Thanks a lot for the huge amount of input on our Ideas Forum. There are currently 462 active topics in this forum which is just amazing!
We promised to look into all your ideas and feedback and can finally give you an update on some of them!
From now on we will do so as often as possible. Let us know what you think in the comment section down below 😉

Implemented


Add mood parameter to search for artists and tracks and filters by mood
Searching for tags has been implemented in the browser version for quite a while now. Just add a # in front of the mood or genre you want to filter the results by and Deezer will find exactly what you’re looking for.

Album views on desktop client
As suggested here, we’ve implemented a new albums and playlist view which now shows the the bigger covers to make use of the space.

Punk channel
Punk is now part of our channels where you can find new releases, popular playlists and artist you love!


Request songs
Are you missing any songs/ albums/ artists on Deezer? You can let us know with this online form https://dzr.lnk.to/MusicRequest and we can hopefully add it soon.

Play all my music in shuffle
The “Shuffle my Music” feature is now implemented in browser and the app. You can find it by tapping on “My Music” on top of the page.

On our Road Map


Favourite Tracks Limit of 2000 too small (and only shows 1000 on mobile app)
Thanks to all the votes and comments we’ve realised that this limit is not ideal and we’re working on it. It requires technical adaptations on our side though so it will definitely take some time. We will keep you posted.

More discoveries in Flow
We’re working on Flow right now, which includes the way it works in general and more 😉 We can’t share any details yet but will let you know as soon as we do.

Not right now, but we’ll keep it in mind


Dark/ Night Mode
Our teams have looked into it and who knows, it may become available sooner or later. 🙂

Roon compatibility
The idea has been forwarded to our teams. Unfortunately it is not part of our agenda at the moment. But that’s not a definite No for the future.

Hifi and apps - devices
The support of HiFi on mobile apps is not planned yet. But we understand that there’s a big interest in it and we’ll definitely keep it in mind.

Alarm
The alarm feature is not implemented, but we think it’s a great idea! We’ll let you know if and when we’ll be able to implement it as a feature.

Not implemented


Repeat button in Flow
It's technically not possible to repeat tracks in Flow because it's not a playlist but a random list of (recommended) tracks generated by Deezer based on your favourites. Therefore this isn’t something we can change right now.

Hopefully the "Promised by the end of 2017" Google home support in the UK is in there also as, you may have noticed, we are well into 2018 now!

I can promise that we are working very hard on it and we know that you've already had to wait for quite a while. As soon as I'm allowed to share details about the launch date, I will let you know! 🙂

Thanks a lot for your patience! 🙏🏽
Hifi on mobile devices should be a priority!

First, it's great that you try to implement new features requested by the community and you seem to listen 😉

A bit dissapointed that dark mode isn't really your immediate agenda though. It's pretty easy to implement and it's a highly requested feature...

I'm curious how an improved Flow would work, as it really repeats the same songs and artists too early. Is it true that adding more songs to my favorites will also improve this behaviour? Would it use all of the 2k possible favorite songs or only a part of it?

Thanks for the new option of playing a random mix of my library, too. When I use it and choose to show its play queue in the web player, I can see that it always uses 47 songs, and I can also switch on automatic recommendations. So it does not play beyond that 3.5 hours list, or does it? And I have looked for a similar option in the Windows 10 app, but only found a related one in the favorite songs section, not in "My Music". Is it available in the new Beta desktop app maybe?

I don't have any details about the exact algorithm of Flow unfortunately, but I'm happy to check if I can get any details I can share 🙂

And yes, Shuffle my Music is available in the Desktop Beta app 🙂

Thanks a lot for your feedback! 🙂

Thank you for your reply, I also saw a related posting of Rafael. yesterday where he said that basically everything added to my library would influence Flow, so more details would be really interesting. For now I have added more albums (444) of my favorite artists (397) to My Music, but cannot detect a change in the content of Flow at the moment, it still plays pretty much the same as before. I still have only very few favorite songs yet (15), but 61 very large playlists (some of them close to 2k tracks) resulting from my converted Last.fm listening history. Last but not least I uploaded 55 MP3 files to my account as well, so Deezer should know my musical taste by now. 😉

Another possibility of counting for Flow content would be my Deezer listening history, I guess, maybe having the most influence. But that would create a feedback loop, as it is based on the repetitions of songs and artists due to listening to Flow.

