Hey, so this is really a bug report. There is not a solution, I’ve tried plenty of things to get this to work, I just want to make sure the devs know about this.

If you shuffle a deezer playlist using alexa it will play 2 or 3 songs shuffled, and then the playlist will end.

This happens if I use “alexa, shuffle playlist xyz” or “alexa, play playlist xyz shuffle mode” to start it playing and shuffle it right away, and it happens if i play the playlist and then just do an “alexa, shuffle” once it has begun playing.

I think they need to take a look at the alexa deezer skill.

Hey there @mdhen

We were able to reproduce thanks to our SU @GropplerZorn! 😘🙏🏽

He tried different playlists, sometimes it plays only a couple of songs, like you said, 

sometimes it plays more (100% Tina Turner kept going). 

Anyways it is unpredictable and an error, I have reported it internally!

Thank you for reporting it here 😃

Hey @mdhen, with these commands it should work properly: 

“Alexa play (playlist name)” 

“Alexa shuffle”

Let me know!

No effect for me. The problem still persists
