Chromecast from Deezer Desktop (Win10)


Userlevel 1
Would love to know why there's no Chromecast option on the Deezer Desktop app.
I realise that it's in Beta only, but is there a plan to include it?
I'm currently a Spotify (Premium) user and would be happy to change over to Deezer should there be the option to cast directly from the desktop app 🙂

Hi there @hnadj @Rob Igo 

With our new integration, it isn't possible to cast from a desktop at the moment. But we're still planning around this.

So like Rob said, it is possible to cast, but with the previous integration - not the new one which is more stable :thumbsup_tone2:

Hi there 🙂 It's going to be implemented soon 🙂 We're already testing it and it should be available with one of the next updates 🙂

Would be great. Any update on this?
Are you also testing a HEOS connect option?
time is flying and no chromecast option for your desktop app - why?
Deezer. Sort this out. It's high time you added a cast function from the Desktop App as you promised 6 months ago. We're paying for this If you can do it on the mobile apps you can do it on he desktop. Spotify manages to do it just fine.

A year ago and still waiting on this. WTH is going on?

Would also really like to see this.

Regularly use Deezer on my desktop PCs (Win 8.1 & Win 10). Much easier to be able to cast from them rather than suck phone battery.

I thought since deezer moved to a web based windows app (probably chromium/v8 as the engine) it would of made it pretty easy to allow for a cast function.

Some feedback from the dev team would be nice!

Hey @MarcelQ @Rob.W 

Thank you for your support and feedback.

We've been working for quite some time on a new integration, using Google's new protocol. As soon as we have more updates from our devs, we'll let you know :thumbsup_tone2:

@Rudi  Just started my 3 month trial - time is ticking.  Casting from PC (and FireTV support*) are absolutely mandatory features.

Sounds great casting from my phone, but for a premium service, there are way too many holes in the infrastructure of supported device and features.

(* Amazon FireTV is shown as a supported device, but I can’t find the app when I search for it.)

Hey @rruss 

Thank you for your support and for your patience.

We've just released our new Chromecast integration - have a go and let us know how it works.

About FireTV, we'll be checking this and back to the community once we have more news :thumbsup_tone2:

Hi Rudi, I can’t find Chromecast option in desktop app (Windows & macOS).

@Rudi forgot to tag you in previous reply.

Hi @hnadj thank you for contacting us. Could you please make sure that your computer or laptop and your Chromecast device are connected to the same Wifi, that your Chromecast is up-to-date and that you have the Deezer Desktop Version 4.18.50? 

Please let us know if you still can’t see the Chromecast symbol then. Thank you.

Hi @Pia.Deezer & @hnadj 

 

at the moment I don’t think you can cast from the Windows Desktop App (only from deezer in the browser)…?

--> There are literally posts from years ago saying you’re trying to find a resolution. Either your engineers are inept at developing software or you’ve simply been lying. In either case, that’s just sad and have no desire to commit to a half-baked streaming service.

Hi there @Tommy Barczyk 

Thanks for your honest feedback.

The teams that work for our mobile apps are different from the desktop ones. It's only a matter of priority, to be entirely honest.

I'll be passing your comments on so that everyone involved is aware of what you said :thumbsup_tone2:

“only a matter of priority”…? Sounds like an effing high priority to me! You guys have been promising this for quite some time now. Please pass this on too! (and if its still going to be a while, how to I get this previous integration, you mentioned before?)

August 2018 - July 2020: Still waiting… Now I know what Deezer means with “soon”  :frowning2:

We were unable to make this an option for our desktop app yet, @Progwolf but we certainly appreciate your feedback as we, the community team, can show our devs how our users feel about this :v_tone2:

It says on your website it does work on the  desktop app, but I can’t find out how (macOS). And here I see that it’s supposed to work, but it in fact doesn’t. I literally just signed up for this service, after years with google music, and then trying out tidal, and being burned by both. I was excited, thinking “finally! a streaming service that does everything I want!”

This is disconcerting to see how this is being handled. I left spotify for handling the 10,000 song limit like this, went to google music which is now being ruined and turned into youtube music. I tried tidal, but they’re buggy and not up to par. Maybe I finally capitulate and go back to spotify (sigh). It’s a shame, because I want to listen to HiFi music, but I’d prefer to be able to listen at all via chromecast.

We get you @Gates Bradley thanks for the very honest feedback. This is something we want to do too, as we have a pipeline of desktop improvements to make. But for the same reasons, we still need more time to get there. Subscribe to this topic so that you can be up-to-date with our progress :v_tone2:

I’ve been loving Deezer, but am truly disappointed by the lack of Chromecast on my desktop app. I was planning to replace Spotify with it, but this is a gamechanger. You mention priorities, but this just feels as though you aren’t interested in a large part of your community.

Up to a couple of weeks ago, I was able to cast Deezer from Chrome. This no longer works; I have to use Edge to cast from the browser. The downside of this is that the track title no longer shows on the TV screen. Also, no evidence of Cast being supported in the Windows 10 Desktop app. Poor show?
