Use the Spotify mic on the search menu speak a playlist name and it will start playing your playlists ... Works pretty well even for next song or previous song and for searching songs as well ( Premium )
Given how slack Spotify have been with not even bothering to provide a native app for Apple TV I’m not holding my breath, Seriously it’s been three years since Apple released the 4th Gen Apple TV with an AppStore and Spotify have done zero to provide us with native playback options, what a joke.
Spotify is absolute trash at supporting anything new from day one. They wait months to even start, instead of participating in the beta programs like every other freaking developer on the App Store. If they hope to compete with Apple Music long term, which will always be ready from day one for all of Apple’s latest and greatest features, they need to be right on the cutting edge and not postpone progress.
Adding my support to this. Spotify needs to work with Siri. This is a safety feature, and is now considered to be a standard feature for iOS apps.
If we don't receive an update soon - and ETA for Siri integration - I will likely switch to Apple Music. Losing one customer will likely not hurt Spotify, but I suspect that there are many of us who plan to do the same if necessary. This could impact Spotify's subscriber base if it is not addressed. Note: I am a paid subscriber with a family subscriptions.
I’m in the same boat as sezduck. I just signed up for a 3 month trial of Apple Music. There are plenty of services that will port over playlists from Spotify to Apple Music so the switch was painless. Spotify isn’t usable with Apple CarPlay without Siri integration. I prefer Spotify’s webapp, but if Spotify hasn’t integrated with Siri by the end of the Apple Music trial, I’ll drop our Spotify family plan.
