Desktop app works tremendously so far! Far better than the Windows 10 app. No bugs whatsoever, playback works perfectly. The design is a bit bland and simple though, but since it's still in Beta phase I hope it will get better.

Does the desktop app means that development of the UWP app, and as such, the Win10mobile app, is over?
Link with Google+, Twitter and Last.fm are not working for me so far...

Could you add "exclusive mode" ? That's a much needed feature for lossless streaming/listening experience.

I second that.

if you talk about music download in app, offline mode is not available yet.

p.s. there is a bug when i can't paste text in search box using right click on mouse. no context menu available. ctrl+v works.

Can I use Chromecast audio with Mac version of app?

no version for linux, at least yet. it's clearly a web (electron) app, so i think there is a hope.

I downloaded the new Deezer desktop Beta app to give it a go. All is good, but a few disappointing things. When I click Playlists, it only comes up with the large icons. It does not have the Playlist drop down list like the web site. The same with Albums. Plus there is no Feeds etc. I will still prefer the web site on my pc, and also I prefer my older app I have on the pc. I do hope the new App gets better with the features of the web site. Anyway, with an app, I will still always prefer the web site. Please do not ever take away the web site player. Cheers, Ken.

Agree. The design is bland for sure. Hope it gets better. I still always prefer the web site over the apps. Cheers.

To add to this, if we could have the option for a "now playing" box in the corner similar to the website that would be great. On a small laptop screen I appreciate the full y-axis when browsing my favourite tracks or playlists.

Once WASAPI Exclusive Mode is implemented, I'll be more than happy to upgrade to HiFi! 🙂
