My Question or Issue

All Spotify voice commands work except for those that pause. I'm using Google Assistant on my phone and have quadruple checked my Spotify permissions and settings as well as my Google Assistant permissions and settings.

Hi there @GurraAgnell,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community about this. 

 

This does seem odd and we'd like to investigate this further.

 

First we suggest that unlink your account with your Spotify account and then relink it in the Google Home app.

 

If that doesn't do the trick, can you perform a clean reinstall of the app? This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

 

Take care!

I have a brand new Samsung S22 with fresh install of everything and the google assistant "Pause" voice command is the only thing I have not been able to get working since I set it up just last week. I tried unlinking my Spotify acc and redoing it. I tried reinstalling the Google app. I have reinstlaled the Spotify app. If I switch the default music player to Youtube Music or another app all commands work fine. If I use the "Hey Spotify" function, it also works fine.

 

Also, this only occurs if the music is playing from the phone. If the music is playing on another device (my pc), the pause function works fine. It still will not pause while playing on the phone using Google Assistant voice commands.

Hey @mb9023,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community.

 

We appreciate the time you took sharing the troubleshooting steps you've tried so far. As the issue is happening in your mobile device, we’ll need more info to investigate it further.

 

Would you mind including in your next response the Spotify version and the OS version you're currently running in your Samsung?

 

If possible, could you include as well a short video where we can see what happens when you use the “Pause” command? You can attach it by using the Insert Video option in the post editor.

 

Keep us updated.

Hey there @DeadToTheGoodLife,

 

Thanks for the post.


Can you let us know when did this start happening and what troubleshooting you've done so far?

 

A short video recording of the issue would also be helpful, to illustrate exactly what's happening.

 

Cheers.

I am having the same problem, whenever i want to pause music my assistant says ok or alright ect. But the music keeps playing. Strangely enough whenever i type the same command it does work. I have done clean reinstalls and restarted my phone as well.

Would you mind leting us know the exact make/model, operating system and Spotify version of your device?


On another note, could you send us a video of the issue happening so that we can have a look directly from your end? You can attach it to your next response by using the Insert Video option in the post editor. You can also upload it to Google Drive and share the link with us (make sure the video has the permissions for anyone to see it).


We'll be on the lookout.
