Today Spotify released an update for its Apple Watch app to include Siri support. You can now control your Spotify music via Siri on your watch by adding “on Spotify” at the end of a voice command. However, you’ll still need a nearby iPhone to play Spotify music.
To use Siri with Spotify, your Apple Watch must be on watchOS 6. If you already have this update, simply update your Spotify Apple Watch app. The change is not too surprising, but late, since Apple made this possible in iOS 13 and watchOS 6. Once you’ve updated, you can say something like: “” Hey Siri, plays music on Spotify. “
Sadly, unlike the Pandora Watch app, you’ll still need your nearby iPhone to use Spotify on your Apple Watch. This is because the Spotify app does little more than a remote control for the iPhone app. Hopefully Spotify will work soon to expand its Apple Watch app capacity.
