[All Platforms][Playlists] Add songs to queue using smart assistant

Request: make any voice request for a song automatically inserted in the current queue - instead of leaving the current playlist and playing right away.

 

As many owners of Alexa or Google Home have discovered, it can be fun for you or guests to ask your smart speaker to play a song.

 

Unfortunately, what happens is Spotify will start playing the requested song - totally abandoning your carefully curated playlist. It's a pain to go back - and impossible to go back if you had shuffled the playlist.

 

A simple solution is to make any requested song, by default, get insterted into the queue (instead of automatically playing). If the intent is to truly change plalylists, then users can acheive that with additional voice commends.
