Besides, also there are profiles for children that will allow you to put filters and check what they listen to.

Deezer HIFI will cost you a bit more expensive than the premium subscription but it allows us better quality. You can play in lossless quality for 14.99 euros per month and the first month is free if you bet on this option. Everything else is identical.

Create an account
The first thing we have to do is go to our browser, open the website and tap on “create an account.” You will need a email and password, your age and your name and surname. With that you will have already created the account. As we have said before, doing it is completely free and you don’t necessarily have to pay for a premium account if you don’t want to, you can use it at no cost.
Once you have created the account you must choose, at least, three artists. This will allow Deezer search for related singers or groups with the ones you have chosen and thus it will show you music that can be adapted to what you like without having to fall into general recommendations that do not interest you. The more you choose, the easier it will be to get it right. You can go scrolling, using the search engine or playing on the different categories (pop, Latin, rock, hiphop, electro, dance …)
When you have chosen them, your screen will open where you will be able to listen to the lists or songs you want, you will be able to discover playlists or you will be able to access the discography of your favorite artists.
It will depend on the version of the application you use, which may or may not conform to what we are going to explain below or that there is something that changes from the browser to the iOS app or from the browser to the Android app, for example. But the essence is the same and the functions that you will have access to from your computer or mobile are identical even if they are in another place in the menu.
At the top we will find a series of playlists created for you to listen to during the day. Are the Deezer Daily where you will see some groups that you have chosen as favorites but also other similar ones that you may like. Just play the list you want (in our case there are three) and enjoy it.
You can touch on the lists to see the songs that there are, the groups or to see the entire duration. At the top you will find a summary: some of the groups, the total of songs and the duration. They will generally be divided by themes or types of music if there is a lot of difference in style between your artists. If you have marked heavy artists but also Latin artists, for example, the lists will be “themed” so that you can choose the one you want.
One of the advantages of Deezer in its free option compared to other rivals such as Spotify is thate allows us to choose the song we want And we don’t have to settle for random. We can go to the next one but we can also choose the song that we want to listen to directly.
Artists and recommendations
At the bottom we will find some general recommended playlists that we can listen to. The difference with the previous ones is that the “daily” are created with artists related to your tastes but these are playlists created in a general way but that can fit with what you usually listen to, for example.
As you scroll you will be able to see your favorite artists or direct access to some musical genres that may interest you, to new releases, to Hits of the moment or to popular playlists that have nothing to do with you but that may interest you if you want to know what is being listened to at the moment, for example.
Inside every artist you can see his full discography, a top of your most popular songs, similar artists, related playlists or information from your biography, for example. You can play in “mix” so that it starts playing randomly and using all his songs from all his albums. Or you can go to each of the albums or singles to listen to just what you feel like.
On the left you can also find popular podcasts or search by categories. You can find podcasts by filtering according to many different criteria. First you can choose by category if you want humor, news, education. As we scroll we will find some daily recommendations or collections, original from Deezer. But you can also find podcasts divided by duration (less than ten minutes, about twenty, thirty, more than forty) or by network if they are TED podcasts; from the BBC, The New York Times, etc.
Another of Deezer’s options is that it allows us choose stations to listen to live without having to resort to the app of each one of them. From here you can listen to the content live whatever the station you are interested in: Radio Marca, Cadena Ser, Cope, Los 40 España, Cadena 100, Kiss FM, Rock Fm … Just hit the one you want and it will start playing . Of course, you cannot pause and continue listening, nor can you “pass” forward or backward.
