Hi.
I use Deezer in my both devices with Windows 10, PC and Mobile. I use the application published in the Microsoft Store. I have seen that you have published a new desktop App. In the webpage to download the application you have erased the link to the aplicación of the Microsoft Store.
You can see it here: https://www.deezer.com/es/download?utm_source=web_link
My question is: What is going to happen with the store App? Are you going to give up the development of the app? What is the reason to do that?
I use Deezer on my mobile phone everyday. Please, continue supporting Windows 10 Mobile.
Thank you!
P.D.: Sorry for my bad English.
P.D.2: I have tried the new Desktop App and I think the Store App is a lot better.

Hi @Pedro Jorge Matos, hi @sergiotw17, as for now no decision has been made 🙂 The Desktop app is a beta version and we are still working on the Windows 10 app. If there are any changes planned for the future, we'll let you know. But no need to worry at the moment 😉

Hi @sergiotw17

I'm also a UWP app user with a win10 PC and mobile device (Lumia 950) and I do love the app, particularly on mobile.

I've also been asking, mainly on Twitter, if Deezer stopped development of the UWP app, but won't get a straight answer.

Still, with the release of the desktop beta app, the erasing of the link on the page you mentioned and also the fact that Deezer only has two posts for mobile (Android and iOS) troubleshooting on the Troubleshooting and Tips section of this forum, I think the answer is obvious..

I still think it's a mistake to stop development of the UWP app, with all the Groove subscribers looking for a new home.., but at least the mobile UWP app is stable. Just hope they don't remove it from the store...

The Windows 10 app would be great with the functionality of the Windows beta app and the use of fluent design, which in turn would also benefit the Windows 10 mobile app :)

Isn't it funny that the best looking Deezer app is, by far, the windows 10 mobile app (and I use the Windows beta, Windows 10, Windows 10 mobile, iOS iPad and the Web client) ...
I definitely love the new desktop app way more than the store app. It has all the features from the web app that the store version lacks. Thank you Deezer. Will now subscribe.

Glad you're enjoying, Anthony 😃
I dislike the new desktop app even so much I might end my subscription.
