Spotify Working On Siri Integration With Its iPhone Music App?

Spotify Working On Siri Integration With Its iPhone Music App?

It would seem that popular music streaming service Spotify is cooking something especially juicy in the voice department. Forbes is reporting that Spotify’s CEO has shown off a “hack” that involved telling the service’s iOS app to play some tunes.

In a lengthy piece on Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, Forbes notes the following:

Does he [Daniel Ek] plan on building a voice activated Spotify interface? He flashes a mischievous smile. “Play me some Coldplay,” he tells the phone. Its small speakers ring out with the opening piano chords of the band’s hit “The Scientist.” “We hacked into it a few weeks ago,” Ek says, with a satisfied nod. “I’m not an inventor. I just want to make things better.”

Spotify is also working on an official iPad app, but an ETA has not been given for its release.

    My over 2 year old music app can do that. No hack required. But now I know how to get PR for the upcoming new version!
