Dark mode setting can now be turned on or off at any time on iOS mobile and Deezer’s desktop app
Benefits include reduced eye strain and improved readability in low light conditions
August 14th, 2019: Today, Deezer, the global music streaming service, is giving iOS and desktop app users the option to activate its new ‘dark mode.’ The most sought-after feature from our fans around the world gives users the freedom to switch from their normal light music player to a dark grey background.
Given that Deezer users listen to music on average 30 minutes each night, the new dark mode feature can be easily turned on or off through the display settings to match each user’s preference. Dark mode offers users a number of benefits, including reduced digital eye strain in poor light and improved text readability.
While dark mode can be beneficial in the evening, some users may prefer a dimmer background in daylight hours to assist their reading experience or provide a better night’s sleep.
Dark mode users can also customize their visual experience by choosing an all-over dark background or keep the colorful version that is also available on bright mode. Users that choose to keep the vibrant background will notice the color dynamically change to match the artwork of every track that is being played.
Stefan Tweraser, Chief Product and Growth Officer at Deezer commented: “Dark mode is not only one of the most requested features from our users, but it’s also one that we are personally excited about. While we love our new rebranded app, we also understand that in some situations, it would benefit users to switch between light and dark. So, whether you want to prevent eye strain or it’s just your preferred style, Deezer’s dark mode is for those who dare to venture to the dark side.”
Deezer’s dark mode is available to iOS and desktop app users today and is also available for Android users. Free and Premium users can access Dark Mode on their mobile devices and on the Deezer website by simply heading to Settings, Display Settings and selecting Dark Mode. Within their settings, iOS users can also change the color of their Deezer app icon from the default white to dark.
