Hi,

A few months ago I changed from Spotify to Deezer.
First thing I noticed, is that my Bose SoundTouch 'casting' feature, which always worked seamless on Spotify, is not available on Deezer.

So it's known: get the Bose SoundTouch app- login to Deezer and get a very Clumsy UIX, with limited options.

So really, I would like to ask Deezer: can you just release a way to cast to Bose SoundTouch (and similar devices) DIRECTLY from within the Deezer App?

You'd do many people a huge favor 😉

Hi there @John91 

Thank you for your input. You're right, the Bose app isn't as good as our one (for Deezer streaming, obviously). But we've been working on a new Cast integration for over 9 months now. And we're pretty close to its completion, to be fair. Once we've got set dates, I'll be letting the whole community know :thumbsup_tone2:

Hi Guys

im starting to get concerned that you guys are falling behind. I’m listening to more podcasts in general and wanted to play this thru my Bose soundtouch devices. I have 6 around the house so they’re not changing. I used Deezer now for years paid family subscription and it a been great.  But I can’t Stream podcasts from the Bose Deezer app but could do this with spotty. 
I would love to stream straight from the Deezer app.  Happy to join the beta program if that would give me early access ?

@Rudi @Rafael. ...any news? As @Abushby  said, Spotty does it since a while and it become very bad to have joke from our friends with using an app that can’t even ccast on bose device via network!!!

Hi there @Abushby @John91 

Thank you for your feedback. The integration with Bose isn't on the plans right now for a revamp. They use our API, so if you give them feedback about the same, maybe they can work with us to add more features to their app.

On our side, I'll be passing your feedback to the respective teams here at Deezer so that they're aware and maybe can push for it too  :thumbsup_tone2:

In the meantime, we have a new Chromecast integration - are any of your Bose compatible with this? If yes, you can cast directly from the Deezer app, with all the features you love :wink:

Sorry but since we re on 2020 it is not acceptable to hear thar xasting on a simple station via network is not possible. I kept deezer because features of the app fit my needs but if i can t use those features when listentin 90% of the time on bose station or beeing mandatory to use not long distance blutooth then it is the last month on deezer premium for me. 

Sad story!

Cc @Rafael.  @Rudi 

I've the same problem. I even can connect it with my Roku, but not with the Bose.

We really appreciate your feedback @John91 this is something that indeed we need to develop - but it takes time and we aren't there yet. Please rest assured, Deezer has moved forward a lot in the last 2 years. The next big projects would be to rework our favourites' limits and develop a better API for our integrations, among other things. We're really looking forward to the next developments and we won't forget these recommendations - subscribe to the topic to be informed :v_tone2:

As I've mentioned above to John, @Ketenaike this is indeed something that we can work on and want to, we just need to free the resources to make it happen. Your support push us forward!

I need this feature, I can’t get my family switch from spotti to deezer without this. Any progress on this?

This will be our big focus for 2021, @Verboon.Patrick thank you for your feedback and for your patience!

I have the same shortcoming here. Recently switched from Spotify to Deezer but this is a shame. We use the Bose Soundtouch a lot so it would be good if this came soon.

Thanks for registering your support @Peter Grobbee this has been a huge topic for quite some time now, so I believe it'll be worth your wait! Let's stay in touch so that I can keep you in the loop - also subscribe to this topic :relaxed:

They are Working on It like they are working on the Sonos family Members switch profile.

More than six years ago.

Maybe in 10 or 15 years we will have it 🤞

Appreciate the sarcasm because Deezer is indeed a small company :sweat_smile:  @Stephane Loyer 

We're actually developing more ways to connect our apps to devices this year. It's one of our big focuses for 2021. So please stay tuned to the community, it won't be years, but months :wink:

I really hope so. I convinced my family to change from Spotify to Deezer to "support" a french company. Everybody in my family has Bose (as we as I do) and they are not very happy with the decision due to that feature. I dont understand how Spotify and other apps can easily connect via wifi to stream music and instead Deezer cant....

That's because they developed a big feature to connect to other devices @zapotec and such feature takes an equally big development work, which is something we're also investing on as we speak. It'll take time but since 2021 is the year for Deezer to improve reliability and connectivity, I invite you to ask you and your family to hang in there for our updates! :pray_tone2:

In the meantime, thank you for your utmost support!

this is extremely disappointing, the API with Bose sucks so you guys better start fixing that otherwise you will lose clients

We already started @Alvaro Figueredo we're updating our SDKs this year, it takes a long time to get it done properly, but it's on our roadmap :relaxed: connectivity and reliability are big focuses for 2021 :thumbsup_tone2:

Any update on this topic. It  would be a big improvement if I could cast to my Bose Soundtouch!!
