Music-streaming service Deezer yesterday launched to everyone in the United States. The service, which has 40 million licensed tracks in its library, used to be available in the US via partnerships with Bose and Cricket Wireless, as well as Sonos. Sonos customers who paid $20 a month for Deezer Elite were able to wirelessly stream music from Deezer, but now everyone in the country can sign up for the Deezer Premium+ service on the web ($9.99 per month) or through the mobile app ($12.99 per month).
Deezer also offers more than 40,000 podcasts and radio stations, a personalized station service called Flow, lyrics, custom playlists created by both human curators and machine algorithms and more.
Sadly, Deezer’s ad-supported free tier remains unavailable in the United States.
Created in Paris, France, Deezer claims 40 million licensed tracks from major record labels including EMI, Sony, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. It’s available as a web app and on desktop and mobile platforms like iOS, Android, Kindle Fire HDX, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Symbian.
A free 30-day trial is available through the Deezer website.
