Music service Deezer has become the first music streaming service to integrate with IFTTT (If This Then That). If you’re like me and love to automate your life, you’ll already be using the service extensively to take care of repetitive tasks and now music can be part of that mix.
Now that Deezer is integrated into IFTTT, users can perform actions in their Deezer app to trigger a response from another app also integrated on the web service. With a vast array of third party partners already connected with IFTTT, there are a number of “recipes” users can now set up to make their Deezer experience even more connected and personalised.
Recommended “recipes” currently include the following, but you can get creative and of course share your recipes with others.
- If I favourite a track on Deezer, then share it automatically via my Facebook page or Twitter feed
- If I add an album to my Deezer favourites, then automatically set its art cover as the wallpaper on my device
- If I’m listening to a track on Deezer, then set my Philips hue lights to match the album/single cover colours of the song
- If I tweet a track and artist using a specific hashtag from my twitter account, then add that track to my chosen playlist on Deezer
Hopefully this is the first of many streaming music services to join the service, as it also just just added Microsoft Office 365 as well, to add to a bunch of lighting and home automation services.
