    On my 830 running 8.1 I could say "play my top rated" and it would automatically play my playlist. Now I only get a web search.

    Noticed that even "play all music" is down for me... Works fine on desktop tho

    All I get on my 920 is Cortana saying "resuming" and showing me the volume bar, but it ultimately just crashes..

    Might need an update

    Edit: Please provide this feedback in the feedback app lol

    I'm using a 950xl, not the 830 anymore. Can I download the feedback app from the store?

    Oh congrats on the new phone :) The feedback app is strictly a w10 insider thing (afaik) and there isn't any w10m insider support for the 950 series so, no you probably won't be able to download it..

    That's incorrect.

    The feedback app is built into the 950.

    Press the volume down & power buttons, but release before it resets. Feedback will then open.

    Thanks for the correction tangledw :) thought it wouldn't be there because of the current lack of support

    Ok I left the feedback. MS needs to consolidate some of the issues there as they are redundant. I can't find the issue I posted though.

    you can filter all feedback.. just set to "my feedback" and you'll find yours.

    before posting a suggestion/issue it's probably best to search for similar issues and upvote those. I do think that they have a system in place which just counts the similar posts and notifies them.

    I tested using "Play <artist>" as well as "Play <playlist name>" on my 950 and it worked just fine.

    That's so weird. FWIW, my playlists were generated but iTunes (some are smart playlists like "mytoprated"). I winder if I create them in the phone or in groove they will work.

    I hope this gets fixed in the near future. I really loved that feature with my bluetooth headset.

    "Shuffle" works now, so that's great, since that all I ever use, however it's really slow. It needs like 5-10 seconds (on a 1520).
    "Play *artist*" and "Play *song*" do not work for me.

    Is your music on the phone or SD card? It doesn't work on my 950xl with music on my sd card. Tried on original firmware and the new preview.

    Thanks This helped me figure out that Cortana isn't looking at the SD card for music when you tell here to play an artist song or album...
    I'm on the Lumia 950 XL

    Cortana wouldn't play my local music by name from the SD card. I moved it all to built-in storage. It made no difference. Cortana would only recognize streaming music. However I'm pleased to report this is now fixed with the Groove 3.6.1573.0 update, Cortana is now aware of music in built-in storage. Hopefully it works for SD storage too.

    No luck for me, it still does a Bing search when I say "play (playlist)". It won't even play an artist or album specify. So far it can only resume, skip, and play previous.

    Cortana commands now work with music stored on the phone but not on SD card. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.

    Thanks for the info guys! I couldn't figure out why it worked before, but not now. The SD card situation applies to me. I moved a song over to phone storage and Cortana found it. Hopefully MS will fix this soon, because I use SD storage for almost everything.

    Please anyone having this issue leave it in the feedback app to make MS aware of the problem. For 950/XL users hold down the power and volume down button simultaneously for 1 second to launch it. All other phones on W10 download the feedback app from the store!

    It's a great feature when you are driving and can play your favorite playlist without picking up your phone and navigating through groove. Even working out with Bluetooth headphones makes this very functional.

    Your day will come. One day, a few of my coworkers were arguing about the tune of the Mortal Kombat theme song. I realized I had that song on my phone and I gave it a shot: "Hey Cortana. Play Mortal Kombat." She instantly pulled it up, and it felt pretty good showing off to my coworkers. B-)
