I'm looking to move from Amazon Music Unlimited to Deezer as Deezer appears to be the only streaming service that integrates into the Virtual DJ software that I use. I see that Deezer has an Alexa skill. I would rather go for Deezer Hifi than Premium but am mindful that the vast majority of my music streaming requests are made by voice to Alexa via my Sonos Ones and Beam. I have two questions:
1) Will I get FLAC quality when requesting Deezer streams via Alexa or is it only through using the SONOS app?
2) When Google assistant is available via SONOS Ones and Beam will I be able to request FLAC quality Deezer streams using this?

FLAC is only through the Sonos app. Deezer HiFi streams started via Alexa -- whether using the Sonos skill or the Deezer skill -- come through as MP3 320kbps. See here.
We don't know for sure, but this article suggests FLAC might be available.
