New Sonos app - playing artist “top tracks” on Deezer

Hi,

After searching for an artist on Deezer, one of the options available is to play their “top tracks”. On the old S2 app this worked fine. I could search for the artist, select “top tracks” and then “play” or “shuffle play”.

On the new Sonos app, I can get to the artist “top tracks” on Deezer, but then it only appears to let me play one track at a time. I can play a track, but once that track is finished it won’t move on to the next one. It just stops playing anything.


Is this user error, bug, or planned feature? Can you advise how I can play an artist’s top tracks on Deezer please?

Thank you.

Have a look at ‘most recent reviews’ on the App Store. Almost every single one is a one star review saying what we have said. It’s like they want to ruin it.

Imagine a 1.2 star rating of 184000 reviews on play store. You would think these speakers were cheap. Far from it. Not sure what they're doing with all the money we gave them, but it's not going into making a better app.

I am still trying to understand the mindset behind the development of this new app.  Sonos had a great app and now they have the worst.  All those features we liked and used all the time are just gone.  

Finding an artist, going to the top tracks and playing the whole list is something people do all the time.  Crazy to think Sonos would break such a basic feature and not jump on it quickly to fix it!

At least for now, the PC app is still the old version and that functionality still works!  Just annoying that I can no longer use my tablet or phone anymore with this feature.

Same problem, that’s why I don’t use it anymore! We used to have it on all the time. Looking for a new system…

This is a major shortcoming in the app. This used to be a great feature and it is very annoying that one can no longer play all top tracks by an artist in Deezer without selecting each one in turn. 
come on Sonos, sort this out and restore the previous functionality. 

Another person here really sick of the new app and how poor it is.  When I click an artist top tracks why is there no function to play them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Such a simple thing rather than having to click on after another or select it as a favourite.

 

How have Sonos made so many mistakes with their new app?  They used to be the best out there and that's why I've stuck with them but over the last 2-3 years I've never had so many drop outs of groups, subs or individual speakers disconnecting whilst playing, phone or tablets not finding the system and now the terrible app 'upgrade' I'm seriously looking at other systems.

Yep... It's appalling and I genuinely hope they're reading all of these comments.
