From Xbox to jukebox

21 st May 2013

Global music subscription service Deezer today announced another landmark partnership to give music lovers throughout Europe unlimited access to their favourite tunes - instantly from their Xbox games console.

On top of giving you access to over 20 million of the hottest tracks and thousands of themed radio stations, the new Deezer app for Xbox incorporates the latest Kinect voice and gesture technology so that you can take a break from dancing your socks off to navigate the specially designed screens using your whole body.

What’s more, each console can connect to up to three Deezer accounts simultaneously, giving you even more opportunity to share and discover music with friends. Once you have decided who the Halo champion is, you can do battle for the title of King of the Deezer Playlist.

Clement Cezard, Chief Business Development Officer for Deezer, said: “Now Xbox fans can enjoy music with friends directly via their games console so whether you consider yourselves soldiers, dragon slayers or rock stars there is a song for you just waiting to be played.”

“This partnership with Xbox gives the 3 million music fans already using our service another great way to experience and share tunes.”

Elena Branet, Entertainment Marketing Lead, Xbox Live, said: “We are delighted that Xbox customers will be getting a great new music offering with Deezer.  Users can find music on their consoles with their voice or gesture from Deezer’s extensive catalogue, listen to their favourite tracks on or offline and browse editorial picks.”

The Deezer app is available for download now, and to access all the great features all you need to do is subscribe to Premium+ on Xbox live.[1]
