You can now ask Siri to play Spotify music - supports CarPlay

We finally have Siri/CarPlay support for Spotify!

Make sure you have iOS13 and the latest Spotify v8.5.26 (released this morning).

Spotify has today released its iOS 13 update, which allows users to ask Siri to play albums and playlists using their voice. This brings Spotify up to par with other music apps; SiriKit integration for audio apps was exclusive to Apple Music until iOS 13.

To use Spotify with Siri, install the update and then ask to play an album or song ‘with Spotify’. The update also allows hands-free control through CarPlay. Spotify is also launching a tvOS app for Apple TV today.

The release notes for the Spotify update mention Siri integration is compatible with iPhone, iPad, CarPlay, AirPods, and HomePod via AirPlay. In our testing, the HomePod does not recognize Spotify song requests. Perhaps this is waiting on a forthcoming iOS 13.2 software update for HomePod.

With SiriKit for audio apps, Spotify can now behave like Apple Music when it comes to Siri commands on iOS. You can ask Siri things like ‘Play (album name) on Spotify’, ‘Play the latest song by (artist name) using Spotify’, or even ‘Spotify (playlist name) playlist’. The important thing is that you need to acknowledge that the command is intended for Spotify. Without an app name in the request, Siri will default to Apple Music (even if the Apple Music app is uninstalled).
