How do you use the Halo favourite button (1,2,3, or 4) for your Deezer favourite tracks?

I start the playing the favourite tracks via my IOS device and then I hold down the favourite button om my Halo.

However, it seems like it will only play the tracks in the playlist at the time when the button is pressed. It will not play tracks that are added to my favourite tracks afterwards.

Am I doing something wrong?

Odd, haven’t actually noticed as my play list is 200+ songs(got a bit gready Stick out tongue) so i wouldn’t know if that happens to me too. I can see if i can try it if i have some time, sounds strange for sure

Thanks I will also run another experiment when time allows.

I am actually enjoying the Deezer flow playlist. It seems like I can not activate/play Deezer flow from the Deezer IOS app and not from the Halo or the B&O IOS app. Is this correct or am I doing something wrong?

My understanding is that "flow" is only available in the Deezer app.  This is a shame because that is my favorite feature of Deezer. Having to use the app makes it no better than Spotify so I use Spotify.

Correct, so is the album true gapless playback. B&O would benefit from integrating these features in their products that have the Deezer service.

I agree, I use “flow” from the app directly when driving etc etc. I prefer using network link at home.

I have tried it again with same result. When allocating a Halo favourite button to a Deezer playlist it will only play the tracks that were in the playlist the time the favourite-button was long-pressed. 
I am constantly adding new tracks to my playlist meaning I see no reason for using a favourite button for a Deezer playlist.

I will use the 4 favourite buttons for TuneIn stations instead and I will need to use my IOS device when I want to play Deezer playlists (bummer)
I hope it will be fixed in an update.

How are you and others using the Halo for Deezer? Are you using the favourite buttons?

Does it work better with Spotify - I have heard Spotify Hifi will be announced later this year

I have now tried to allocate a Halo favourite button to a simple playlist with 3 songs only.

Afterwards I have added 3 additional songs.

However, my music system will only cycle though the 3 first songs when I press the Halo favourite button. I have tried to restart the app, put my music system in standby for while, etc. but nothings helps.

Am I doing something wrong?
