[Amazon Echo] Enable saving songs to playlists via Alexa voice commands

Amazon Alexa is installed in millions upon millions of homes worldwide.  And yet, the functionality available for it is sorely lacking compared to its implementation on Google Home and other "smart" speakers.  Here's one example.

 

Currently, it doesn't seem possible to save music to playlists via voice commands on Alexa.  With Google, you can just say "Add this song to my music" and it'll immediately save it to your linked Spotify account.

 

So can you add a simple voice command to your Alexa skill that will allow this?  At the moment, users are having to rely on third party skills instead, such as:

 

Song Keeper - https://www.amazon.co.uk/CAct-Song-Keeper-for-Spotify/dp/B079F69G67

 

Playlist Helper - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Civica-Playlist-Helper/dp/B08D6PM1YM/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=playlist+...
