Siri now supports voice commands for YouTube Music

The iOS version of YouTube Music has finally been supported by Siri. It means iOS users can now call Siri and ask the wizard to play music, and can filter by album, track or artist. Watch the demo video.

The app is also integrated with Siri Shortcuts, so you can record voice shortcuts to launch songs or playlists. This is the second Google app to support Siri, the first being Google Voice.

Ironically, YouTube Music doesn't work 100% with Google Assistant

For users outside the U.S., the only way to get full use of Google Assistant is to change the language to use English voice commands. However, this method will not work for YouTube Music as the app works by geographic location.

If you ask Google Assistant to play a song on YouTube Music, it will only work if you are in the United States. Outside the country, the assistant forwards the request to the regular YouTube app or even Spotify sometimes.

However, as already shown, at Siri everything works perfectly. With a subscription to YouTube Music, iOS users around the world can order songs by voice. On Android, under the same conditions, not possible right now. How does Google miss such a gap?

Support for Spotify on Siri would be greatly appreciated

More important than YouTube Music was the implementation of Spotify in Siri's voice commands. After all, it's the most used audio platform in the world, it makes perfect sense. However, although it has already been rumored, Siri does not accept music requests for Spotify.

Instead, Apple's assistant suggests Apple Music, Spotify's biggest competitor. It seems that Apple would rather have YouTube Music (also a rival service) on its platform than Spotify, which already has about 40 million subscribers over Apple Music.
