Spotify please integrate the Siri voice command in your app since now apple opened that to third party.

you will loose a tons of clients because every state in US is passing the driving law that doesn't allow to drive while using any device.

you should integrate that as soon as possible

found a very Rube Goldbergish and barely useful way to make Siri find and play music on Spotify, but it works

 

1. say something like “hey siri - search web for Spotify Steve Earle”

 

2. it pulls up web search results and the first should be a link to that search with a “open.spotify.com/...” url

 

3.  click that link to open the page

 

4. click open in Spotify app link at top of page when it loads

 

5.  now you’re in the app for what you searched.

 

6.  once you start playing something you can say “hey siri pause, play, next, etc”

 

same thing can be done for finding radio stations on tunein and iheart

Even with iOs11 Apple foolishly doesn't allow music integrations with Siri (no doubt to give their own music service an edge), there's literally nothing Spotify can do at this point.

Say "Previous Track" and it will go back. You may have to say it twice to get back depending on how far into the song you are. I think it's around 3 seconds.

Per my understanding of Spotify-Siri integration, it is not possible to
simply say “play (song) on Spotify”. That is an Apple Music feature, but
not a Spotify feature at this time. However, you CAN do the following:
- Open Spotify “Hey Siri, open Spotify”. Siri will say “you need to unlock
your iDevice first” if not unlocked.
You will need to select content to play, then you can:
- “skip”
- “last song” which you can say within 2 seconds or so of song starting or
you can do the process it twice quickly.
- “pause”
- “play”

It would be great to see further integration and maybe even an Apple Watch
app, but for now that’s all that’s available to us. Or you can use Apple
Music if you really want/need full control. I am testing it out right now,
and it is nice to talk to it and it just work.

I just downloaded the Melody app for iPhone. This did give me the ability to use voice search on Spotify from my iPhone. The steps I took were:

 

1. said "Open Melody" to Siri.

2. clicked the voice button in Melody app

3. said "play tiny dancer by Elton John"

 

This played the song. (Please note you must have Spotify premium for this to work).

 

Folks at Melody: is there a way to initiate a voice request without clicking the button on the app? It would be nice to be able to open the app and then it waits for a voice command without putting the mic icon. Perhaps this can be a switch in the settings.
