Deezer Opens a New Window to Music Discovery
First introduced to Asia about a year ago, Deezer is now rolling out its new app on Windows Phone 8, featuring a new home screen with a focus on content, as well as enhanced features.
Engineered for music discovery, the home screen displays recommendations of the hottest tracks as chosen by Deezer's dedicated editorial teams around the world. Recommendations of albums and playlists can also be found under the "Discover" section.
Unlike other digital music services that rely purely on algorithms to churn recommendations, Deezer employs 20% of its global team to raid for the best in new music. These dedicated music fans listen to at least 250 albums a week across every genre, hand-picking the best new music from their country.
The new app allows people to share the tracks and playlists they love, so they can recommend their own hot new pick to millions of other music fans worldwide. On top of music discovery, the app has been designed to offer people hassle-free access to their favorite albums, playlists, and artists via the Windows Phone Live Tiles, direct from their home screen.
Additionally, Deezer subscribers can also quickly and smoothly sync playlists and albums directly to their phone. This means that music lovers in over 180 countries will enjoy the benefits of a virtual jukebox in their pockets, without having to incur hefty data charges on their phone bill.
The free Deezer Windows Phone 8 app is compatible for all the Windows Phone 8 devices and is available here.
