Apple has a long history of anti-competitive practices, but today’s news isn’t that at all. You can now ask Siri to play music on Spotify’s app starting today. Example, “Hey Siri, play music on Spotify.”
This is a big change for Apple and a change to their typical strategy, one that Apple began last year, with watchOS 6. Spotify immediately went to work on getting it to work on iPhones but has lagged a bit for Apple Watch. Better late than never I guess.
Now let’s get Apple to drop the “on Spotify” part. On Android you can set any music app as the default which would be the fix for Apple’s “on Spotify” issue. Apple was rumored to allow 3rd party Web Browser and Email Client apps to be set as default, how about Music too? While we are at it, how about letting users set any app as the default 👍.
