Spotify is finally getting Siri support with iOS 13

  Spotify is finally getting Siri support with iOS 13 Spotify is testing this new beta featureWhile this new feature lets you request Spotify songs with Siri on an iPhone, it does not currently work on an Apple Watch as Apple’s wearable doesn’t have a dedicated Spotify app. Instead, it’s simply a controller for playing songs on other Spotify-enabled devices. 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.

Deezer wants to remind you that Spotify isn't the only streaming service to include podcasts. It's rolling out a "Shows" tab on iOS (Android and the web are coming later) that's dedicated to podcasts, radio shows and other non-music material. It divides audio into 15 top-level categories like comedy, education and fiction, and you can dive into sub-categories for more specific topics like parenthood. You'll also find podcast recommendations, and you can add any material to your personal library whether or not you're a paying Deezer subscriber.

The feature is currently available in the US, UK and eight other countries. This probably won't have you rethinking your use of Spotify (or Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts). It doesn't have to, however. This appears to be aimed more at existing Deezer users who want to discover new podcasts and listen without splitting their attention between multiple apps.

App Store

You can now tell Alexa to play podcasts on Spotify and Apple's app .
Pause a podcast on your phone, then pick it up on your Echo speaker.Playing podcasts via either service works pretty much the same way. You'll be able to use voice commands like "Alexa , play The Joe Budden Podcast on Spotify ," or "Alexa, play The Daily from yesterday on Apple Podcasts." You can also tell Alexa to do things like fast forward or play the next episode via both apps.
