[Google Nest Hub] Cannot shuffle playlist alarm

[Google Nest Hub] Cannot shuffle playlist alarm







(Google Nest Hub)


My Question or Issue


You can set Nest Hub to play a Spotify playlist as a wake up alarm.  However you can not request that it plays shuffled and it ignores if it set to play shuffled on other devices.  Also if you ask nest to play a playlist outside of an alarm it will not play shuffled by default.  You have to say shuffle [Playlist Name] Playlist.  However If I say "Set alarm shuffle [Playlist Name] Playlist" or many other similar combination it does not work.


Does Spotify have enough control over its assistant API to make it so playlist play shuffled by default if setup on other device in shuffle play.  Alternatively pressure google to support an utterance that makes me be able to use the service I pay you for to wake me up as expected in the morning.  If you hear the same song every morning it becomes very easy to sleep though it.
