Deezer is a popular music streaming service which has garnered millions of users in recent years. According to the team behind the service, it's the most personal way to listen to music out there. Previously, Deezer was only available on PC and mobile, but today it also launched on Xbox One.
Global information company Nielsen says gamers spend a little over 6 hours each week playing video games. Music lovers spend an average of 32 each week listening to music. Deezer supports background playback so Xbox One owners can listen to their favorite tracks even when battling monsters or taking down legions of enemy soldiers.
The newly-created interface allows Xbox One gamers to access over 53 million tracks as they play. There are many other features like "Flow", which provides recommendations, and "Family", which allows for many distinct accounts and playlists.
Jorge Rincon, the Vice President of Deezer in North America, issued the following statement alongside the service's launch on Xbox One.
Just as every game has its own soundtrack, gamers using Deezer for Xbox can get into their own personal Flow or listen to any number of mixes and playlists while they play, creating a much more immersive and personal environment. Additionally, gamers that do want to give their eyes a break from the game can still listen to all their favorite tracks using their console as a music system.
Deezer on Xbox One is available in most countries where the console is sold. Customers can download the software on their consoles and try it for free for 90 days. While the service has an ad-supported model on other platforms, the Xbox One version is only available to paid Premium+, HiFi, Family, and Student plan subscribers.
