Streaming Service Deezer Working on a Meditation App

‘Zen’ app is already being tested

Deezer, one of the larger streaming services, based in France is already testing a meditation or well-being app, as it is being dubbed in Belgium.

The app goes under the name of ‘Zen’ and features content for guided yoga, meditation, and inspiration. The app is currently only available on iOS with an Android version in the works.

During its first earnings call after the company went public through a SPAC in April, CEO Jeronimo Folgueira said that the firm plans to roll out the meditation app in 2023, and sees a big opportunity to “cross-sell content.” Deezer declined to give more details about the launch.

The iOS app page specifies that the app hosts 600 exclusive items of content across categories. Users can create a new account for the app or sign in with their existing Deezer account. A community post indicates that the app can suggest content based on your mood (great, neutral, bad) and goals such as reducing stress, sleeping better, improving relationships, and getting more focus. The sessions range from calming sounds for better focus and relaxation to guided chapters for yoga and breathing.

Once Deezer launches Zen to a wider market, it will compete with giants like Calm and Headspace Health. Both these companies have been trying to expand their services by offering features in physical activity and the mental health space.
