Does anyone know how to cast or use Airplay from their computer? I am trying to connect to my receiver in my great room. Thanks!

Hi @dinfuso, I just checked and you can't enable Airplay in deezer on browser or the desktop app. You can only do so on the Mac directly so that all sounds will be transferred to the sound system via Airplay. Hope that helps 🙂

Hi @dinfuso, are you a Premium+ user and if so are you trying to cast from the browser or the desktop version? Can you see the chromecast button and what happens when you click on it?
@Anja I just signed up for the HiFi subscription. I couldn’t see how to do it using google chrome or the desktop app. I wasn’t using a chromecast, but I can if I have to. My receiver is a Yamaha and can typically receive streaming using Airplay.

Any plan to add the Cast feature/button in the destkop app?

I have to use the web app just because of this missing feature.

thanks!

Thanks for the feedback @mcordani, we'll pass it on to our desktop app teams :wink:

Hello ! Je sais que je n’ai aucun poids face à une société comme Deezer mais pensez-vous proposer prochainement une option de cast vers un téléviseur, une box ou un chromecast depuis l’app mac comme vous le faites déjà via l’app iOS ? Frustrant de pouvoir streamer sa musique depuis un téléphone et pas depuis un mac en 2021…

 

English version :

Hello ! I know I am nothing compared to a big firm like Deezer but do you plan to add the cast option from the deezer mac app to a TV, Box or Chromecast device the same way it works on iOS devices ? Very frustrating not to be able to stream music from a mac in 2021 when you can do it from a smartphone...

Thanks for the feedback @Pipou 

We totally get you, I personally think it'll be a great addition to our desktop app. But it isn't part of the plans in the near future, as we wanted to improve the core of the app first. This could change very quickly, so please register your support here:
