Deezer debuts Songcatcher and Flow widgets just for iOS 14

Deezer’s new iOS widgets

When it comes to music, sometimes there’s just no time to waste. You need your tunes served up quick and easy! So take control of your homepage on your iOS 14 with our new handy widgets that keep the beats going. Starting today, we’ll be rolling out two of our most in-demand widgets.

Deezer’s new Flow and Songcatcher widgets will help you enjoy and discover tunes in an instant. They’ll give you a quick and convenient shortcut to two of our signature features – without having to open the Deezer app. 

If you’re in the mood for a non-stop mix, turn to your Flow widget for a comfortable fix of old favorites and new tunes. Flow is your never-ending soundtrack of music that’s completely tailored to your personal tastes. If you’re scratching your head wondering what that tune is, then our built-in song recognition feature, SongCatcher, will help. It identifies musical tracks playing near you and lets you add them straight to your favorites and your playlists. 

“When we created our new widgets we wanted our users to have a faster and simpler way to get to two of their most favorite features. When it comes to Flow, the widget truly makes it a lean-back experience, giving you a personal world of music with a single convenient touch. And, as an added benefit, we’ve made sure you’ll never miss a song again by making it faster than ever to catch the tunes around you. This is only the first step for our widgets, so watch this space for more to come,” said Lucas Serralta, Deezer’s VP of Design and User Experience. 

Here are 4 quick steps to get your widgets up and running in no time on your iPhone: 

  1. Touch and hold a widget or an empty area in “Today View” until the apps jiggle
  2. In the upper-right corner, you’ll see an a button with “+” symbol 
  3. Tap the “+” symbol and scroll down to choose Deezer
  4. Then tap ‘Add Widget’, then ‘Done’.

After set-up, just swipe left on your Home Screen or Lock Screen to find your Deezer widgets in Today’s View. 

Deezer’s SongCatcher and Flow are available worldwide, to both our Free and Premium users. Make sure you have the latest version of iOS 14 and your Deezer app is updated to version iOS8.24 to get started.  In the coming weeks, we’ll also be debuting widgets for your favorites, top artists and more.
