Hi there, we mentioned it on other topics already that we don't have an ETA for other countries just yet. That's why I moved your topic to our ideas forum, so that other users can vote for Google Home to be supported by Deezer in SA soon. That way our team can see where the demand is very high.
We will also let you know on this idea topic as soon as we have any updates 🙂
It would be certainly useful to have Deezer available on Google home in South Africa.
Yes it is a must have!
Hi,

Google Home says that Deezer for Google Home is not yet available in my country.
When will it be made available in South Africa?

We already have access to such services as Spotify and Google Music for Google Home here. Should I cancel my Deezer and purchase a premium subscription with one of them instead?

Although, I would prefer to use Deezer.

Hey Justin, I moved your topic to this existing one where you can discuss this with other users and vote for the implementation in South Africa 🙂
Got my google home device today, pretty bummed that i can't use deezer, don't want to switch to google play music. please make it available in south africa, thx
PLEASE MAKE DEEZER AVAILABLE IN SA on Google Home
I asked this question half way through last year and was told that it would be implemented "in the coming months" this was 11 months ago....
I think its a bit short sighted of Deezer as eventually we are going to have to switch to Google play or spotify which is starting to look like the better option.

Basing your decision on a little community forum vote is hardly good business practice. It would be much more progressive to contact all your South African subscribers and ask them directly...

Use it don't use it....
I also dont want to switch from deezer, but it is so convenient so just say out loud what i want to listen to on google play music.
Hey, I also want to get Google Home linked to Deezer so hope we can get an update on this thread.
Hi, I agree, please make it available in South Africa. Always happy with Deezer!
I have been trying spotify out and it really seems to be at the very least on a par with Deezer... For the same price of a premium subscription...

Bye Bye deezer... Hello spotify on my google home speaker....
Hi Deezer, what's the story on this one? We're all waiting and getting ready to shift to Spotify or Google Play...
Yeah, this is a deal breaker for me. Been a deezer user for over a year now (Maybe 2 years) but without google home support, I will be switching to something else soon.
When can we expect Deezer on Google Home in South Africa?
I love Deezer, to me it's still just that little bit better than Spotify. But, I've been trying out Spotify, and weighing convenience and functionality. Unfortunately Spotify takes it, solely because of the ability to connect it to Google Home.

So I will begrudgingly move. I've now moved from Google Play, which as far as music streaming goes and doing you flavour, it super teri-bad, to Deezer, which is/was brilliant (love the flow), to Spotify, which is pretty good. I doubt that I'll move back to Deezer when they finally get their act together, because then I'll need to go through the whole "learn me" process all over again with whatever music I'm listening to at that time, and it could be years from now. It's time to settle down.

So, I bid you adieu old friend, but it's time to move on...
Come on deezer. Its 2018. Let everyone have deezer on google home for christmas!
Would be great to have Deezer on Google home for South Africa
Does anyone have an ETA for when Deezer will be available in South Africa on Google enabled speakers. I prefer Deezer over Spotify because of the local content and integration with local radio stations. Spotify works on Google speaker, but they don't offer a family account in South Africa. Can Deezer be the first streaming service to provide all the features of the top streaming providers to South Africans? Please?
Definitely a need to have Deezer on Google Home in South Africa, please!

We have no ETA for this I am afraid. We are doing our best to add more and more countries, but it does not depend on us only I am afraid.
We would really like to have Deezer integration with GHome in SA - Deezer has been saying for over a year that they'll be doing this (for multiple countries) but so far nothing. I'd hate to know the amount of users you have lost due to this (what seems like a) simple issue. Maybe time to move on to Spotify myself ...
Hey Deezer, looking forward to having you available on Google home in South Africa. Please keep us updated. Thanks

Who does it depend on further?
