Deezer for Android gets redesign, predictive search function in new beta version

With services like its own App Studio, Deezer's already presented how it feels about mobile as the way forward. And, in order to keep the trend going, the music streaming service is now releasing a beta version of its Android application, giving that ever-growing subscriber base quite a few nifty features to enjoy before going completely mainstream. In this beta form, Deezer for Android sports an all-new design which, as the outfit notes, is laid out to make it "faster than ever before" to discover new artists. Furthermore, Deezer added a built-in, fixed mini player that provides music controls while outside of the app's main interface, and there's now also a predictive search trait which, you guessed it, anticipates what's about to be typed in hopes of making it easier to find the artist / song you're looking for. Like to think of yourself as an early adopter? Well, look no further than the source link below if you're looking to increase your reputation as such.

Deezer bets on Android to reinvent the mobile music experience

A new exclusive beta version of Deezer is now available for Android users
Leveraging the new abilities of Android, the version allows predictive search and built-in permanent mini-player among key features
The new user experience is focused on super easy music access

4th April 2013

This week, global music subscription service Deezer launches a new, recharged exclusive beta version of its mobile app for Android, designed to enhance the user experience for music fans worldwide and enable them to discover new artists and tracks like never before.

Key features of the new app include:

Predictive search – A built in mind-reader that predicts the name of the artist or track people are trying to access, meaning people need to spend less time tapping on the screen and more time listening.

Built-in permanent mini-player – Deezer knows that people don't just do one thing at a time and music can be a soundtrack to doing anything, so Deezer has launched the new permanent mini-player which allows people to navigate between tracks outside of the application e.g. while texting or typing an email, from both the device lock screen and the notifications bar.

Ergonomic design – Browsing for music has never been easier or more enjoyable and with mobile on the rise, Deezer has launched a striking re-design of its user interface making finding new artists faster than ever before.

Matthieu Gorvan, Head of Mobile at Deezer comments: "Deezer is a truly global music subscription service and smartphone adoption rates are rapidly on the rise worldwide. It's a key mission for Deezer to always make the best of the capacities of each mobile platform. Android allowed us to innovate further hence enabling new music discovery features."

The beta version of the new Deezer app for Andoid is available for download here and a final version will be accessible via Google Play soon.

iOS users need not worry – Deezer hasn't forgotten about you, so watch this space for further announcements in the near future!
