Deezer are upping their high-fidelity music streaming offering, expanding it to stream through multiple extra casting devices.
The Paris-based streaming service Deezer are bolstering their premium-Premium offering. Deezer HiFi is Deezer’s $19.99 a month streaming service offering their 43 million tracks in high-fidelity quality. This offering just became a lot more appealing.
Deezer HiFi now works with any wireless speaker systems using Google Cast or Chromecast, so you can stream high fidelity music to your sound systems straight from your app. Google Cast enabled speakers will include those made by Sony, Samsung, Onkyo, Pioneer, Devialet and many more.
Deezer has, of course, already worked with these streaming systems until now but not it’s high fidelity tier, meaning you can really put your speakers to use even when casting music. Deezer HiFi streams music at a “lossless capture of original analog audio source quality at 5x the bitrate at 1,411 kbps”.
Deezer’s vice president of Hardware Partnerships, Riad Hawa said: “With more and more consumers embracing voice-activated services and a clear market for high quality audio, it is important that we are in a position to offer both to ensure the best possible experience. Through deepening our relationship with existing partners and expanding our product offering, we believe that we deliver just this.”
Earlier this month Deezer integrated their service into Google Assistant, the voice activated AI Google use in their phones and home speaker Google Home. With voice control you can simply tell your Google activated speaker what you want to play whether it be a specific artist, track, playlists or anything else on the service.
On the case of home speakers Sonos, one of Deezer’s first wireless speaker partners, are expected to reveal their entry into the smart speaker arena on October 4th.
