[iOS] Siri Shortcuts Support


With the release of iOS 12, iPhone users can now utilize Shortcuts to make the most of their daily routines by automating tasks and steps in both native and third party apps. Currently, the extent to which Spotify can be utilized via Shortcuts is to simply Open App.



I wish to see more options and a wider scope of utility of Spotify in Shortcuts to the capacity of playing specific playlists when I leave my home, and adding the current song to a new custom playlist that I can name, or even copying a song link to a tweet. I know the Shortcut app would be capable of handling a workflow along those lines but it seems it would require a bit more generosity from the Spotify app.



Please note that this is NOT the same idea requested here considering that post is requesting for "Siri Integration" not "Shortcut Support". In addition, this idea is no longer an announcement as prefaced here and is now a public feature in iOS 12 as of Monday (9/17).

Hey folks, Spotify staff here.

We wanted to post an update as this idea has reached over 500 votes from our users.


We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we’re afraid we don’t have any further information to share at the moment.


We typically don't announce integrations with third parties in advance. The best place to keep an eye on is our blog for news updates about any such partnerships.


Thanks for continuing to share your ideas and give us feedback in our Idea Exchange.


All Spotify needs to know here is that avoiding making it easier for people to use iPhones with Spotify only means iTunes becomes more attractive. 


Please take this one serious. I listen to Spotify in the car for hours. If I switch back to Apple Music I can use Siri to search for a song I want to hear. With Spotify I have to type...which.... Shortcuts SHOULD give us a path here.

Marked as new idea.




Similar/same to my idea here


I think its important to have autoplay as an option for this as well, as the whole point is to get into playing your music as fast as possible with as little interaction as necessary.


It’s rather surprising that Spotify is behind the curve on Siri Shortcuts. I’m switching to a more responsive service 


I hope spotify adds siri shortcut support soon.  I would consider switching to apple music if they don't.  I already have so many apple devices, I wouldn't really be missing out on much.

I’ve cancelled my subscription and switching.

I've been waiting for years to be able to use Siri with Spotify. Whereas before Apple's limitations might have been to blame, now with the availability of Shortcuts the ball is on Spotify's court. If this doesn't happen soon, I'll look into switching to Apple Music because as much as I love Spotify, this feature is really crucial for me and I'm getting tired of waiting.


The large i

struggleis that people are trying to make their own shortcuts but are coming to dead ends because of Spotify’s lack of support. I myself was only able to find one workflow for Spotify that opens safari links to my playlists which auto open in the app. Even with that I had to reformat a bunch of stuff to even get it to work. We need shortcuts for Spotify. 


yes pls add URIs to "my library/songs" as well as autoplay
