How to use ‘Hey Spotify’ voice commands in the Spotify iOS app

It’s ‘Hey Spotify,’ not ‘Hey Siri.’

Spotify has made it clear that it doesn't think Apple plays fair as a music streaming rivalry and platform holder. But give Spotify credit—the company is doing more than just filing legal complaints against Apple for unfair business practices, it's striving to make its service more appealing than Apple Music. In February, Spotify added Spotify HiFi so you can listen to music with CD-quality sound, something Apple music doesn't have. There have also been updates to the apps and web interface to make the service easier to use. And now, the Spotify iOS app supports Voice Interactions that provide hands-free control of the app.
