FAQs About Uploading Music on Deezer

Q1: Can you upload music to Deezer on the mobile app?

Unfortunately, Deezer's mobile app doesn't offer an upload feature, which can be inconvenient for users who want to integrate their local digital music libraries. Browsing through Deezer's forum, you'll notice that some users have requested a music upload feature for Deezer's mobile app. However, four years later, it's possible that the feature is now in development.

If you need to add music to Deezer's mobile version, there are still workarounds. We recommend starting with a direct search on Deezer since it has an extensive music library. For Premium users, if your desired music is not available on Deezer, you can try the method mentioned above: first, upload your local MP3s to the desktop app, and then your audio resources can be synced across your devices, making it possible to access the MP3 files on the mobile app.

Q2: Can you download Deezer Music as a local MP3 file?

Sure, but you need to take a detour. Although Premium users can directly download Deezer music, they can only access them as cached files in the web player or music app. It is not possible to download them as local MP3 files, and hence, users cannot listen to them on other playback devices.

However, by using some third-party software such as TuneFab Deezer Music Converter, you can easily rip the music on Deezer losslessly. It can convert singles, playlists, albums, and podcasts on Deezer to MP3, FLAC, M4A & WAV audio formats free at 10x faster speed, and save them on your local device for offline playback.

To download music from Deezer to MP3 using TuneFab Deezer Music Converter, simply launch TuneFab, select the songs, albums, or playlists you want, choose MP3 as the output format, download the music, and enjoy your offline listening experience!

Q3: Can you add Deezer Music to Spotify or other streaming services?

Although Deezer offers a vast library of music from various genres and artists, sometimes you may not be able to find the resources you want in Deezer's music library, but available on Spotify or other streaming platforms. If this is often the case, then you might want to replace Deezer with other streaming services.

And there are two ways to do that! No need to transfer your music from Deezer to your device via USB. With just a few clicks or the help of a third-party tool, you can easily access your music library.

Let's take Spotify as an example, you can convert Deezer music to local files using professional Deezer music converters like TuneFab Deezer Music Converter, then open the Spotify desktop app, locate "local files", start adding, and just wait for the transfer. Or, you are welcome to upload local files to Google Drive, and then share the corresponding link.

Additionally, using some third-party tools that can transfer Deezer music to Spotify or other streaming services by converting the local files into a playlist that belongs to another platform. For example, if you are currently using Soundiiz and your Google account is associated with both Deezer and another music platform, you only need to select your playlists on Deezer, choose your target music platform, and finally click "convert" to complete the process. Apart from Soundiiz, TuneMyMusic and FreeYourMusic are also capable of doing this.
