Play Any Playlist In Spotify With Tasker

8

I love listening to music and so I have quite some playlists in Spotify. Because I don’t want to put every playlist in Tasker separately, I’m using a variable like in my “Say hello to any person” tutorial that I created before.

For this tutorial, I will be using Tasker, Autovoice & Autoinput. If you don’t want to do it yourself, you can always directly download the Tasker profile below!

  • Step 1: Profiles => Event => Plugin => Autovoice => Recognized
  • Step 2: Command Filter => Play (?<playlists>.+) playlist => tick: Use Regex
  • Step 3: Add task: Launch App => Spotify
  • Step 4: Add task: Variable set => Name: %playlists => To: epic
  • Step 5: Add task: Autoinput Action => Manual Setup => Action: Click => Field Type: Text => Field Text => Your Library
  • Step 6: Add task: Autoinput Action => Manual Setup => Action: Click => Field Type: Text => Field Text => Playlists
  • Step 7: Add task: Autoinput Action => Manual Setup => Action: Click => Field Type: Text => Field Text => %playlists
  • Step 8: Add task: Wait => 3 seconds
  • Step 9:Add task: Autoinput Action => Manual Setup => Action: Click => Field Type: Id => Field Text => com.spotify.music:id/row_view

To make this work perfectly, make sure all your playlist titles in Spotify are in small letters so also no capital letter in the first letter.

Let us know if this worked out for you or drop a comment below and we will find the solution together.

  1. Is there a way to change google assistants response in the hard way? I tried not using the hard way and just entering the commands and responses but it didn’t work. Not sure if i’m doing something wrong here. I just hate how google announce the playlist. It’d be nice for it to say something regarding the playlist and then just start it. Also is there any way to make it so it auto shuffles so when I start the playlist it’s not the same song & then me having to tell google to shuffle the playlist?

  2. Instead of using: Step 9:Add task: Autoinput Action => Manual Setup => Action: Click => Field Type: Id => Field Text => com.spotify.music:id/row_view
    You can also use an Intent:
    Select the “System” category => Select “Send Intent => Set these fields: Action: com.spotify.mobile.android.ui.widget.PLAY => Cat: None => Package: com.spotify.music => Target: Broadcast Reciever
