Hi Bigdubz, please note that you can't control Sonos from the Deezer app at the moment. But you need to add Deezer as music service to your sonos app and control it directly from the sonos app 🙂 I'll let you know, should this change in the future 🙂

We're working on it 😉 😉

Good to know. Look forward to this. With the new Alexa integration, Flow, and the HiFi tier, Deezer is almost perfect for Sonos users. Just need that final bit of integration, Sonos Direct Control.
How can I connect to sonos from Deezer app, not the other way around. In other words, navigate through the songs on the Deezer app and have the music playing on Sonos. That’s my question.

@yoyomum this is not possible at the moment, but we've already passed this feedback on to the team. We'll hopefully have some updates for you in the near future :)

Also please vote for this idea, so that our developers see how important this is to our users

Hi there @Thomas Verstraeten

Please vote for the idea here so that it can be prioritised 😉
Hi Rudy,

Already vote 2 years ago for this idea

But if we still have to vote for getting it prioritised, it means that until now you have not worked on it ...

How is this going Deezer, can do it on Spotify for years, what's the hold up don't you want to be better??

Hi there @jlhunter70 

Always. But this involves a lot of work from a lot of resources. So far we haven't stopped, but it'll take some time until we complete it. Thank you for your support and patience though, we know it can be frustrating :thumbsup_tone2:

I am doing a demo as Google Music is going away. Bit of a deal breaker, Tidal and Spotify both have this feature. Let us know if it changes.

Any news on this ? You are saying for year that you are working on it but still no news.

Hello, because of the action of Niel Young, I decided to look for another streaming service. The dealbreaker is now: can I cast to my Sonos audiogear from Deezer? What is the last statement?

Yes, I know, but using the user interface of the Deezer app or the Sonos app is a great difference. The Sonos app has a terrible user interface.

Using the Spotify app you use the Spotify app, and cast/stream the music to Sonos. I expected this too for Deezer.

Deezer has been working for 3 years to get their Android app to play directly on Sonos? I guess I won't hold my breath. It's a shame, lots of ex spotify customers like myself looking for a new app. I'm trying your hi-fi subscription and it's a shame deezer wasn't ready.

Hi @henktannemaat @sfdog 

Thank you for your support guys, we hope that this feature can be launched very soon on the Deezer app :bulb:

I am in the same situation, looking for an alternative to Spotify. Having to manage your music in one app and then use another app to play it on your Sonos system is a dealbreaker.

I am in same situation, except that I don't mind the Sonos app. But on the Deezer app I can see Flow, daily mix, suggested playlists I might like. And on Sonos I get Flow, plus some generic playlists that contain lots of tracks that have nothing to do with my tastes.

Selecting a Sonos speaker seems like a simple thing.

Deezer Team,

 

4 years in the making. A year ago it was under development still. 8 months ago still under development.

Plenty of Android users, plenty of people paying HD+ with you.

When will this be available through the Deezer App? As a premium service, you should be aligned better with premium home wi-fi... there's enough demand, and only half cooked answers for 4 years from the Deezer development team.

 

Let's go!!!! When will this be available for Android and ISO..

That is unfortunately not entirely true as certain parts of my music (like daily mixes, friday releases, monday discovery etc) are not available in the SONOS app.

Hello everyone, unfortunately this was a project that was pushed back several times. 

We apologise for that, and understand your frustration. 

We are currently re working on it and I am confident this time will be the good one!
