Johannesburg, 17 June 2020; Global music streaming service Deezer has the following music tips and tricks for users to enjoy and make the most of their streaming experiences.
1. Go ahead and play DJ
Whether you want to boost that bass or ramp down the sound frequency, we’ve got a range of custom options to choose from. They include the treble reducer, vocal booster, dance, pop and there are several more. Head to your Favorites tab, then settings and under audio settings you’ll find the “Activate Equalizer” slider. Here you’ll be presented with different sound options where you can use the dials and columns to customize any sound to your liking. This feature is available for both iOS and Android users.
2. Oops, you did it again!
When your finger slips or you accidentally click on the wrong button, it’s easy to accidentally delete your favourite playlist. Don’t despair as it’s easy to turn back time like it never happened. Head to your Deezer account on a desktop and easily restore up to 50 playlists that were deleted in the last 30 days. Click on this link and select the playlists that you want to recover
3. Music Transfer
We get it. You have a soft spot for your MP3 collection. If you’re looking to transfer your files, we’ve made it easy for you to upload your MP3 music collection on Deezer. Simply go to your favorites section on the Deezer website or our desktop app. There’ll be an option called “My MP3s,” where you can easily upload your tracks.
4. Make your playlists pop
When you’ve made a great playlist, you want it to look as good as it sounds! Make sure your cover art is as personal and creative as you. To get started, select the pencil icon on your playlist. You’ll be able to edit an image by choosing a picture from your library or taking a live photo. This feature is available for both our Android and our iOS users.
5. Stay Connected
When you get a new phone or make changes to your home audio set-up, you can easily choose which devices you want to be connected to your Deezer account. Subscribers can select up to three different devices. Family plan subscribers can sign up to 13 devices across 6 profiles. If you need to remove a device, just head to “My Connected Devices” in your account settings on the Deezer website. Here you can check out which devices you could delete or unlink.
6. Banish naughty lyrics
Some song lyrics can be unsuitable for little (or big!) ears. But there’s no need to worry about offensive lyrics. We’ve got two options to help you filter out the explicit stuff. You can either hide it entirely, including explicit tracks and cover art. You’ll never see it appear in searches, recommendations or your Flow. Alternatively, you can make the ban feature a little less restrictive when you select “Don’t recommend explicit lyrics.” While we won’t be recommending any naughty tracks, you’ll be able to still manually search and play on your own. This ban filter can be found in your account under app settings. Available for iOS, Android or desktop devices.
7. Discover Fun Facts
Want to know if fellow music fans are loving your favourite artist or a playlist as much as you do? Swipe right on any artist page and you’ll find a mini bio, and a discography. You’ll also be able to see the number of fans and the most popular track.
If you swipe right on a playlist, you’ll also find some interesting tidbits. How about the number of tracks, the length of the playlist, the number of fans and the most popular track.
8. Music to match your mood
Our moods can often influence what we want to listen to. Chill, romance, happy, sad – whatever you’re feeling, you can find the music that complements your emotion. In our “Genre, moods and more” search option for mobile users, you can now discover tracks that fall into this category. So, if you’re setting the mood for a romantic dinner, or you’re just totally obsessed with pop music, you can search for tracks that fit any moment.
9. HiFi meets desktop
When it comes to listening to FLAC quality music, it’s always better to have great speakers. But in case you don’t, you can still listen to HiFi using your desktop. Go ahead and surprise your guests by busting out your desktop and blasting music in superior lossless quality. It’ll feel like you’re all in a professional recording studio! HiFi subscribers just need to choose “Audio” on their Deezer player and select the “HiFi 1,411kb/s button.” You can even download HiFi tracks to your desktop as well.
10. Take a shortcut
If you’re a desktop user, we’ve got a shortcut that lets you play music and other basic features just by using your keyboard. Open up your Deezer app and hit the “H” key. You’ll immediately see shortcuts to play, replay, adjust volume control and more. Use your arrow keys to go backwards and forward. Press the “M” key to mute. This new feature is available for all users on the web, desktop, Windows and Mac.
