Deezer is one of the greatest streaming services for all of you music lovers.

Deezer 6.0.8.1 for Android is up for beta testing and brings along the usual fixes, plus a new carousel view, but more on that afterward the official release notes for this build.

We've made a few changes to the Deezer app. Now there are fewer bugs so your app works like a charm.

Deezer is a music streaming service similar to Spotify and Pandora and has a standalone app for Android. Its latest beta release packs some tiny design tweaks and bug fixes, which have been mentioned in the official changelog, posted on Google Play, and here it is:

Changelog:

A smarter Deezer With this update, you can better manage explicit content throughout the app with new options in your settings. We also redesigned our Dislike icon to make it easier to understand. Finally, we fixed some display bugs in podcasts, and made sure all the Google Assistant commands work as intended. Enjoy!

So, according to the changelog, this version includes a new toggle in the 'App settings' section inside the settings, which allows users to hide explicit content only from their recommendations, or anywhere inside the Deezer app - very helpful for parental control. The next change comes with the new dislike icon, which indeed looks like a button, generally used to describe blocking actions, at least according to the Material Design icons provided by Google, but not only. "What is wrong with the thumbs down icon?" I would like to ask here. Version 6.0.3.44 beta also includes bug fixes regarding the UI display for podcasts and many improvements to Google Assistant voice commands.

Here is a list with some of the features it has and after that, we will get to the subscription plans offered.

UI/UX

The user interface is not bad at all but it needs some refinements. Perhaps, a completely new Now playing screen without blur and ugly icons would be a great change. Also, the media control notification buttons are enormous, so they should be made smaller. The good - the Flow UI looks very nice with those bold colors and large cards, plus the interface everywhere else is very simple and intuitive. I'd like to see a dark/black theme added in the future.

To summarıze, Deezer seems like a nice competitor in the streaming services business to Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music and Youtube Music. Plus the prices it charges are very competitive.
