Using Siri to Play Spotify Music (All the Commands You Need to Know) «iOS & iPhone :: Gadget Hacks



Finally Spotify works with Siri! It took a long time, but since Spotify Music 8.5.6 for iOS 13, you can get Siri or Hey Siri on your iPhone to play and control music in your Spotify account. But which commands can you use? We've made a list of everything that Siri should now do in Spotify. Over time, the list may become even more powerful.

Unfortunately, most of the following commands work in Spotify Premium If you have a Spotify Free account and run many of the Siri requests listed below, only one Spotify recommended song will be launched. So, if you've been waiting for Siri to support you, it's time to sign up for a Spotify subscription.

The following Siri commands work not only on iOS 1

3, but also on iPadOS 13 for iPad, CarPlay, AirPods and HomePod via AirPlay too.

The first time you try to use a Spotify Siri command, Siri asks you to grant it access to your Spotify data. So be sure to press "Yes" or say. You can also find the option in the Settings app under "Use with Ask Siri" under "Settings" -> "Spotify" -> "Siri & Search" or under "Settings" -> "Siri & Search" -> "Spotify ".
