Deezer Premium+ users can now listen to music through their Google Home smart speaker, while being able to control playback entirely through their voice. According the Deezer’s official blog, the feature is launching in France and Germany, with the UK, US, Canada and Australia coming soon. You can play your favorite playlists, artists, radios and audio contents through your smart speaker. Just start with “Ok Google”.
In addition to simple voice control, Deezer support on Google Home also comes with ‘Flow’, a feature which dynamically builds playlists based on your pre-existing music-listening habits. Simply ask your Google Home speaker to ‘Play my Flow’ and it will dynamically generate a playlist based on your existing listening preferences. You can also sculpt your Flow playlist through your Google Home by telling it which songs you do and don’t like.
There’s nothing more annoying than sitting down at a family meal, and realizing you forgot to add some music. With Google Home, you can say “Ok Google, play my Flow” and enjoy your meal together, at the same time and while it’s still warm.
Get home, kick off your shoes, crash-land onto your couch, and “Ok Google, play something relaxing”. There, you’ve saved enough time to go get that well-deserved glass of Prosecco out of the fridge. It’s called killing two birds with one stone.
If you don’t already have a Google Home speaker and are planning to get one, it’s currently available on discount for CDN $159 from Google Store Canada.
