Give Siri access to Spotify

To get Siri to work with Spotify, you need to give it access. The first time you use Siri with Spotify, it’ll ask for permission to access Spotify’s data. Just say ‘Yes’ or tap the Yes button.

You’ll also need to enable the ‘on Spotify’ feature in your iPhone settings. Go to Settings > Siri & Search and find Spotify in the list. Toggle the ‘Use with Ask Siri’ switch.

Now make sure Spotify is configured to work with Siri. The switch should be set to green.

That’s it! You’re ready to use Siri and Spotify together.

Be specific with your commands

Be sure to be specific with your commands when using Siri with Spotify. For the best results, make sure to include ‘on Spotify’ at the end of your request.

For example, say ‘Hey Siri, play my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify’ instead of just ‘Hey Siri, play my Discover Weekly playlist.’

Use “the” instead of “my”

Using ‘the’ instead of ‘my’ can work better when asking Siri to play playlists or liked songs on Spotify. I’ve found that asking Siri to play ‘the’ playlist or liked songs is more successful than asking it to play ‘my’ playlist.

For example, you can say ‘Hey Siri, shuffle play Liked songs on Spotify’ and it’ll work better than asking for ‘my’ playlist. You can also create one playlist with all your favorite songs, so that Siri can find them easily.

It’s worth a try – you might be surprised at the results!

Turn off the “Hey Spotify” feature

If you want to use Siri with Spotify, you’ll need to disable the Hey Spotify feature. To do so, go to Settings > Voice Interactions and toggle off the Hey Spotify switch.

Additionally, if you’re not in the US, you’ll need to disable Spotify’s access to the microphone. Go to Settings > Privacy > Microphone and toggle off the switch for Spotify.

It’s important to disable Hey Spotify before turning off microphone access. This may affect audio playback, but not videos and songs.

Once these steps are finished, you should be able to use Siri with Spotify.

Disable Spotify’s microphone access

To use Siri with Spotify, you’ll need to disable Spotify’s access to the microphone.

First, check your settings to make sure that the ‘Hey Spotify’ feature is disabled. If it isn’t, go to your settings and turn it off.

Then, go to your iPhone’s settings and select ‘Privacy’ then ‘Microphone’. Find Spotify in the list and toggle off the switch. This should allow Siri to use your microphone without interference from Spotify.

You may need to restart your phone after making these changes.

Finally, make sure that Siri is enabled in the settings app under ‘Siri & Search’. This should let you use Siri with Spotify without any hiccups.

Siri works best with Apple Music

You may find that Siri works best with Apple Music, not Spotify. Even though Siri can access the now playing feature on Spotify, it may not be able to play music. Apple and Spotify support have been unable to resolve this issue.

It’s possible that updates could affect Siri’s compatibility with Spotify, but the technical team is working on a fix.

You should be aware that if you enable Hey Spotify, it will take priority over Hey Siri, and you won’t be able to use Siri. To prevent this, you can disable Hey Spotify in your Settings.

If you’re not in the US, you may also need to disable Spotify’s microphone access in your iPhone settings. Doing this may affect audio playback, but not videos or songs.

So if you’re having trouble getting Siri to work with Spotify, you may want to try these options.