Flow stopped for me after 33 songs today, maybe because I use a free account. So I turned to Shuffle My Music which suffers from the same desease: almost the same content as yesterday, although I added a lot of albums to it in the meantime.

Hi @bluezzbastardzz

I don't work for Deezer so have no idea how it works BUT if I had to guess I think Favourites (tracks) will be the biggest influence so I suggest increasing this number so flow has more to work with - see how you get on (and let us know) 🙂

Is there a way to add many tracks to my favorite songs at once, as it is not possible to check all boxes in one of my playlists and simply add them to my favorite songs? Doing it manually by hearting each track would take much time.

For today I have gone the other way and deleted all 15 favorite songs which was quicker. 😉 Furthermore I'm using MS Edge now to check if the web player shows a memory leak with it as well.

I don't think there's a way to add multiple songs to your favourites in one go I think it's a case of clicking the heart next to each song (but even adding a few hundred will assist your flow which wouldn't take long in the web browser!) 🙂

Maybe there is a way with Soundiiz.com if they can access my favorite songs through the Deezer API and add tracks to them by converting a playlist from elsewhere. After connecting to Deezer Soundiiz shows some of Deezer's internal lists, but you would need to subscribe to Soundiiz, as it is a Premium feature.

Meanwhile RAM usage with MS Edge is slowly rising above 2.5 GB, too, independent from the content I play on Deezer and if I use Adobe Flash or HTML5 in the web player settings.

are you not using the beta desktop app for windows/mac? 🙂

No, I don't have a Premium account. RAM usage went back to normal in the meantime, so no urgent problem here.

So I just added two of my band repertoire playlists to my favorite songs (123) and tried Flow and Shuffle My Music again - no change, same old story, same old song. Maybe the database isn't that quick and updates overnight or even later, but for now I can't stand these two "radios" anymore. 😉

@bluezzbastardzz You can add more than one track at a time, but only on browser at the moment. It doesn't work on the app.

Regarding "Shuffle My Music" : Please check this topic: https://en.deezercommunity.com/troubleshooting-and-tips-4/repetitive-shuffle-my-music-5587

You are more than welcome to upload screenshots of a couple of different tests of "shuffle my music" there, so that I can pass it on. As for now, our developers weren't able to reproduce the issue. Meaning as long as you have a good amount of tracks, playlists and albums in your library, it should work.

@Anja Please tell me how I can add more than one track at a time to my favorite songs in the browser, because I cannot find that option. For example when I check all marks of one of my playlists and then open the ... dropdown menu on the right side to add all checked songs to a new playlist, I only see my other playlists, not my favorite songs. I can add one single song to My Music with its ... dropdown menu, but this option is missing when checking all tracks of a playlist or album. It would be nice if it were available, because that would solve the problem.

Thanks for the link to the related thread, in my opinion both users are right, I have the exact same problem with Shuffle My Music and Flow. I'll try to prove it with screenshots. Also note that I have manually added all albums of my favorite artists and all songs of two of my favorite artists in the meantime. Today I saw one song in Flow from an album I have added the other day, so maybe the Deezer database takes at least 24 hours to change the content of Flow or Shuffle My Music.

Ah 😓 So sorry, I missed the "favourites" part. You are absolutely right. This is not possible. But I'm happy to pass this on as feedback to the team.
Also if you want to, you could create an idea topic for this, but you don't have to.
I will definitely let the tech team know 🙂
Sorry again for the confusion.

Also I've passed your screenshots and all realted details regarding "shuffle my music" on to the team. Will hopefully get an update very soon and will then of course let you know!
I just really want Dark/ Night Mode
less stress on the eyes
Expansion of the 2000 Music Limit had to be a priority.

Fix the app for chromecast too, which is all problematic
