    Deezer Smart Radio - what's your experience?

    After a long time of not using Deezer, I'm currently playing with it again. I created a few "Smart Mixes". I pretty soon felt like this wasn't smart at all. Lots of repetition etc. What is your experience?

    That's the results of the past few hours playing a "Peter Gabriel" mix. Yes, PG is hardly present on the streaming services. But that's really very, very repetitive, not only PG's tracks.

    I have about the same experience as you. Pretty much useless imo.

    Looks really bad. I hardly ever use the Smart Radio, but i'll will try it and see if it's really that useless. btw: Is there a way to skip a track in the Deezer Smart Radio. It always says: "Deezer Error, Skip limit exceeded, you may skip again later."

    I wonder whether the radio API we're using simply has been neglected for
    the past years, since they now have the "Flow" feature - which is not
    available through their API...

    I tried the Deezer Smart Radio for the last three hours and had not a single repition. Do you really have a full Deezer acount or is this a the free version?

    I thought it might be a problem with Peter Gabriel. I tried the Gabriel Smart Radio and heard no track twice so far....

    I tried Deezer's Peter Gabriel Smart Radio again and it really looks fine (except that Peter Gabriel's tracks are missing, but, as you said, PG is hardly present at streaming). Don't know what went wrong with you're Smart Mix, but your experience is definitely not the standard with Deezer.

    No repetition at least.

    OK you've convinced me to give it another try.

    Hmm.... thans for the testing. My account indeed has expired. So I'm no
    longer a premium user. But it's my understanding that the Smart Radio
    would be the one useful feature to users of the free account. I'll check
    with my Deezer contacts. Thanks again!
