Deezer is a popular music streaming platform that lets you play a huge catalogue of music with lots of free features.
Deezer offers music streaming and podcasts with free and Premium subscription options to choose from. The service is available as an app for iOS, Android and on desktop, as well as on devices like smart speakers and within your browser.
Whilst not quite as popular as Spotify, the French streaming service has been around for nearly as long, arriving on the scene in 2007. Nowadays, the Deezer app is available in over 185 countries and has many similar features as other big streaming platforms like Apple Music and Amazon Music – including a catalogue of 73 million songs.
Deezer’s free version is a stripped back subscription, but it still gives you song recommendations, live radio, and playlist creation tools for music and podcasts. There’s also features like lyrics and SongCatcher, which is a Shazam-like song identifier that will tell you what song is playing around you in real time.
As the service is free, you pay for it by putting up with advertisements and being permanently stuck in shuffle mode. Deezer Premium subscription meanwhile lets you choose what songs to play, with the bonus of no adverts, plus the ability to download tracks for offline listening.
You can try out the Deezer app with Premium for a month for free. After that the Deezer monthly cost starts at $9.99 a month, with HiFi streaming and 360 Reality Audio available for $14.99 a month. Deezer for Students offers a discount, and Family lets six accounts access Premium for $17.99. Check out the full details of plans here.

We partner with Deezer and a host of other streaming services, helping independent artists release their music free of charge without signing away the rights to their songs.
