Spotify launches voice search on the Android app. “Hey Spotify” is here

The music streaming service, Spotify, is working on a new search mode for its application mobile available for Android and iOS. More specifically, the possibility of doing voice searches through the application for mobile devices.

This thesis was put forward last month, without any dates for its availability having been put forward. Now, however, the possibility to search for a song, band, or playlist with just voice commands is coming to Android.

“Hey Spotify” is the new activation phrase for voice search

As the GSMArena portal advances, the novelty reached Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphones today, presented to prompt above. This window pop-up give us the news and an example of the possibility of searching with voice commands.

In effect, the notification received after the last update of the Spotify app for Android, warns the user of what they can now do in the application. To search for a song, or band, for example, you just have to say the activation phrase – “Hey Spotify“.

This “hotkey” will activate the application’s native search engine – when the smartphone screen is turned on and the Spotify application is running (open). In other words, you will always be listening to the phrase “Hey Spotify” during its use.

Distribution started today (6) in the United States of America

Voice search brings with it new privacy concerns. According to the company’s policy for the United States of America – the region that has already received this option – the recordings and transcriptions only apply to searches carried out on the app.

The platform thus carries out the recording and transcription of the terms searched by the user only when he touches the voice search button, or uses the activation phrase “Hey Spotify”. The feature is not yet available in Europe at the time of writing.

We are facing a new accessibility feature that can streamline searches performed on the application. It is also a feature already appreciated by users who are increasingly taking advantage of virtual assistants from Google, Amazon and Apple.

This is the new “hands-free” search option on Spotify

In fact, the activation phase itself – “Hey Spotify” – is already a buzzword familiar to most users. So common in Google Assistant on phones, smart speakers and other IoT devices.

We emphasize that voice search – by tapping the dedicated button – was introduced in 2019 for Spotify Premium users. The first signs of the hands-free search option appeared in March 2020. Now, they are beginning to reach users.

Its arrival on the iOS platform should not be delayed, as will its availability in Europe.
