Today we’re thrilled to announce our new Windows Phone 8 app, which features a revitalised home screen and a host of enhanced features to put the focus where it belongs, on music discovery.
The new home screen highlights local recommendations, as chosen by our dedicated editorial teams all over the world, while the recommended albums and playlists will also sit under the ‘Discover’ section. Unlike other digital music services that rely purely on algorithms to make recommendations, we uniquely employ music experts to unearth the best new releases in their country. In fact, over 20% of our global team are dedicated to this task, listening to over 250 albums a week across every genre. Their hand-picked selections give you unparalleled access to the hottest tracks around.
With Deezer on Windows Phone 8, it’s not just the editorial teams who get to share their favourite tunes. The new app allows you to share the tracks and playlists you love, so you can recommend your own hot new pick to millions of other music fans around the world.
In addition to music discovery, the app also gives you immediate access to your favourite tracks through the Windows Phone tiles. And if that wasn’t enough, you can now sync playlists, albums, MP3s and individual tracks directly to your phone, meaning your pocket jukebox won’t eat up your data allowance.
“Beyond the editorial recommendations and access to Deezer’s 25 million tracks, the design of the new Windows Phone 8 app provides a really sleek experience. The tiles, huge cover art, and a smooth user interface take full advantage of the Windows Phone 8 platform and give people a great way to listen to and share their music.” – Daniel Marhely, Deezer founder.
“Deezer’s commitment to take advantage of personal features available only on Windows Phone will create a unique music experience for people on the go.” – Todd Brix, General Manager, Windows Phone Apps, Microsoft Corp.
The Deezer Windows Phone 8 app is available now and works on all Windows Phone 8 devices. Download it for free from the Windows Phone Store.
