Apple Music provides a seamless music streaming experience across all Apple Devices. But it doesn’t mean that significance of Spotify has decreased. Also, you can get a better music experience by using Siri with Spotify on the iPhone and iPad. So, in this tutorial, we are going to explain how you can use Siri to play Spotify music on iOS and iPadOS to get a more pleasurable music experience.
As Apple has allowed third-party music apps integration with Siri, you can enjoy a better streaming experience on Spotify. This integration has made Siri even more useful and enhanced the user experience.
NOTE: Your device must be running iOS 13 and the latest version of Spotify. Plus, you need to end each of your voice commands with “on/from Spotify“. Otherwise Siri will use Apple Music instead of Spotify.
If you are not running the latest version of iOS, you can use Siri Shortcuts to play music using voice commands. We have explained those steps in the next section. Now that all the clouds have been cleared off, it’s time to get on with the steps!
