bixby and default music app

JUMP TO SOLUTION
 i bought a note 8
when i ask "play song x" (which i have on my phone)

 

bixby prompts me to install google play music (which i removed because its cancer)

 

when i go to default apps i cannot change the default music player on a device i own (this is anti consumer)

 

when i go to bixby commands i cannot change the commands from google play to samsung music.

 

when i caved and installed google play music

bixby opens google play music and then tells me i need to subscribe (pay money) to play a song i own AND HAVE ON THE DEVICE.

why would i pay a subscription to use a feature that has worked fine since the note 4, 

 

 

your greed is absolutely astounding. i have lost features i highly value by upgrading hardware.

i am massively disappointed and i am considering returning the device.

@mOVING_tARGET Google Play Music is pretty good. I used Spotify before. But @userbcMKA9DSlI is correct, any app that you want to use (right now) that isn't the Bixby default must be specifically stated. Hopefully soon, we will be able to choose prefered apps.

in order for you to use samsung music, the command has to be "open samsung music and ...."

i mean if they let me install s voice it wouldnt be a problem

why throw out your code base just to slap a new name on something just for marketing points

 

also your statement that its broken so just accept it, isnt a solution and i dont appreciate you marking it "solved"

@mOVING_tARGET how it broken though? "Play The Beatles on Spotify" works great. You want the ability to just say "Play The Beatles" and it open to play on your default music app, I get that. Bixby is still very young. In the future, I'm sure Bixby will get to an even better place. Right now, there is no "fix".

"Play Beatles on spotify" does not actually work.

Create a custom command, i.e "Play Music" Line 1: Open Samsung Music Line 2: Touch play

also you can go into all possible music players and see which permission is set for default ubtil one says clear defaults then you can trick bixby. ive done it once

If you make your own command and then have Bixby open spotify first, then play music after it plays music from spotify
