Spotify finally works with Siri and Apple TV

Spotify finally works with Siri and Apple TV

Spotify has been testing this feature in the beta version of the app during this past couple of months and fortunately, the testing phase is now over.

Spotify has started the experience to perform music with Apple's Siri voice helper on the iPhone and iPad.

Now, one can ask Siri to play music through Spotify on iOS and iPadOS. Due to restrictions on free accounts though, asking for an album results in a random song from an album being played, and asking for a particular song plays something by an entirely different artist. In addition to listening with Spotify, you can now launch music in Pandora and get directions in Google Maps or Waze. To make sure you don't miss a thing, just keep your Updates turned on. You can download it via the tvOS App Store.

Kaelin meanwhile told reporters it was a moment he had dreamt of for a long time . James Peebles won the award "for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology ".

With iOS 13, Siri is becoming more open to services that compete with Apple's own. Spotify also says that it works with the HomePod via AirPlay, which is an important caveat. Another new extension will automatically place Spotify into Data Saver mode when you initiate Low Data Mode on your device.

Previously, iPhone owners who wished to play their music on Spotify using Siri need to the Apple assistant to play their music specifically on the streaming app. Failure to mention "Spotify" would always result to the assistant playing music from Apple's own Apple Music app. And it brings a brand-new Apple TV app. "We're excited to bring this app to Apple TV and will continue to innovate and enhance the app-there's plenty more in the works", said Spotify about the new update. Multiple apps in the App Store offered female cycle tracking before Apple added the same feature to its own health tracking app this fall, for example. Obviously, you'll need a device running iOS 13 to take advantage of this feature, but that shouldn't be too hard to achieve considering that the operating system is compatible with iPhones dating back to the iPhone 6S and SE. This will let users browse and search their Spotify libraries and playlists directly on the big screen, with a user interface that looks similar to Apple Music.
