Music streaming service Deezer is now widely available in the U.S., meaning that anyone can now sign up for the service. The Spotify competitor was previously only available in the U.S. to those who signed up from Bose or Sonos, along with Cricket Wireless customers.
Deezer boasts a catalog of 40 million songs, along with a collection of podcasts and news articles. One of the service's primary features, Deezer FLOW, offers a personalized experience based on what you like, and what Deezer thinks you'll like. Features like FLOW, Channels, and more are meant to help boost discovery.
Deezer offers a 30-day free trial of its Premium+ membership, which costs $9.99 after the trial. Note that, unlike in other territories, there is no general free option for Deezer. You can check out the Deezer Music Preview app for Windows 10 on the Windows Store now.

Deezer's Windows 10 UWA is still so buggy.
How does the service compare to Spotify and groove? I've never really heard of Deezer
I think that sound quality is better
Deezer is default in my country but never used it
Im actually suprised with how good Groove is now. I can play albums and radio stations. But then again, Microsoft is one of the oldest music subscription companies around because of Zune back in the day...
I've used both, Deezer in Q116, Spotify for 2 months now. Deezer's flow seemed to play a more diverse mix of the bands I like and similar bands compared to Spotify, which repeats the same few songs from a few bands way too often when in Radio mode after selecting a particular band. Spotify's latest UI on W10 mobile is growing on me though, I prefer it to how Deezer was 6 months back. Next up is to try both premium services at the same time for a month to decide on which is best overall. I miss MixRadio, which felt like it was reading all parts of my mind to know I would like Y since I liked X. Disclaimer: I'm in the US and couldn't name a single top 40 song from the last decade.
On a related note, Rhapsody just updated their app to Napster, and it seems to have a lot of speed and usability improvements to go with. I still think it's the best service, by far, available on WP. It both has a nice app (which Spotify doesn't) and a family plan (which Groove doesn't).
Agreed. Just wish they would update their windows app for Win10 and add all the functionality of the desktop app
Act fast. President Trump will take it away!
Way to go Deezer , and hopefully Tidal will support Windows 10 too.
Deezer is awesome! Best "radiofunction" ever, just teach the app what you like and hit Flow.
Flow is very impressive.
One of the key differentiators to Deezer is the fact that they stream uncompressed 16bit/44Khz audio, meaning you get the convenience of the stream with the sound quality of the Red Book CD standard. The difference is palpable when heard via a good playback product, but may not make your $30 earbuds or PC/Laptop speakers sound much if any better. But hey, I work in an audio shop, so access to good gear isn't a problem.
For home use, that's pretty important but for mobile data, that might end up being a determent. Not sure if they're on T-Mobile Music Unlimited yet, so that might hurt their early adoption too.
Well seeing that I'm from the Caribbean, Deezer was pretty much the only music subscription available to us for quite some time.. So from the get go I was with Deezer. Groove Music subscription is not available in my country, neither is Google Play Music, Spotify etc.. Apple Music is here though. But i'm not really keen on anything Apple. No offence. So its Deezer all the way.
