How to use Siri to Control Spotify

Recent updates to iOS allow Siri to interact with third-party apps. This includes Spotify, Apple Music’s closest rival. You can now ask Siri to play Spotify songs, playlists, and podcasts using voice commands.

Apple Music is still the default music application, but now users can open a song in Spotify by saying:

Hey Siri, play *song name* in Spotify.

Hey Siri, play *playlist* In Spotify

Hey Siri, play *album* in Spotify

Play in Spotify

Activating Siri to work with Spotify

When you first ask Siri to use Spotify, it will prompt you for permission to access your data. Say “Yes” or tap the screen.

Spotify Access Data

If you prefer to switch off access or enable the feature manually, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and scroll down through your apps until you see Spotify.

Tap on Spotify and toggle the Use with Ask Siri switch, so it is set to green.
