Siri voice control with Deezer


How can I control the Deezer App on my iPhone with Siri?

I only managed to open Deezer with Siri.
Are there any command to play my favorite songs or some special artists?

Hi @KickOff, voice commands with Siri don't work with Deezer at the moment. We are working on changing that for the future but I can't promise anything as for no. I will of course let you know should there be any updates in the future 🙂
Hi,
would it be possible to use a solution that exists in particular with Spotify ... :

With iOS 12 about to be released (I run the beta) will Deezer be able to support shortcuts?

this is something new for everyone and we are not ready yet. Once they release the iOS 12 we will start passing the feedback on to our devs 😉
Does Deezer plan to integrate with iOS 12 Shortcuts feature? If they already have, any idea how to set it up?

Your latest version doesn’t play nice with Homepod. It worked for the first time after update and now Siri always reports error with Deezer app.

Sorry about that. Can you please send us a screenshot of the error? Have you set up the siri shortcuts?
I can't send you a screenshot as it is executed on Homepod. I have set up Siri shortcuts, and even incorporated them into my shortcut routines. It works on my iPhone with voice commands, however when I try to start shortcut on my Homepod - Siri reports: "There is a problem with the app" - or "I can't do that on Homepod".
There are other apps like myTuner radio that work flawlessly - so I am just reporting this as an error/bug. I am using iPhone X with latest iOS, Homepod is updated to latest firmware with Siri in US English.
Thank you

Hi @Nero76 unfortunately the shortcut is working on iPhone only at the moment. I have passed this on and our developers will look into it. For the time being it will work on iOS and WatchOS only I am afraid.
Hi Flo,

Will there be plans to be be able to ask Siri to play certain artists through Deezer rather than just flow, favourite tracks etc?

many thanks

Hi @Barker522 unfortunately that is not something we can do at the moment, but it is not up to us I am afraid. We would love to have that implemented 😉
I just wanted to give this subject a bump. The point of music app is to play music on all available devices in the eco system, including Homepod. When you activate Spotify shortcut on Homepod it automatically connects to iphone and plays music. Even “small” developers such as those that created my Tuner Radio app did this - when I activate their shortcuts - my Homepod starts automatically to play radio station.
With Deezer shortcuts work only on iPhone, iPad, but not on Homepod. So in order to play music on Homepod one would need to open Deezer app, connect to Homepod and then play it.
I think this is something that Deezer should do ASAP, as this is one of the crucial features of every music streaming app. Thank you.

Hi there @Nero76

Perhaps you should start a new topic on our ideas forum so that we can pass the feedback after we gather votes 😉
