How is this not basic functionality yet?

Please add this, it's my favourite way to listen and having to dive into the app for it is painful.

Is there any explanation why it isn't a basic functionality?

Just that it’s not support at this time. It’s absolutely ridiculous that you can’t even use the syntax “play things like ‘x artist’” and it just plays similar music.  I’ll be checking out different services when my subscription is up, that’s for certain (I’m in Canada so I’m limited)

Add one more (mostly likely pointless) voice to this list.

 

It's rather mind blowing that this simple piece of functionality STILL isn't available on Echo devices in 2018.  Either the Spotify developers don't care about adding this feature or there's some stupid backroom deal in place between Pandora and Amazon giving Pandora an exclusive right to the 'radio' concept on Echo devices.

This is a very basic feature of Spotify...am baffled that it doesn't work with Alexa integration.

As I want to voice command my echo device and not grab my smartphone to play on echo, would be useful
