In case we did not have enough virtual assistants available on our iPhone, to Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant we have to add a new one, the one that Spotify offers us within its application. Swedish firm Spotify has started deploy a new role in the form of a virtual assistant that allows us to interact with the application through voice commands.
Being an assistant of an application to play music, the only thing we can do is ask you to play a song, a playlist, a specific album… As long as the application is on the screen. As stated from GSM Arena This feature, which was in beta, has begun to roll out among iOS and Android users.
Yes, interact with the Spotify assistant You have to pronounce the words "Hey Spotify" (presumably in Spanish it will be "Hey Spotify" but I have not been able to verify this as this function is not yet available at the time of publishing this article).
This function is disabled by default, so we will have to access the application's Settings (by pressing the gear wheel located in the upper right corner of the main page), access Voice interactions and activate the Hey Spotify / Hey Spotify switch, according to 9to5Mac.
This function is in addition to the one that users of the paid version of Spotify already had, a function that allows search using voice commands in the application. The difference with the assistant is that we do not need to interact with the terminal.
The latest news related to Spotify can be found in the High Fidelity music service It will launch later this year, a service that we still do not know how much it will cost, but it is most likely that it will be very similar in price to what Tidal currently offers.
