“With one simple request, Alexa users will now be able to listen to any album, artist and playlist through Deezer, making it easier than ever to enjoy the music they love.”
Users will be able to set Deezer as the preferred music streaming service under settings.
By saying “Alexa, play Flow,” Alexa will play a personal soundtrack that combines data and editorial recommendations to play a continuous stream of music tailored for the individual listener.
Voice commands can be used to search and play specific tracks, artists, albums and genres, as well as control volume, pause and skip songs.
Music for your mood recognizes over 18 different moods among 74 different genres.
