Discussion on going

Google Home Brazil


Userlevel 3
Recently, Deezer has added support to Google Home in UK https:// so it is already to deal with english commands in voice. Nevertheless this amazing integration has already been implemented, it is still not available to users on other places.

I should not be a licencing issue, since Deezer already have the rights, and Google does not charge for assistant usage, which means Deezer needs to flip a switch, so please do it.

Hi Rafa, at the moment it's only available in Germany, France and the UK. Hopefully we will be able to expand to moe countries soon, as it's not as easy as just flipping a switch 🙂

Hi Ana, I not meant to be disrespectful of your efforts but I really think it should not be that hard.

Looking at the dev docs, the region availability is defined when the assistant action is defined

(Refer to https://developers.google.com/actions/localization/#publishing )

I am (and I think it should be an 'we') NOT asking for portuguese support, and am totally OK with using it in english only, mainly because I already use it in english for most activities, and love it.

Summarizing I think you should add more regions to the current config of enabled actions.

This is definitely a "We", @Rafareino =)
I use Deezer in English since 2007 at least and I prefer Deezer to Spotify. So, it's not an issue the language, but it's sad to have a Google home, ask for music and receive a reply from it saying "Deezer is not supported..." Or "you should have a Spotify Premium Account". And I know people moving from Deezer to Spotify just because it's lacking integration with their Google home or other assistants here in Brazil.
So, Deezer, be fast and help us to keep our loyalty to you and your amazing app! 🙂
We are still waiting. And now google home is working on pt-BR comands (in beta). Just let us link our accounts here in BR.
code:
I do not want to believe that it's just a marketing issue to sell spotfy accounts, because here in Brazil we who are Deezer customers will have to migrate to sporfy so we have google home? Help us or you will lose many customers.
It's really unbelievable the lack of support to Brazil. As said before, an english version of the link is more than enough for us!
Really Its unbelievable the lack of support to Brazil. 1+ to migrate to Spotify
2+ to migrate to Spotify
Well @Ana. ... I love Deezer, but hey... Even if it was that harder, 8 months have passed since @Rafareino request? If you don't give us an ETA, I am sure we will migrate to spotify... I am starting the trial to use my google home appliance. Hope you do your thing before the Spotify trial ends...

Any official updates or at least an ETA on this? Frustrating that it's still not available for Brazilian users, you could at least make it available in English.

Vast majority of Deezer users in Brazil are TIM Music users. They receive pennies for each user, be them using the service or not.

They have absolutely NO interest in moving a finger to support anything other than the basic stuff, or going an extra mile for anything in Brazil.

Unfortunately you have to fork over some money to premium services like Spotify or Google Play Music.

Google play music allows for 6 users, each being able to play on 10 devices for just R$ 26,90, dividing that value by 6, it only costs 4,25 for each user. It's not difficult to find someone who already pay for a music service, so try to convince 5 more friends to join your Play Music subscription and it's gonna be cheap!

Also, IIRC, it also gives you YouTube Premium, with no ads, minimizable app, downloads and stuff. Good package.

Forget about Deezer. The Google Home support won't ever be added for here. They just don't have enough userbase paying the full price to care.

Dude, integration with Google assistant was implemented already, it works in other countries such as UK, it's just not enabled in Brazil, no idea what's preventing them from enabling it.
I am a premium deezer user, i just bought a Google home and it is so frustrating not see deezer as an option for music listening, and found spotify as option... I am really considering migrate to spotify after see that more than 9 months is past since the first post and we don't have an ETA at least.

5 of us then...
Come on, this is not a free service. We pay to use Deezer. Treating users like that is disrespectful. That's why so many people are giving up on deezer and getting spotify. It's been 9 months and no ETA, no updates, nothing. Getting really tired of waiting. It feels like Deezer just doesn't want to add Google Home commands for brazilian users, it's like we don't matter. People here aren't even asking for commands in Portuguese (we know you don't care that much), but you could at least add English commands support for brazilian users.
