Play my mp3 playlists on Google Nest mini

Hi,

I have a collection of mp3s that I have uploaded via the web and saved them as playlists. I used to be able to ask Google assistant to play “playlist name” and it would reply with “Sure, here’s your Deezer playlist called ‘playlist name’ and it would play on my Nest Mini. But now it just replies and says “Sorry, something went wrong, give it another try” and doesn’t play anything. It will play my other Deezer playlists fine by voice command but it is no longer playing my uploaded mp3s saved as playlists. Any ideas why, or what could be causing the problem?  Thanks.

I've also got confirmation this isn't something we support at the moment or will support in the near future. Apologies for any inconvenience and confusion! @dduk100 @dibo :pray_tone2:

This isn't supported @dduk100 could you please confirm if you were able to do this before?

Thank you for your patience and support!

Yes. I was able to do this before and it always played my created playlists from my own mp3 uploads. I can cast my audio from my mobile phone to the Nest Mini then play the tracks that way, but of course, it is a bit stop start in places, so it’s not ideal. Oh well, if it can’t be done anymore, then it can’t be done. It’s just strange that it used to work in the past, especially, if it’s not a feature that you have implemented.

 

Thank you for your reply, much appreciated.

I asked here regarding the same issue weeks ago.

This always worked before and suddenly stopped.

I am still unable to play my own playlists.

Getting the same error.

I cannot understand why @Rudi now says this isn't supported. In others threads you said that Google and Deezer are aware of this matter and are working on it? :-(

I think most people in that thread were just talking about created playlists using tracks already available in Deezer. I’m talking about (and I think you seem to be talking about the same thing) created playlists from my own mp3 uploads. It always worked via voice command before and now it doesn’t.

It's also confusing for me, I must admit @dduk100 @dibo I was under the impression the integration could only play the MP3 tracks via Google Home if they were streamed from the Deezer app on a mobile (Chromecast integration).

I've asked our devs for more info, I'll let you know once I've heard back from them.

No, I can’t stream my mp3s from the Deezer Android app, the app just skips each mp3 when I press the cast icon and select my speaker (and the same thing happens if I select my TV, as I also have Chromecast connected to my TV).
