Spotify is finally getting Siri support with iOS 13.1. You can now play songs, albums, and playlists via Siri. Spotify has released the feature in the latest beta versions of its app. It’s part of new capabilities that Apple has introduced with iOS 13, and it means music apps like Spotify are now on equal footing with Apple Music for requests via Siri.
While this new feature lets you request Spotify songs with Siri on an iPhone, it does not currently work on an Apple Watch. Siri simply responds with “I’m sorry, I can’t do that on your Apple Watch” when you try. Whether the feature works on HomePod isn’t confirmed, it is quite unlikely.
The Spotify and Siri integration works well on Apple’s AirPods, allowing you to request albums, playlists, or songs to play on Spotify’s service. Trying to play podcasts with Siri doesn’t work as Spotify attempts to search for music instead of dedicated podcasts. Spotify is currently testing this new functionality, and it will likely debut in the coming weeks in the main app.
