[Mobile] Voice Control

Think it would be a great help to introduce a voice control for the app version.

Doesn't really need to be anything too extravagant just commands like 'Skip Track' or 'Pause/Play' etc.


Would be really useful on car journey's for instance!

Marked as new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search. 😉
This idea is a re-post of this inactive idea.


I would love to have this as a feature


PLEASE add this.. Every music app should by default have this nowadays! (Thanks for the music though Spotify!)


You can do some of this with Google Now for Android.  However, it's very basic.  Just specific songs and bands.  It would be great to enable playlists over this as well, along with basics like "Shuffle".  Apple Music has this over Siri and it's great. 




yes, this would really be useful, please add a system for choosing playlists.

it could be specific numbers for the lists you want to be able to coos when you are riding your bike or driveing your car.


I'm an app developer and I just released an app that integrates voice commands for Spotify! It's free and can be downloaded at


I plan on updating it with more features in the future, but right now it allows you to play songs, artists, playlists, and albums by just speaking to the app! 



+1 here. 


Also on Android TV: no voice search!


Voice command is a must.  Without this I have to maintain Iphone music and I listen more when I'm driving than not.

This is a great idea. I was actually a little suprised to see there is almost no info on this topic on google. I must confess I often change music while driving but this is little dangerous to do (just now in England driver killed few people and was sentenced for 10 years -> reason ? Changing music while driving. )


Voice control would be amazing!!!
