Spotify users may finally be able to start using Siri commands to play music

Spotify users may finally be able to start using Siri commands to play music Over the past few months, there's been quite a bit of tension between Apple and Spotify. Not too long ago, for example, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek argued that Apple's 30% cut from the App Store amounts to an unfair tax on competition. What's more, Spotify has taken its complaints about Apple's App Store practices to the European Union where it has levied a range of antitrust claims against the Cupertino-based company. That dispute notwithstanding, the two companies appear to be making peace on another front.

The latest beta versions of Spotify include this support, and The Verge has been able to test playing songs via Siri on the latest iOS 13.1 update.

Siri simply responds with “I’m sorry, I can’t do that on your Apple Watch” when you try. We haven’t been able to test whether the HomePod now works with Spotify as a result, but it’s unlikely.

However, the two companies are reportedly discussing a plan to let iPhone users play Spotify songs, playlists and albums using Siri voice commands, according to The Information.

Spotify has added Siri support to the latest beta version of its iOS app, allowing users to ask Siri to play songs, albums, and playlists in Spotify using their iPhone on iOS 13 or later, as noted by The Verge.

However, the Spotify and Siri integration works well on Apple’s AirPods, allowing you to say “Hey Siri” and request albums, playlists, or songs to play on Spotify’s service. One thing that doesn’t work well is trying to play podcasts with Siri, as Spotify attempts to search for music instead of dedicated podcasts.

Spotify is currently testing this new functionality, and it will likely debut in the coming weeks in the main app. We got an early look at Spotify on the Apple Watch last year in beta, and the feature launched less than two weeks later.
