Differentiating autohost and host on TMI for Web App

I currently use the TMI system (/hosts) to see what channel my channel is currently hosting. However, there is no flag to differentiate whether the current host is an auto-host or a manual host. This is somewhat important to the usage of this feature in my code. Would it be possible to add an “automatic” boolean to the returned data to differentiate between the automatic system and a manual host?

Or, is there another API I could call to check if the current host is manual or automatic?

The only way to see right now, is to be logged into chat as the broadcaster. And parse the incoming chat messages

A friend pointed me to this API on kraken: kraken/autohost/status
Requires my OAuth, but I got it to do what I needed to.
