Nice app - I can't see the equalizer icon next to the speaker to enable FLAC on my HiFi account in the windows 10 app though - is this a bug?
You still can't use your google account to log in to the app though 😞
This app does not create the Windows 10 media overlay, like the Windows 10 app, or other players, so it's not useful to me right now, I usually press the "STOP" media button on the keyboard to bring the overlay, so I can see which music is playing, and the media keys (Play/Pause, Skip Forward, Skip Back) don't work with any other application running in fullscreen.

I tried to like it, but it lacks basic functions that the buggy Windows 10 apps has, functions that I find primordial.

Are there any news about offline mod ? 😅
Hello!

I have Chromecast Ultra at home and desktop app installed on PC.

1.When I play FLAC (1 411 kb/s is FLAC, right?) on my PC, i don't see CAST button. I can't cast - is it something wrong with my PC? What's the point to listen to FLAC on PC which does not have DAC without being able to cast audio to external audio system?

2.Also, I have LG V30 mobile, which has QuadDAC enabled. Please, explain, when I cast audio from smartphone to Chromecast - which quality I get - is it FLAC?

3.When I'm not casting and listen audio on my phone with DAC, which quality I get there?

4.And when I download it to smartphone, then, which quality do i get?

I am sorry for asking these basic questions, but it seems to me that your FAQ is very hard to read. It says 'you can listen to FLAC' and then it says 'but you can't on your smartphone', but then it says 'but still you can if you cast'. I am totally confused.


I am hifi premium subsriber.

Thank you!

Be great to have controls built into the task bar icon view in windows. Pain to have to go to main app to skip tracks, pause. Other players seem to manage this fine.
Thanks

Thanks for the feedback, Richard. We'll pass that on to the team. Hopefully in the future 🙂

@Ziabo Happy to answer your questions. The chromecast option is already in the test phase and should be visible to all users soon 🙂 I'll let you know once we have an exact ETA.

FLAC is available via chromecast, meaing no matter what device you stream on, once connected to chromcast you'll listen to FLAC quality 🙂

When you're not casting FLAC is only supported on the desktop app and our supported sound systems

Same for downloads 🙂
Hope that helps.

@Anja that makes sense, thank you!

Any plans to support FLAC for stream/download on smartphones which have DAC installed (eg. LGV30)?
One of your competitors already have this working...

Cheers!
are you planning touch bar support for macs?
Really waiting for system "Now playing" integration. Basically, this is the only thing that stopping me from switching from apple music to deezer completely.

The new desktop app pushes a notification popup now sliding in the lower right corner about the "Now playing" song for a few seconds showing the album cover as a thumbnail.

You did it. Thank you a lot! Subscribed to premium and moved from apple music 🙂

And if youll add an apple script support to modify and read such data as like/dislike status of current song, shuffle status and adding song to library it would be really great!

This will allow community to create nice touchbar actions for new macbooks and your app will be standing out of 🙂
Is scrobbling to LastFM planned? From desktop player it doesn't work. Is there any workaround?
