Doesn't Google Assistant recognize Deezer as a music app?

I am using Google Assistant in Android Nougat (7.1.1). My main language is Portuguese, alright, but neither in Portuguese nor in English Google Assistant opens Deezer when I tell it "play music". Doesn't Deezer associates itself with "music playing" in Android inner settings?

I'm not sure, but I think Deezer is currently support UK/France only so Google assistant can work with UK/France.

Hi @alainsr, we don't support the Google Assistant yet. We've noticed that some commands are already working with Deezer but nothing we can change at the moment. But we are of course working on that and as soon as it's officially supported in all languages we'll let the community know! ☺️
Samsung offers spotify and google as default music services.

I can assure you that Google Assistant does NOT work with Deezer in the UK. Apart from Google Play Music only Spotify is listed as an alternative.
Please Deezer, fix this soon.
Many thanks

BTW. I note this topic is headed as " Solved "
How can this be when the issue of no connectivity between Google Assistant and Deezer remains ?

When a post is marked as a question an someone says something is the best answer, it will automatically set it as solved. Unticked that now to avoid confusion 😉

Is this still not solved?
C'mon.. fix this already. Spotify found a way around this. Are you saying we have to switch to another music provider to get this functionality?

Hi, this is not something to be fixed, it's just something not implementing yet. Our devs are aware of it, but we still don't have an ETA to give, I'm sorry.
Guess I won't be going beyond my HiFi subscription trial as I originally planned no assistant means no Android auto.

Shame. Thought I found my new music service.

Sorry to hear that 😞 We'll let everyone here know as soon as we have an update from the team about this!

All you have to do is fill your promise of 6 months ago and you have a new customer. Everyone has Android Auto integration that I have tested so far except you guys.
Deezer support said "soon" 7 months ago. If you give a realistic time frame I will CONSIDER keeping Deezer.

You're one of the best music service out there but lacking these features only makes you one of the best. Just shy of the best.

If you can give a proper time frame and it's reasonable I'll stay and highly recommend to others.

@SyCoREAPER I'd love to tell you a proper time frame, really. Unfortunately, this information is not passed on to us and the negotiations/developments are still ongoing...
Trust me, it's not fun to tell you guys the same thing for 6 months ;)
I will make sure the responsible team is aware of this growing thread here! 🙂

I just don't get it. You even build it into Alexa already but not Android, what Alexa is built on?
Well I'm glad you'll escalate it but I am only going to hold out so long. Right now Google Play Music is winning the race out of everyone else so they may become my permanent provider if there's no progress soon.


thank you for jumping in on the topic.
Could you please ask the product owner to include this story from the backlog into the next sprint? Thanks 😉

Any progress here? It really is a pity that it isn't intergrated yet. Such a deal breaker for so many users, myself included...

Hi Archie, no news as of yet unfortunately. But I'll pass this on to the team again and will let you know in case I anything new to share 🙂
I really can't understand it.
How is deezer working with Google home, but not with Google assistant?
It's supposed to be similar...

This is up to Google, hopefully they will support Deezer soon! 😉
I bought a premium because I thought that, like Google Home, I needed a premium account to start music using Google Assistant on the phone. But it cannot launch the requested tracks, although the request passes correctly and only the start page of the deezer is opened.
But if you ask Google assistant. play music. He runs a deezer and then flow without problems.
