Alexa in the UAE

I have just purchased the Amazon Echo speaker equipped with the Alexa A.I.Tool. I was under the impression that Alex now supports the Deezer App. Since I cannot get Amazon Music in the UAE, I assumed that I could make Deezer my default music streming service on Alexa, however, for some reason, I am unable to make that happen. Any advice on how to go about it?

Hi there, sorry about that. We are still working on bringing Deezer to Alexa in UAE. This does not depend entirely on us how long this will take I am afraid. I have changed your topic into an idea so other people can vote for it and as soon as we launch it we will update this 😉

Thanks for the feedback. It would be wonderful if that were to happen soon.
In all honesty, now that Spotify is also available in the UAE, I am considering moving from Deezer to Spotify, but I'll give it until the end of the year to see what happens.
Thanks again,

I find this strange as a a few months ago I had alexa. Deezer and Sonos working flawlessly now something has changed. I’m not sure if it was my location on the app or something else but I can get it to work now.
But seeing as I had it working there must be a work around?
Please advise ?

Hey there @Ashrose

Check the language and location settings within the app to see if any update affected that. Relinking Deezer account could help too. Let me know 😉

Hey, I’ve just tried all of that and still saying it is not supported. What irritates me is deezer is sold in the UAE and clearly alexa has the ability to connect to why is it not working. Amazon have just taken over souq in the UAE so when is it going to work again ?
Also it won’t allow me to choose a location out side the UAE

@Ashrose does it let you choose English US as a language? If yes, could you please try it and let me know what happens?
so on my phone i had to disable the auto location on my phone settings then it allowed to me to choose a UK address. so i will try when i get home, i think this is how i had it before, the only issue is then when i ask about the weather it tell's me it is raining all the time 😂 but i can live with that, ill update you later.

Thanks
