Deezer starts letting subscribers download music

Paris-based streaming music service Deezer has just announced the launch of an offline listening mode, letting users download their music through their browser. Thus far, only Chrome is supported, though work on other browsers is underway. Unlike competitor Spotify's caching mode, a desktop app isn't needed as it's using HTML5's built-in support for offline web apps.

The downloads are only available for Premium+ subscribers, though if users can keep the music indefinitely hasn't yet been made clear. The open standard should also allow users to integrate social media features as well for sharing music.

Deezer isn't yet available in North America, though it has recently launched in the UK, with the company planning on coming to a lot more other markets as well in order to compete with Spotify, which has more registered users and subscribers. [via TechCrunch]
