Honor and Deezer announced a new partnership today, revealing that the music streaming service will be preloaded on all future Honor-branded devices.
This partnership will give Deezer some much-needed visibility, allowing consumers to get a taste of the app, and hopefully as a result, a permanent spot on users’ smartphones and tablets.
Deezer is available in 180 countries, dishing out a lot of curated and rich media, including personalized stations, podcasts, and audiobooks. Deezer also has a rich library of over 40 million songs. In contrast, Spotify has a catalog of over 30 million songs.
Gerrit Schumann, Chief International Officer at Deezer said:
“Honor customers will get the best of both worlds – Smart technology alongside the best in music and radio. With just one touch, listeners can access the largest music catalogue in the world, as well as over 40,000 podcasts, radio and audiobooks.”
Deezer will be found on Honor devices in Europe, the Middle East, Russia, South East Asia, Latin America, and North America.
