Hello @corydcartwright ,

Thanks for reaching out to the community!


Try this!

Go to Settings > Apps > Spotify > Permissions > microphone


Give Spotify access to microphone permissions and then force close Spotify, then use google assistant to play music.


Note - Make sure you're using Google assistant, exactly like shown in screenshot.

(You can access that by holding down the home button. )


Let me know if it worked! 



Hey, new s10e user here. The above worked for me! I have no idea why but opening the assistant specifically via the home button holding method seemed to reset assistant into a mildly different format and now it works. It works now even if I open it via "okay google." 


I was having the exact same problem as above where it would say "okay playing" then would just open the app and search what I asked for. 


Google assistant for me looked different prior to me opening assistant with the home button and was more of a news feed like scenario with news etc. Now it appears to show more of a diary and weather and options. I don't know how to explain it...


Anyway all fixed now!

Thank you!!

**bleep** this worked! I spent 2 hours on a chat with spotify tech support and got NO answers. I was ready to return my phone over this! I was so **bleep**. But I did the fix of holding the home button and it fixed my Google assistant now it plays my spotify. Thank you so much!!
