It will also include direct access to Flow, a personal soundtrack that combines smart data and editorial recommendations to play a continuous stream of music specifically tailored for the individual listener.

“We’re very excited to launch Deezer with Alexa in 66 countries and across a wide range of Alexa supported devices. Voice activation is on the rise, with a growing role in home listening and Deezer is proud to take centre stage in this evolution. 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,” says Deezer vice president of hardware partnerships Riad Hawa.
