Say you feel like listening to some good ‘ol Rock ‘n Roll music, you could say:
“Play Rock ‘n Roll” or “Play Led Zeppelin” or more specifically “Play Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd” – also notice I didn’t include the “by” before the band name, “Pink Floyd” .
You don’t need to include words like “artist” “album” or “singer” in the command as the app will know try figure it out.
Now that it’s playing, you realize you would rather it played though your
Smart TV & Surround Sound system, well all you need to do it press the corresponding icon and playback will now be playing from from Spotify on your Smart TV. All available devices you have signed in on Spotify will appear in Commandify.
To see what device is currently active, have a look at the list below the Devices title and the icon coloured green will indicate active. So all playback will be routed the device which is active. If none are green select one, as you will need to do this anyway before using the app.
The idea is for you to be able to control your Spotify account, devices and manage your library 100% by speech. Commandify also includes a sleek user interface for a more hands on approach in selecting media.
From Me, the Developer:
I would love to hear your suggestions and feature requests and try to include them in future updates.
The app is only a few months old and it’s just me working on it, therefore may still have an odd glitch I may have missed. Please consider leaving a comment or drop me an email and I will do my best to fix and get an update out, instead of a bad review.
Please note a Premium Spotify account is needed to use the most of the features included in this app.
