Voice search on Android doesn't play songs (Google Assistant AND Google Now)

From a few months ago, playing songs through google now or google assistant does not work.
You can say "play [Artist name] on Spotify" and it's going to play it, you can also say "play [Album name] on Spotify" and it's going to play it, but if you use "play [song name] on spotify" it's just going to open the Spotify app and stop there, it won't search for the song and play it like it used to.


As far as I can tell, Google Now/Assistant are sending correct intents to the Spotify app, but the app is not interpreting it correctly.

I am attaching the screenshot from the Google Now app as well.


I have confirmed the issue on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running Marshmallow, as well as Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4 and LG G5.


This might not seem like a big problem but it really is, inability to play songs without typing while driving, running or doing whatever is a real problem, and what makes it even worse is it was working without a problem in the past.

It's making me reconsider my music streaming service, and I am a premium user.


I'm available for any more information you may need.




Hey guys! 


It seems we didn't receive a reply. We're setting this as "Closed" in the meantime. 

Feel free to give us a shout if the issue persists.
Happy Holidays 🙂 

I want to be clear if this doesnt work with google assistant I will be cancelling my spotify 


Yeah, I have the same problem, Samsung galaxy A5 2017. Playing albums or artists work fine, but not artists. So its got to be on Spotify to fix it, not google


Same issue here, on google pixel 2 running Android 8.1 and Spotify version I ask assistant to play a song, it opens Spotify but on main home page, doesn't play song or show artist page. It was working fine a week ago. 


It still persists.. 


Comigo acontece o mesmo, porém não para por aí, as vezes quando pesso pra reproduzir uma música específica ele me responde dizendo que só é possível para assinantes do spotify, coisa que claramente eu sou.
