player for the following reasons:

  • Tiny cover, hidden somwhere down on the right corner. Hey - that covers stand for the music I'm hearing, I'm loving and you're squeezing it down to about 20x20 pixel? What's the reason for this? I really would like to know the reason...?!? Accident? Designer-Crap?
  • Clicking on the 'queue' button / cover brings up another screen. This screen shows the queue list and hides all other information *and* especially the search field. There's *plenty* of unused and wasted space to view the queue list beside the other information. I don't like to switch screens between the queue list and the search field.
