    What is the voice command to play a specific song?

    Thanks!

    That doesn't work.


    I tried "Play Intro"- I have a lot of songs called Intro, so I figured it'd play the first one.

    Instead, it played "Ultimate Satisfaction" by Ludacris.

    I don't believe you can as I never see anything in the commands it pops up mentioning song titles.

    I really wanted to be able to select a specific song to play also. The absence of this feature is disappointing. The only workaround I can think of is to find a script that can create a separate playlist for each song in your library - then play the song by stating the name of the playlist.

    But then it would just repeat that playlist over and over, that would be annoying. I don't know why Apple didn't include this feature. The only thing I can think of is that it would be too hard for voice control to find a specific song among potentially thousands. Some people have thousands of artists too, so I still don't really get it.
