Device: iPhone 12 Mini
Operating System: iOS 15.5
My Question or Issue:
Oftentimes (not ALWAYS) when I ask Siri to play a playlist of mine that has the same or similar name to a more popular/Spotify curated playlist, Siri plays the one that is not mine.
An example where it almost never works is my “- tropical house -” playlist. There’s a Spotify playlist called “Tropical House” and it plays that instead. I do not have that playlist liked/saved and I do not listen to it.
It shouldn’t be the dashes causing the issue because Siri has no problem playing my other playlists with more unique names and they all have those dashes as well.
I do not have this issue when I use my Google Home/Nest. I’m guessing it has something to do with not recognizing “my” in the command.
Thanks for posting in the Community!
To me it looks like your speaker isn't recognizing the 'my' in the command.
Maybe you could put more emphasis on the word or try changing the playlist name a bit so it doesn't get mixed up with the one from Spotify?
The dashes shouldn't be an issue 🙂
Even when I spell out my exact playlist title it’ll choose a similar Spotify created playlist. Please change the priority of what Siri plays so that a User’s playlists are first choice.
Hi there @ElizabethM99,
Thank you for the reply and the screenshots.
We've passed on your feedback about this feature to the right teams at Spotify.
This issue is related to how the Siri app makes requests to the Spotify library, which is not entirely up to Spotify, nevertheless our tech folks are constantly trying to improve the experience so that the voice assistants can find exactly what you're looking for.
Some members of the Community have suggested that renaming your playlists with more specific and not so common names helps in some cases, as the voice assistant won't mix them up with other more popular public playlists or albums.
I have the same issue. Asking for my playlist “collection 1” plays public playlist “this is collective soul” no matter how slowly and clearly I enunciate. I already renamed it from “playlist 1” because it stopped playing it on Siri request
