Hey @jaapveen 

At the moment no, but I encourage you to ask their support team about an integration, while I'll be doing the same on our side :relaxed:

Also, please vote for this idea here :thumbsup_tone2:

Hey, I love Deezer a lot, but I also like Volumio. Why not put the two together? I would love to enjoy deezer everywhere in my apartment, but since I already have a girlfriend, I can't flirt with the others like Alexa, Siri and so on :)

Please implement volumio, there are many others who would like it just like me ;)

Hey @DJRuebe thanks for sharing your experience with us! Hahaha, I totally get your point!

Have you considered creating an idea for it in our ideas section (request a feature)?

Hi Newbie first post here,

Volmumio integration work around?

Ive recently started using Deezer over Spotify as I wanted to stream higher quality music to my powered speakers. I purchased Audiophonics Raspdac  mini and started using Volumio.

 I have realised that it is possible to stream via Volumio with Deezer. I use the Deezer app on my iPhone as a remote control (selection of music)and use the Volumio UI on my iPad to connect to the Raspdac mini.

Not all the meta data ( album art work) is shown but it doesn’t matter as everything is shown on the iPhone.

I guess the same would apply if using laptop etc and obviously both devices need to be on the same network.

Hope this helps and apologies if this is already apparent.

 It’s saved me from tying into a Tidal subscription as I much prefer Deezer.

Thanks a lot for sharing this with us @loony 

Number 1, it's great to have a workaround that enables other users to experience the same.

Number 2, this is the kind of feedback we need this year. We're focusing hard on connectivity because we know it's an area we need to improve a lot and fast. I'm unable to give you a lot of detail but we're developing a feature that will help with this - not just with Volumio. So hang in there, we'll need your feedback in a couple of months :relaxed:

Hello,

currently I am at Spotify and like others I use volumio to listen to music.  If deezer allows to use volumio in a simple way like Spotify allows, I will take a family subscription because I am interested in the HD quality that Spotify does not offer.  Do you know if this will be possible soon?  

Thank you in advance for your reply

Hey @Narmo 

That's lovely to hear you're considering joining us :thumbsup_tone2:

We don't currently have plans on Volumio but that can change very quickly. Subscribe to this topic so that I can update you once we've got a take from our developers about this :relaxed:

Hi, I would switch to deezer too if it is possible to use deezer on volumio.  At the moment I use spotify family ;-)

And that's another precious user added to the list @Tobis72 :relaxed: thank you for your feedback!

I have contacted Volumio support and they are saying that they would like to integrate asap with you but they do not have SDK access. You are saying that you would like to integrate with them but it is up to them. Please can someone start this topic with Volumio guys. We need Deezer on Volumio so much. You are best streaming service but you are heavily loosing market because of lack of integration. I and thousands like myself use more expensive and not so good Tidal

on Naim and Volumio just because you are not supported. Please pass this info to management.

Thanks a lot @ivan.jeremic 

We're currently in the process of updating our SDKs so it isn't the time to start a new partnership - but once it's done (this year) we'll be looking into exploring this possibility. You've got so many good points when it comes to userbase and we don't want to miss out - but there's room for improvement on our SDKs at the moment and we're currently making it better.

If you could add this link to Volumio's support in the meantime, that could be useful.

but once it's done

 

 

the thread from the Volumio board (with the request for Deezer support in Volumio) is from September 2017. We have been waiting for so long. Is there no way to accelerate the cooperation?

Not at this stage @Tobis72 

Like I mentioned above, in order to support this and other integrations, we're updating our SDKs this year. It's hard work and it'll take time, but that's the first step before we can say yes or no. There are equally or more exciting partnerships waiting for this too, like Roon, for example. So our devs have rolled their sleeves up and have started working on the foundation and on our player :thumbsup_tone2:
