[iOS] Siri Shortcuts Support

Status: Not Right Now


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.


I don’t exactly know how this works but for the Spotify app on iOS, make shortcut interactions. I’ve seen other apps do it, and I feel like that’s one feature still missing. I wanted to make my phone play an album when I open a certain app. Again, I don’t know how adding the interactions works but it would definitely add a bit of something exclusive to Spotify.


I just want a quick way to get to the equalizer. It is so buried in settings that I almost wish that it didn’t work as well as it does. 

I want a shortcut allowing access directly to equalizer from anywhere within iOS. I usually only want to adjust the bass bands, but I need do this very frequently.


I want this so bad I consider switching to Apple Music again
