Deezer is getting an important update that adds Spotify-like features
Deezer is probably the fourth major music streaming service in the United States, even though it made its debut in the country just two years ago. In order to compete with much bigger services like Apple Music, Google Play Music, and Spotify, Deezer is adding a handful of new features meant to close the quality gap.

In an announcement published yesterday, Deezer confirmed that its mobile app will now feature an improved Flow tab where users will find personalized playlists based on what they listen to and inspired by their favorite artists. These personalized playlists will refresh on a daily basis, just like Spotify's Daily Mixes.

On top of that, Deezer users can discover new music from the Flow Tab and still have control over what genre is recommended. You'll be able to swipe right on the Flow Tab and see what are the daily recommendations inspired by what you've been previously listened to.

The option to discover new music while keeping control over the genre refreshes weekly, in the same way that Spotify's Discover Weekly does.

Keep in mind that if you're using an Android or iOS device, you'll have to go to My Music and tap on the Flow icon to access the new features. Continue to slide from right to left and you'll be able to discover all Flow suggestions.

I tried the app for 14 days, Spotify was much more user friendly in my experience. Hopefully they close the gap though

Really liked Deezer's flow function and lossless playback (on Sonos). However over all I find Spotify to be much better because of the social interaction for play lists. Nice to see Deezer adding the daily playlists though as this is a huge advantage of spotify right now.

Deezer is good, they have lots of undeground music, but ironically lacks a lot of mainstream artists songs, also they have this annoying thing of duplicated songs and songs that have weird skips... i still prefer spotify but use Deezer as i get a free premium account with my mobile plan :)
