Fast typo-tolerant search on Deezer

Posted by | 10/02/2014 | DEEZER NIEUWS, Uncategorized

We know how important it is to be able to find that perfect track instantly. That’s why we made it a priority to improve the search feature on Deezer. Now it doesn’t matter if you enter a typo or two, and auto-complete means that you can quickly identify what you’re looking for even if you don’t know an artist’s full name or the entire title of an album. Results are also now better displayed, with the most relevant results first, helping you get the music you want, faster.

Antoine Sinton, Head of Search at Deezer said: “Feedback from users indicated that a fast and efficient search feature was really important for a great experience on Deezer, so we have focused on making search lightening-fast and typo tolerant. We’re pretty happy with the results! Search is now up to 10x faster in certain situations, and we’re continuing to improve the feature with each day.”

Listening to a new release as soon as it comes out is one of the great benefits of being a Deezer subscriber, so we have also focused on improving the speed at which new music is indexed. This means that when we add new music to the Deezer catalogue, it appears in search results within an hour, if not instantly.

Note to developers: All of the above improvements also apply to apps built around the Deezer open API. Learn how to start building your own app over at the Deezer for Developers, and check out the incredible range of apps in the for inspiration.
