Virtual assistant applications support various commands related to music playback, such as playing specific songs, skipping songs, changing volume, etc. Although the available music-related commands cover operations that provide basic playback control, the commands do not cover personalized music-related operations for individual users, e.g., interpreted based on the user’s current or historical context and relevant data. This disclosure describes techniques that enable users to provide music playback related commands to a virtual assistant that are interpreted in a personalized manner such that the user experience of music playback and of the use of the virtual assistant is enhanced. For example, the user can provide complex commands that incorporate contextual information, without necessarily identifying individual content items, and the virtual assistant can determine matching content automatically.
