Google Assistant does not automatically play songs any more

Google now/ assistant does not work like it used to, and hasn't for quite a while.

For example, saying "Play Imagine Dragons" will open Spotify to the imagine dragons band page, but not start playing any of the songs. This is the same for playlists; it will search for the playlist, but not start playing it. You have to then click play for it to do anything, which makes it pointless as a hands free voice command.

 

Will this feature be added back in to Spotify?

 

Note, if you give a song and artist it will start playing automatically
