Spotify Play a specific song

My Question or Issue

Hey, so I'm building a smart Voice Assistant for myself (like Alexa or Google Home) and those assistants have the possibility to play and pause a playing song and to play a specific song with just the name of it (something like play this song or play that song). I was wondering if that was a contract with extended possibilities or something or if that is possible for an individual too? Idk if needed but I'm on a Desktop using Windows and my Virtual Assistant is programmed with NodeJS. Thanks in advance!

Hey there, thanks for joining the Spotify Community!

You should be able to use the Search endpoint in combination with the Start playback endpoint to play a specific track by name. Let me know if you have any questions!

Happy coding,
