My Question or Issue

Hey,

when I ask my Google home speaker to play a german audiobook for kids (like Benjamin Blümchen or Bibi Blocksberg or Die drei ???), Spotify only plays the actually most popular title of the artist. 

 

I tried several ways of Talking to my Google assistant.

"Ok Google, spiel das Album "Der Bankräuber"
"Ok, Google, spiel das Album "Der Bankräuber" von Bibi Blocksberg"

"Ok, Google, Spiel das Album "Folge 4, der Bankräuber" von Bibi Blocksberg"
-> No success  😞

 

I have a German premium account and I'm able to find and play the albums in the mobile app.

 

I found a thread in the inofficial German Echo community and many people have the same issue. So I'm sure that's no Google or Alexa problem.

 

The only way to get it to work is to put the songs in a playlist.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dirk

Hi, do you still have the problem. After a few days of trial and error it works for me with:

"Spiele von Bibi Blocksberg das Album Folge 31" or "Spiele Offenbarung 23 Folge 68".

Tested with Bibi Blocksberg, Die drei ??? and Offenbarung 23.
