Discussion on going

Maybe let me use shuffle when casting?


How can this happen in 2019? If i put on a song on my chromecast i dont want it to automatically disable shuffle and play the playlist in alphabetical order so I have to reconnect with the song to get it back to shuffle. I have the fucking playlist in alphabetical order so I can find my god damn songs like spotify has had this right forever. Even Tidal of all shitty services does it. Why do I have to give up everything for a little bit better audio quality. Like i really do want the better sound quality but do I really have to give up all kinds of usability and conviniance for it?

Like thank god for trial periods because if this kinda stuff doesnt get fixed I will cancel my subscription.

I just want to be able to play the song I want and it to then continue with the next song in shuffle. How is this a problem in 2019?

I can handle small things like not being allowed to que songs on the chromecast but it turning off shuffle and playing them in the order i have my playlist sorted as soon as I want to play a specific song is just stupid.

Shuffle through Chromecast directly isn't supported which is why you can't do this. A workaround would be:

- Choose shuffle and the playlist or favourites you want to listen to.
- Start casting to Chromecast -> shuffle should work
Is this a matter of Deezer or Chromecast though? Because there is no workauround for editing the current queue, like moving songs up and down or deleting it from the queue (but not the playlist) without stopping playback, is there?
It's really annoying ...

Hi there, I will pass your feedback on to our devs!
Shuffle would go hand in hand with queue management. There are two ideas suggested for queue management while casting. Please vote on the ideas.
