When I am asking to play something specific on Deezer, google says that something went wrong. I am on Android 11 and Oneplus 8 Pro.

Hi there. Simlar issue.

When I used Google Play Music I said “Ok Google. Play some music” and it started playing Google Music’s “Flow” aka “Feeling lucky”. I say the same Deezer Premium as my main source, it does nothing. Why, and how one may make it work? It was handy before, not anymore please?

We've reported the issue to our devs who have initially claimed this is being affected by Google @hpguru @Rustam Gimadiyev but don't worry, we'll keep pushing for an improvement!

Thank you for your feedback and apologies for the inconvenience :pray_tone2:

I installed Google again, and it is still an issue.

I have Assistant and assistant supported Sony headphones and earphones.

They are all crazy good, but nothing will play on Deezer.

Assistant only opens Deezer and no music happens.

  • “Ok Google, play my Flow on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, play My music on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, (Deezer Editor's Playlist) music on Deezer
  • ”Ok Google, play Hard Dance Quarantine on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, play Da Tweekaz on Deezer
  • Ok Google, play The Things You Hated by Refuzion on Deezer
  • “Ok Google, Hardstyle music on Deezer

I say that and nothing happens, it only opens Deezer?

Already following this up with you on this topic here, @Shrimp:


When asking GH to play a specific artist, such as Vivaldi, GH answers me saying ‘OK I will play Antonio Vivaldi on Deezer’ which indicates it well understood the request, but then what it plays is not from Vivaldi (from the first or second track).

Thanks for reporting it @FrancisR I'll let the team know about this!

In any case, there's work being carried out on the integration to improve the performance of voice commands. Stay tuned :relaxed:

It’s been a while since I’ve reported this bug and nothing changes. It makes Deezer really inconvenient in a car.  Youtube music works perfectly.

I can make it play the Flow, stop and skip a song. If I want to play a certain song / artist / album via the Google Assistant, I get the “Requested content is not loading.” in the Deezer app. It used to work fine.

And yes, I did use the commands listed in similar threads.

Hi there @calicdu 

Can you try casting from your app directly to the Nest?

Have you tried restarting your network router after about 3 minutes?
