Now available - Deezer on Amazon Alexa

I am a longtime user of deezer then switched to Spotify when they enabled Alexa skills. I switched back to deezer when Deezer joined the Alexa bandwagon.
I am seriously disappointed with the implementation.
I end up shouting at the echo. I get the syntax - international artist titles and track names must be complex to get right.
However, Spotify got this right by allowing the Spotify app to feed the Alexa echo-system directly.
Is deezer going to do the same?
if not I will go back to Spotify.

@Empireguys Hey there! I moved your topic to this thread, hope that's fine. :)
Which country are you from?
Can you tell me which exact voice commands you're using and what Alexa replies?
Uk
I am following your recommendations but it pulls up wrong artists 50% of the time. The app is great stand alone but will not command the Alexa client.

that's odd. it doesn't give an error message, it just play a different artist than what you asked?
When listening to Deezer on my Echo and an unfamiliar song comes on, Alexa can only tell me that this is (song) on (album). Telling me (artist) would be helpful!
When listening to an album or play list what do I need to say to resume playback from where I paused? At the moment I go back to the beginning or start Flow...

Hey there "resume music" should work. Have you tried that?

Hi,

I have a Deezer Premium account and I was thinking about buying an echo dot, but I’m not sure my country (Denmark) is supported for streaming Deezer on an echo dot.
I have tried to find a list of countries that are supported, but can’t seem to find one.
Will I be able to stream Deezer on my echo dot here in Copenhagen, Denmark if I buy one?

According to the announcement below it is still not available in Denmark.

I have Deezer HiFi and have Deezer set as the default music service on my Echo Dot. However, often when I ask for songs Alexa just plays a sample. For example, when I say "Alexa, play "So Long, and Thanks for All The Fish" by A Perfect Circle" it consistently only plays a sample and not the full song. This happens quite a lot with other songs also.

That's strange. Does it play exactly 30 seconds of each song or does it skip a track randomly? And does this always happen or just with certain commands?
It plays 30 seconds and actually says that it is “playing a sample”. I think it’s not finding the song on Deezer and so plays a sample from Amazon Music.
How can I connect my echo dot to deezer

Hi @shelly.illusion, I'm afraid we don't have an ETA, but we are working on it 🙂
5 month ago it was said it is going to be, but no support so far.
Is there any update on that at all?

Hi @Pavel.Luzhetskiy, please see above, Alexa is supporting Deezer in the UK a while ago 🙂

Well, deezer is not in the list of Alexa skills, it cannot be set as default media provider.
So I would say it is really poor support.
When trying to play Deezer on my Echo I get the following response from Alexa: “Your Deezer account does not support streaming on this device”. I have installed the skill but still no luck and have a premium account. Any suggestions?
