Austin is about to make it illegal to use my phone at all while driving. I'd like to be able to use voice commands to control Spotify while driving. Can I do this? Or is there an app that will help me do this? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately, Apple has not opened up Siri to third party apps. That means you cannot use voice commands with Spotify using Siri.
A voice command such as "play Spotify" will only open up the Spotify app.
A voice command such as "pause Spotify" will result in a "ok, paused" reply, but won't actually do anything.
Until Apple opens up Siri for third party developers to use with their apps, you won't be able to control Spotify using Siri.
Apple just recently opened up Touch ID to developers, so maybe in the future they will be less restrictive with Siri and open it up.

Melody Voice Assistant can now do this for you (full disclaimer: I work here). Once you start the app and connnect it to your Spotify account - you can play a song, artist, album or genre and also control your music simply using your voice.
