Music streaming service Deezer has launched a new app on Windows Phone 8, featuring a new home screen and enhanced features. Deezer is available in 180 countries, but not the U.S. The new app puts more emphasis on curated new music, discovery and social sharing.
As part of an effort to differentiate itself from its many competitors Deezer dedicates 20% of it's global team to hand picked music discovery and selection. A more curated approach is also the cornerstone of Beats Daisy Music service scheduled to launch later this year.
Daniel Marhely, founder of Deezer, said: “Beyond the editorial recommendations and access to Deezer’s 25 million tracks, the design of the new Windows Phone 8 app provides a really sleek experience. The tiles, huge cover art and a smooth user interface take full advantage of the Windows Phone 8 platform and give people a great way to listen to and share their music.”
