Windows 10 Cortana and Spotify

We Windows 10 Cortana and music lovers were sadden when the death of Groove Music from Cortana was announced, because this death meant that we no longer have a war of using Cortana to control our music exploit.
Well, there are better news.

I recently learnt that starting from the Windows 10 Creators update, Cortana received an upgrade that will enable it's users connect Spotify to it and again use this wonderful digital assistant -Cortana- to control sounds.

With this upgrade to Cortana, you can connect your Spotify account to it whether the account is free or premium. Once connected, you can use Cortana to explore Spotify music even from your PC lock screen. Great right?

After you have connected your Spotify account to Cortana, below are queries I got from reddit that you can use to rock your favorite song.
  • Hey Cortana, play my discover weekly on Spotify
  • Play dance music on Spotify
  • Play <Artist/Track/Title/Genre/Mood> on <AppName>
  • Play some Drake
  • Play focus music
  • Play rock music
  • Play my tracks
  • Hey Cortana, what’s playing?
The bad news about this upgrade is that, this feature is officially only available to Windows 10 English language users who are residing in the US. But this does not mean you can rock this feature.

Just change your region to US and your language to English from your Windows 10 settings and you might as well be allowed to rock it!!!

Connecting Your Spotify Account To Cortana
  • From the Cortana interface, click on the notebook icon which is on the left section.
  • Scroll down to the Music section and Spotify.
