Deezer country selector
Deezer

You may not get a chance to physically travel anytime soon, but if you're Deezer subscriber, the music streaming service is giving you an alternative way to experience the music and culture of another country. The platform has introduced a country selector feature that allows you to easily hop between regions.

In this way, you can see and hear localized content recommendations. Deezer sees this feature as a way to let expats reconnect with the music scene back home. It also gives those who want to explore a new culture an easy way to do so — no need to use a VPN or submit yourself to the dangers of traveling during the coronavirus pandemic.

When you switch countries, your language settings won't change as well, so need to worry about getting lost in the interface. Besides localized recommendations for music, podcasts and audiobooks, you'll see any local shows that are set to take place in that country.

You can switch regions through Deezer's settings menu. The feature is available through both the mobile and web apps, as well as all the 180 countries in which you can subscribe to the service. While a feature like this probably won’t give Deezer an advantage in its battle with giants like Spotify, it’s a nifty feature if you’re already a subscriber.
