[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!

Maybe voice search also.

This would also be nice on desktop (current W10 app) through Cortana so that I can for example control volume, skip songs, etc. while I am playing games.

more specificly, intigration with common voice assistants à la Siri, Cortana (for PC's at least :), and whatever Android has.

+1 needs voice search first though. Moderators have tried to combine several other voice search ideas into this one but I don't see it in the description here.

Yes! including "add to playlist"

So this good idea was in 2014. We're almost 4 years later now. What's the status?

At some point, I swear there used to be at least a voice command option for searching. Now that it's gone, it is such a disadvantage when driving in the car and wanting to quickly pull up a song, and safely. This is a drag to not least be able to search by voice. Please, please bring this back.

However PLEASE make voice control the main priority - larger buttons will only encourage people to keep their heads down.

This isn't so much a cool feature, its more an ethical safety feature. More people are apt to change their music on spotify than text, which is now a leading cause of fatalities on the road. If you add this feature, it should include more than just pause and play, but artist, album, and song queries.

That would make so much sense! Plus it good business for both parties haha
