Spotify is lastly gaining the flexibility to play songs, albums, and playlists through Siri. The newest beta variations of Spotify embrace this help, and The Verge has been in a position to check taking part in songs through Siri on the newest iOS 13.1 replace. It’s a part of new capabilities that Apple has launched with iOS 13, and it means music apps like Spotify are actually on equal footing with Apple Music for requests through Siri.
While this new characteristic enables you to request Spotify songs with Siri on an iPhone, it doesn’t at the moment work on an Apple Watch as Apple’s wearable doesn’t have a devoted Spotify app. Instead, it’s merely a controller for taking part in songs on different Spotify-enabled gadgets. Siri merely responds with “I’m sorry, I can’t do that on your Apple Watch” while you strive. We haven’t been in a position to check whether or not the HomePod now works with Spotify in consequence, but it surely’s unlikely.

However, the Spotify and Siri integration works effectively on Apple’s AirPods, permitting you to say “Hey Siri” and request albums, playlists, or songs to play on Spotify’s service. One factor that doesn’t work effectively is making an attempt to play podcasts with Siri, as Spotify makes an attempt to seek for music as an alternative of devoted podcasts.
Spotify is at the moment testing this new performance, and it’ll possible debut within the coming weeks in the principle app. We received an early have a look at Spotify on the Apple Watch final yr in beta, and the characteristic launched lower than two weeks later.
