4th April 2013

This week, global music subscription service Deezer launches a new, recharged exclusive beta version of its mobile app for Android, designed to enhance the user experience for music fans worldwide and enable them to discover new artists and tracks like never before.

Key features of the new app include:

  • Predictive search – A built in mind-reader that predicts the name of the artist or track people are trying to access, meaning people need to spend less time tapping on the screen and more time listening.
  • Built-in permanent mini-player – Deezer knows that people don’t just do one thing at a time and music can be a soundtrack to doing anything, so Deezer has launched the new permanent mini-player which allows people to navigate between tracks outside of the application e.g. while texting or typing an email, from both the device lock screen and the notifications bar.
  • Ergonomic design – Browsing for music has never been easier or more enjoyable and with mobile on the rise, Deezer has launched a striking re-design of its user interface making finding new artists faster than ever before.

Matthieu Gorvan, Head of Mobile at Deezer comments: “Deezer is a truly global music subscription service and smartphone adoption rates are rapidly on the rise worldwide. It’s a key mission for Deezer to always make the best of the capacities of each mobile platform. Android allowed us to innovate further hence enabling new music discovery features.”

The beta version of the new Deezer app for Andoid is available for download here and a final version will be accessible via Google Play soon.

iOS users need not worry – Deezer hasn’t forgotten about you, so watch this space for further announcements in the near future!
