[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.


It’s disappointing that this isn’t a feature yet 😢



Going on 5 years and Spotify still lacks Shortcuts support, while dozens of third party indie apps have no issues implementing it.


Does Spotify dev's actually listen to their user's wants?


Still not integrated?


this is a small reminder to everyone that switching to another service is easy. 


Folks, just abandon Spotify. I did it, just had a bit of work syncing everything to the competitor. But now I can finally enjoy all the nifty feature Spotify is holding back from its demanding and paying customers.


Just stop being such dickheads and actually deliver what your customers want.


Come on do something!


Having built iOS apps I can tell your iOS dev team would love to work on this and would probably even do it on their spare time. Just let it be. Let it beeeee. 


Switching to Apple Music 


Spotify has lost me as a customer because they can't be bothered to add shortcut support. I've already moved all my playlists over to Apple Music. All that money, and Spotify can't spend a few hours of dev time on an extremely popular feature.


Have there been any discussions about moving this idea forward? It would be a really nice feature.
