So it’s been 4 months since I posted on this thread, and yet the playlist or shuffle feature on Alexa has not been implemented. Out of interest, is it actually a difficult task?

Deezer needs to do something soon before it loses out to the competition, ie Amazon Music or Spotify.


Hi there, we are passing the feedback on to the right team, but Alexa features can only be implemented by Alexa... We are working with Amazon (Alexa) on new implements, but it's not something we can quickly change from our side. Sorry that's taking longer than you expected. 😉

I'm a premium Deezer user and shuffle works great! Only the user-created playlists don't work! As I have a lot of these playlists I would like to play them by using an Alexa voice command ....

Hi again, I know you had to be very patient, but we have been working on that specifically. I can't give you an ETA just yet, but I hope I can share more details very soon. Bear with me while I try to get more details 🙂
Hi, I've tried everything I can think of to link my Deezer to my Akexa Echo. I have skilled Deezer and made it my default on Akexa but still Akexa says that Deezer does not allow streaming on this device. I just don't know what I am doing wrong. I've googled the issue and nothing so far has come up that I haven't already done.
If someone can help, I would be delighted. 😊

Are you following the step shown on the top of this topic? 🙂
Hi,

I have followed all the procedures to install Deezer skill to Echo and my account is now linked to Alexa. Deezer was set as default music provider under settings. The issue here is that under Music and Books I cannot find Deezer and when I ask Alexa to search music on Deezer she is always telling my region is not supported. My address is in Canada and my Amazon account has my Canada address.

What can I do to get Deezer to work?

HI @michelsphair that is strange. This must have something to do with your Amazon account, there is no other explanation for this. Have you tried to contact Amazon about this?

Hi. Another 5 months down the line, are there any updates on this? I have cancelled my subscription to Deezer until this has been confirmed as implemented.
any updates?

Hi there @patrick.piening

Unlink your Deezer account, update your Alexa app and try to login again. You're right, you're Premium and should be able to use this - double check your email address.
@Rudi anything you can add about the shuffle issue?

Hey, mate. What shuffle issue are you referring to?
Hey @Rudi , the inability to turn on shuffle whilst listening to individual playlists on Amazon Echo.

crossfade and personal playlists have been mentioned before - and hopefully will be implemented soon. However:

  1. What about marking a song as favourite? Is this already implemented or will it in the near future?
  2. And the Alexa web app shows under currently playing thumbs up and thumbs down icons - at least for flow palylists. Can these be addressed to Alexa directly or only manually via the app?
"soon" has been around a year now!
So, is what is the command to play my Deezer Playlists on Echo ? I’ve been following this thread for a year... keep reading “soon” but seeing no results. Gives a really bad impression of Deezer and Amazon.

Hey there @clearprop

I've managed to test it here and couldn't shuffle it either - I've passed it on to our devs and will let you know once I get an update.
Please devs / get personal playlists working with the Alexa skill / API.

There’s now Apple Music and Amazon and Spotify that can all manage this and is an essential part for users who are using these smart devices - I get discovery is important but Music is personal.

Hi there @brookers

You should now be able to play personal playlists within the skill. Please update your Alexa and app and let me know!
