One of the service's primary features, Deezer FLOW, offers a personalized experience based on what you like, and what Deezer thinks you'll like.

Deezer offers a 30-day free trial of its Premium+ membership, which costs $9.99 after the trial. Note that, unlike in other territories, there is no general free option for Deezer. You can grab the Deezer app from the App Store now.
