Start spotify on google speaker ( making it the source )

Hi folks,
I see alot of people complaining about the spotify integration. Mainly for the dissapearing devices. Indeed the spotify api only returns devices if are turned on and playing.

But there has to be a workaround to start playing on the google speaker ( without another source like headless player ) since you can vocally start spotify on the google home and acts like a source.

Is there a way to give google home commands via home assistant ? ( and not vocally )

Thank you :slight_smile:
