This beta app is so much better than the buggy crap I got off the Microsoft store that hasn't had an update in ages, I see the publisher is Deezer SA, so who knows how outdated the version is. It was driving me nuts, often I would select a downloaded track to play and it would skip to another track as if it wasn't downloaded. No such issues with the beta app even having to download lossless for the first time. The back navigation actually works and I can pause with the space bar  :giggle:. The download option isn't available but it does cache everything I listen to so you can still listen to those offline, I set the smart cache to 10GB

Both Premium and Family say 'High Quality", which I presume means HiFi

Nope that's always been 320kbps, but I can't go back to 320 now  ;D would have to get a another lossless account if they won't create a family one and my HiFi option disappears  :yawn:

Unfortunately, your presumption is incorrect. High quality is still MP3-based and therefore not lossless/Hi Fi.

To activate Deezer Hi Fi you have to go here https://www.deezer.com/en/offers/hifi and buy the service (it will show up as Deezer Hi Fi on your phone instead of Premium or Family). You also have to download the desktop application found here: https://www.deezer.com/en/devices. I don't think the lossless service is activated for mobile just yet.

Like Tenflare said "High Quality" is 320kb/s where as HiFi Quality is 1441kb/s.  Scott what you getting is probably HiFi quality because Deezer allows their current subscribers to stream HiFi quality but only until the end of the year I think.
