Given we are 10 months now since the last update, I think the answer is never. Garmin has never really supported the Descent Mk1 worth a damn. Anyone holding out for an update will most likely be sadly disappointed. Garmin seems to be taking a page out of Samsung's book, fix issues in the next version of the product (assuming there is one in this case) and then tell customers to buy the newer version. While I may buy another Garmin watch, it is extremely doubtful I would purchase a Descent Mk2 given what we have gone through with the Descent Mk1.
I’ll sign a petition to have Deezer app available on Descent! Btw, I also think Garmin has to be a lot more conservative with releases to the Descent watch because once you are 20 meters under water, you don’t want your watch to have a major glitch or you risk your own life. Its not necessarily the same risk with running or biking watches... Saying that, Garmin team has to provide answers to our questions and address their customers needs timely.

I don't believe the Mk1 has the hardware necessary to play music. The Mk1 is based on the fenix 5X and you need at least the fenix 5 plus series for Deezer.
Thanks thats a great review for learning more about Garmin products. Technically though, I’m not so clear why Fenix 5X cannot install a music player and it does have enough storage capacity to store musics... So I understand Descent MK1 is not the latest platform but it should be powerful enough for that function. Thanks Anyway!
Well again the Mk1 has a cpu, it has storage, you can add codecs by software update. That should be enough to enable it to play music files... Not sure it is limited by its Bluetooth chip not able to act as a host to send data to a set of earbuds? Interested to know more technical details on that if anyone has
