What would be the user advantages? In other words, when you say "more instant answers for users", what instant answers specifically?

This might have to be broken up into separate IA ideas rather than just one.

This is a great idea, but after a quick check it looks like the Deezer API requires the use of OAuth which our Instant Answers don't currently support. For now we'll have to wait on this.

Thanks again for the awesome suggestion!

Sorry, it looks like I'm actually wrong. Their docs aren't very clear...

It seems most API endpoints are accessible without authentication:

Most importantly, the search endpoint seems to work without OAuth:

Looks like there may be some use for this API!

FYI, Music data and potentially music streaming is on our radar and we're actively looking for a good provider/partner.
