What do you say?
If you've updated your iPhone or iPad and installed the latest version of Spotify, you do not have to do anything special. Activate Siri as usual and enter a command like "Play NF on Spotify".
I could accomplish the same thing by saying "with Spotify" and "with Spotify". Siri once interrogated me and thought I said "Play NF Spotify" and it still worked. The key is to make sure Spotify is displayed at the end of the command, even though the official Spotify statement is "On Spotify." So if you have trouble getting commands to work, try saying so.
Spotify supports the following Siri commands:
- Play track / artist / album / station on Spotify
- Play a personal playlist on Spotify
- Play a personal curated playlist (eg Discover Weekly) on Spotify  Play some new releases on Spotify
- Play podcast on Spotify
