Where has my post gone that was titled:

"Why doesn't deezer music play continuously via Google Home?"

https://en.deezercommunity.com/troubleshooting-and-tips-4/why-doesn-t-deezer-music-play-continuously-via-google-home-10608/index1.html#post28450

So is this issue valid and Deezer are limiting amount of playback time on Google Home, which is why the post was deleted, or am I jumping to the wrong conclusions?

I was following this thread to see when a fix was going to arrive.

@saltyzip yeah, there is some jumping happening 😉

Your topic was moved into this one, where we are gathering all Google Home feedback. In fact it was already moved here when I first replied to you. Just check above and it should all be here ☝
So this is my third post on the subject and lets see if Deezer police delete this one too, or preferably update me on the issue.

Sorry just seen the email showing it has moved (link below) to a general google home news bucket, which isn't even searchable from the community, which I think is very poor.

Hey there, not sure about what you mean if you search for google home it's the first result?

Hey, I love deezer and all the stuff you're doing with it but Deezer is not working with Google Home in Morocco and it's very sad. I don't want to move to Google Play Music or Spotify but if it's not changing in less than one month, i think , i will need to left Deezer.

Thanks

Hi, at the moment is only available in the UK, France and Germany, but we have already passed the feedback on to our devs and hopefully it will be available in more countries 🙂
This is awesome! I feel like I'm personally responsible for this! After all the ranting and raving I did at various Deezer and Google customer support staff! 🙂 Can't wait to get home and try it out.
I have recently taken advantage of the trial period on GH and so far am pretty impressed with Deezer. However, I have one problem. I cannot get GH to play a mix properly. If I ask Google assistant on my phone to play a fleet foxes mix, it will play a fleet foxes song and then a song from a different artist. It's a great way of finding new music. However, if I ask GH to play a fleet foxes mix, it simply plays songs from fleet foxes.

Anyone got any ideas on this, on whether it's a bug or a feature that's missing at the present time, or is there a workaround?
Thanks!

That's how the Mix button on an artist page works in Deezer, it's a similar artists radio playing random tracks from related artists.

In the web player you can start "Most Played Tracks" with a "Listen" button which is a playlist of up to 99 songs from one artist which you can also shuffle if you want. See this example with Steve Winwood:

https://www.deezer.com/en/artist/3375/top_track

But I don't know if this is available as a voice command on Google Home.

Thanks, that is exactly what I want to happen in GH. When I say 'mix' it doesn't mix like the app or web player.

It looks like playing the artist mix is not supported yet by the available voice commands on Google Home and Deezer:

Hi @Annette1960, I guess you are talking about Google Home? 🙂 Please see above!
I use my Google home mini for playing music from my deezer premium account. I've mostly started playing a playlist in shuffle mode by saying "play playlist xxx as shuffle (in German "spiele playlist xxx als Zufallswiedergabe"). It worked for me very well till a few days ago. Now the shuffle command will be ignored first. It starts always with the first same song from the playlist. I have to make an extra shuffle command, when the music has started. That of course wouldn't be a big problem. But the now following shuffle mix consists only of maybe the first 20 same songs from the playlist, which means that it simply impossible to listen to songs from the other side of the playlist. This is pretty bad...

Hi there! Please unlink your google home and link back again. Also, please clear the cache of you app (settings>app>cache). Let me know if it helps!

Sorry, wiping cache and unlinking deezer from Google home didn't help. Two days ago it worked suddenly (before unlinking etc which I tried just now), but only for one day.
