[Android][Your Library] More precise google assistant commands

Status: Case Closed

Google Assistant commands are not very useful if it never plays your music. "Play <song> on spotify" never plays something from my library. This is also annoying when there are several recordings of the same piece by different performers. 

 

To improve google assistant I recommend adding this command:

"Play <song> from my library" this will then search only your library/downloaded music and play the closest match. 

 

Another command:

"Play <song> preformed by <artist>" For example play "Sibelius's second symphony" preformed by "Berlin Phil" this can be implemented for general search, but could also be combined with my other suggestion.

Hey, all!

 

A little backfround to my issue. I primarily use Spotify with my google assistant and lately when I tell it to "play daily mix 1" it will instead play an album titled "Daily Mix" made in 2021 including songs by Vexento, Alex Skrindo, and others with another perplexing copyright notice under the name "Outertone." Regardless, I'm not a fan of this music and I really don't like that all the different ways of telling google to play the daily mix one playlist lead me back to this album. I've tried using the "Don't Play This" feature, but the problem persists.

 

My suggesstion to fix this problem would be to either tweak the Spotify API that google uses such that it will first check if a song/artist has been blocked by the user before attempting to play it, and if it has been blocked, goes to the next option, OR prohibit artists to use certain keywords when titling songs or ablums, and dedicate phrases like "Daily Mix" to spotify and personal playlists only. Kinda like reserved words in programming languages

 

I see the artists I mentioned on other albums titled with common keywords that spotify already uses for all accounts such as "Discover Weekly" which makes me inclined to think that the person making these is trying to be clever in their naming in order to maximize their revanue, kinda like spotify farmers. Preventing the use of certain keywords would certainly reduce the need for moderation

 

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

My spotify is linked to my smart devices, and when I ask the smart device to play a specific song, it almost always plays a remix version of the song. How could this be changed to play the original (un-remixed) version of the song?
