Paris-based music streaming service Deezer has announced several updates that “highlight the brand’s human and local identity”, according to their press release. The app has undergone a major rebrand and redesign, with the company logo being changed and the app for Android, iOS and Windows gaining a cleaner new look.
“We want to bring users a modern and human service that stands out from anything else on the market. Our unique look and feel also reflect our mindset as an industry challenger. We help our users create the soundtrack to their lives by bringing them the music they need for any moment.” says Deezer CEO Hans-Holger Albrecht.
Deezer’s latest update shows off the new lowercase logo, and brings a fresh, new look to the app with clear and simple to navigate tiles – all set on a white background.
Sections are really easy to navigate between, with four tabs along the bottom of the app giving immediate access to the home screen, your own music menu, search and Deezer’s Flow feature.
The music playback screen has also been updated to offer a brighter, more colorful display. The background color now complements the album art of whichever song you’re listening to, so changes depending on the album and artist.
In terms of the service, Deezer still offers over 53 million songs for the same price of $4.99 per month for the premium, ad-free membership.
Ad-supported Deezer access is free, which limits users to play in shuffle mode, and gives the option to skip up to six tracks per hour.
Deezer also offers a high definition option (Hi-Fi) that enables users to stream FLAC quality tracks at 16-bit/44.1kHz, an option not available by its competitors.
The music streaming platform currently has 14 million monthly active users and is available in over 180 countries.
