“I tried installing the deezer app on my Firestick 4 and it finds the app in the store but then I click on it, I get the error message App not found”, did you encounter the same issue? Well, the truth is that Deezer stopped supporting Fire TV and Fire TV Stick many months ago. So you can’t install Deezer app on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick. Luckily there are still 2 alternatives to listen to Deezer music on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.

Option 1 Play Deezer on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick with Alexa?

To enjoy Deezer on Amazon Alexa, simply say, “Alexa, play music on Deezer.” This grants you access to a vast collection of over 90 million tracks, all at your command. For a personalized experience, try saying, “Alexa, play my Flow.” Flow creates a unique and continuous stream of songs tailored to your preferences, blending current hits, new releases, and your all-time favorites. To get started, make sure to enable the Deezer skill and link your Deezer account in the Alexa app.

You can also link Alexa to your Deezer Free account! Note: this service is still in development and some features may not yet be available. Deezer Free users are able to play their Flow, shuffle Public Playlists and Albums, as well as enjoy Artist and Genre mixes. Free tier users will receive ads and are limited to 6 skips per hour. To request specific tracks and enjoy the full features of Deezer on Alexa you will need a Deezer Premium account.

Option 2 Play Deezer on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick with VLC or Plex

What is Plex?

Plex is a client-server media tool that lets you access all your centrally stored media through various external devices. With Plex, you can set up a media server on your computer. This server allows you to access all your media files, such as videos, music, and pictures, stored on your computer’s hard drive. To access this media, you can use client apps on external devices like FireStick, mobiles, tablets, TV boxes, and computers. For FireStick, you can find the Plex app on the Amazon Store. The beauty of Plex is that your computer (the server) and your devices (the clients) don’t have to be connected to the same wireless network. You can leave your computer at home and still enjoy the music stored on its hard drive by playing it on your mobile device, even when you’re at your friend’s house.
