It seems I’m unable to have my Amazon Alexa devices play any of the playlists I have set up on my account. Including one I set up to upload my own (unpublished) music.
I can do this on any other normal streaming service (my Spotify account etc) so what is the point in a sub standard service from Deezer?
Is this likely to be addressed anytime soon?
User-created playlists are not supported yet, but we are working on this at the moment! ;)
Hi Rafael,

Good to hear that you are working on this but can you provide a rough estimate on the ETA for this feature?
Is this something that if you open-sourced the code that the community would be able to knock up a solution if your backlog is preventing this to be worked on?


Looks like this feature is never going to be released. Sad to leave Deezer, but this is something Spotify has figured out.

Hi @ollypollard , can you please make sure you are logged into the correct account in the Alexa app? It happens that users log in with the wrong email address and end up in a free rather than Premium account. Otherwise try to disable the skill and reconnect it again.
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?
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.

5 month ago it was said it is going to be, but no support so far.
Is there any update on that at all?
