Spotify wont ask for microphone permission

user-removed
Not applicable

 

Premium account running on an iPhone 7+ with iOS 12.1.

 

I do not know how to access spotify voice. The microphone option in the search bar is missing, so i cannot access through the app. If I go to microphone setttings in the privacy tab on my phone, the option to enable for spotify is missong there too. I have no idea how to get spotify to ask me for mic permissions. Does anybody have a way or a solution? 

 

Thanks!

After getting in touch with a moderator, I have found out that the microphone option only works for people with Premium inside the US. If your account is not registered in the US, then it is normal for you not to see any microphone option.

Have a nice day!

This is most likely not a problem with spotify. When it asked you to open microphone the first time, if you said no thanks, you cant turn it on from the app anymore. You should go to Settings > Spotify (scroll all the way down) > Microphone and turn it on from there. That is probably the issue.

Hope this helped!

Unfortunatley there is no microphone option there. I've deleted and reinstalled spotify multiple times and it has never asked me for microphone permission.

I think you might need to reinstall the app to fix this problem. I cant think of any other solution. It should ask you again when you reinstall it, otherwise, visiting the apple store is your best bet :).

Have a nice day!

I don't think you are reading what is being written. I have the same problems. I have also deleted and reinstalled the app as the other two have written. Spotify is not showing up in the Settings/Privacy/Microphone section. Long pressing the search option in Spotify does not work. Please give a solution that shows you have actually read the messages.

Again, I think the problem you are having is with your phone not spotify, although it does seem really weird that the microphone option does not show up in the spotify settings. I will let specialists know about this as they are more likely to find out the cause of this issue. Thank you, have a nice day.

I am registered for Premium in the US, I have uninstalled Spotify and reinstalled it, I have gone to the Settings>Privacy>Microphone section and Spotify does not appear in there, I have also gone to the Settings>Spotify section and nothing appears in there mentioning a microphone. And, when I reinstalled the app, it didn't ask for permission to have access to the microphone either.

Hello, 
When will Spotify Voice will be available in Australia?
I use voice commands a lot on a daily basis. I'm very surprised that it isn't available.
