I use Poweramp mostly in the car and it'd be great to have some voice commands - it's hard to scroll around to find specific artists/albums when driving as I have a big library and don't really want to crash into a tree and explode just because I was busy looking for some old Iggy Pop B-side. So in the interest of safety I just swipe through songs on shuffle or spend time creating a big playlist for long journeys. I can launch Poweramp with a Google voice command (e.g. by saying "OK Google, play Jimi Hendrix") but this only works for specific songs - asking for an artist or an album just plays one song and then follows it with the next alphabetical track from my full library. If this worked correctly it would be perfect, but I understand the problem may lie on Google's side, and they're not going to help (especially as they'd prefer people to use Play Music). If this is the case perhaps Poweramp could have it's own in-app voice controls? I imagine it's difficult to code so maybe there are other third-party voice recognition apps you could team up with. Either way, nice work on the app regardless, it's brilliant. -------------------- Update (in case anyone else comes here looking for the same thing): Today I found a third-party voice control app called KLets which integrates perfectly with Poweramp. The interface is poor and it's a bit buggy but it plays whichever artist, album or track you ask it to, unlike Google Now or another third-party app I tried called Utter. Apparently there's also a way to control Poweramp correctly through Google Now by using Autovoice to create new Tasker commands but I'm too lazy to go through all that. The main problem is that voice commands don't even work offline yet (even though they should, since the voice recognition technology itself does) so it's still not much use for driving unless you get great signal all the time. This article from last month seems to think it's coming very soon though, so I guess I'll be stuck on shuffle until then.
Hi, I would like to be able to say "OK Google play (artist)" and have it play the artist albums with tracks in order (album 1 tracks 1-10.. then album 2 tracks 1-10... then album 3 tracks 1-10) just by giving the one voice command. Now when I say "OK Google play (artist)" it will play the artist under the all songs directory. So it all depends on how the directory is sorted as to what will play next. If I sort all songs directory to artist then the songs will not be in order as they came on the album. Is there anyway to achieve this? Car Tunes App was capable of this but I had other issues with it. Thanks for any tips. I'm running V2 of power amp.
