Assistant doesn't recognize MMA as a music player

Post by flamingchemist »

I'm trying to set MediaMonkey as the default music app on my new (Pixel 3) android phone, but I can't figure out how. It isn't listed under
  • Settings > Google > Search, Assistant and Voice > Google Assistant > Services > Music
  • Settings > Apps and Notifications > MediaMonkey
  • MediaMonkey > Options
  • Settings > Apps and Notifications > Advanced > Default Apps doesn't actually seem to have a music setting at all.
If I open the assistant and say "open MediaMonkey", it does open the app. If I say "play [song name] with MediaMonkey" it searches Google Play Music for "[song name] with mediamonkey". If I say "play music" it asks me to choose from a list of apps which does not include MMA.

I can't find anything saying support has been removed. I'm out of ideas and search engine results.

Hi,
MediaMonkey didn't get/passed Google Assistant testing, we are investigating better integration and only recently Google published custom triggers for external apps. I have same issue on Nexus Player where MediaMonkey do not get recognized as MediaPlayer, but if MMA is open then basic voice commands work.

On samsung devices this actually works perfect with the for some much hated Bixby... Dont know why, but it does respond to "start mediamonkey" etc....

Hi,
Try "OK Google -> Open MediaMonkey Application"? It usually work for me.
