I'd love to be able to use my Echo as an action as opposed to just a trigger. For example, I'd love to send a text, enter a location, or reach a certain time of the day and have the Echo start playing music through Spotify.
So far, the only workaround is to download a sketchy iOS alarm clock app, have it play a pre-recorded sound file of an Alexa command. That seems like a crazy solution. I'm sure the smart folks at Stringify can figure this out. I actually downloaded the developer module to try and build my own trigger/action, but I know nothing of JS. I know that Spotify can run as a web-based player, from this article: https://www.npmjs.com/package/spotify-control
Perhaps that's the start to the solution?
