Here’s great news for Apple users, the day is here finally where you can control Spotify on your iPhone or iPad using Siri. All you need to do is to get your hands on the newly released Spotify update and you’re good to go. You can then ask Siri to play music or podcasts by adding “on Spotify” to the end of your command.
It works on iPhone and iPad, and when using Siri with AirPods connected to those devices. It does not work natively on HomePod (you can’t install Spotify or any other app on HomePod); you have to use AirPlay, just as you’ve always been able to. To utilize the new feature, users must say “Hey Siri, play *insert name* on Spotify.”
For example: “Hey Siri, play Billie Eilish on Spotify” or “Hey Siri, play Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness on Spotify.” Siri's support for Spotify is available for iPhone, iPad, Carplay, AirPods, and HomePod via Airplay. Spotify also disclosed that a new Spotify app will be available on Apple TV.
As per the reports, the update comes seven months after Spotify filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission (EC), the executive brand of the European Union, in March 2019. One of those complaints included Siri’s limited functionality with non-Apple apps such as Spotify, and in turn, was favoring its competitor Apple Music.
