Apple: iOS 14.5 after all will not let you define another music service


Apple recently provided clarification on defining a preferred service for streaming of music. Contrary to the expectations of users, the American stresses that it will not be possible to define a new standard service.

At stake would be the possibility of replacing Apple Music with Spotify, for example, to listen to your favorite songs. In statements to the TechCrunch, Apple reports that this will not be possible after all.

It is important to remember that in the iOS 14.5 beta, when Siri is asked to play a song, it is requested to define a service for the task. After the choice has been made, Apple's assistant will assume your choice in the next commands for playing music.


Functionality will only serve to improve the capabilities of Siri

Thanks to the above, many have deduced that it would be possible to set up a permanent alternative service for playing music on the iPhone. However, the clarification provided by Apple now contradicts this thesis.

According to American technology, the purpose of this novelty is only to improve the quality of the responses offered by Siri. Educate this virtual assistant to the services you prefer in the reproduction of certain audible content.

“The feature is an attempt to help Siri learn the listening applications you want to use for different types of audio content – not just music. You may want to use Spotify to listen to music, but prefer to follow your podcasts on Apple Podcasts or in another third-party podcast application. And you might want to listen to audiobooks in another application. “

Apple also clarifies that there is no option in iOS 14.5 that provides the definition of a standard service for streaming of music. Something that contrasts with the possibility of choosing new applications for email or browser.

It is true that Apple is more open to third party services in the latest version of its operating system. However, to the displeasure of many, the options will not cover streaming of music.
