It’s no surprise that Apple puts their in-house music streaming service over the competition like Spotify, YouTube Music, Amazon Prime Music, and others. Typically, when you ask Siri to play a song, it uses Apple Music to get it done and this cannot be more frustrating to someone who uses Spotify or any other service. With the latest iOS and iPadOS versions, Apple has included the ability to change the preferred app that’ll be used for music searches.

How to Set the Default Music App on iPhone & iPad via Siri

It’s extremely easy to change the default Music app that you’ll be surprised. You don’t even have to fiddle around with the settings because you’ll be using Siri to get it done. Here’s what you need to do;

  1. Simply use the voice command, “Hey Siri, can you play music using other apps?” and you should get a response with the following pop-up on the screen. This will list out all the music apps installed on your device. Tap on the app you want to use.

  2. Siri will request access to the music app’s data to set it as the default app. Tap on “Yes” to confirm.

As you can see, it’s that simple to change the default music app on your iOS and iPadOS devices now.

From now on, if you initiate a music search using a simple voice command, Siri will now playback the music using the streaming service that you primarily use. Prior to this update, users had to specify the music app that they want to play a particular song on, but that’s no longer needed once you’ve made this change.

It’s worth pointing out that using the voice command that we mentioned to change the preferred music app may not work all the time. If you’re unable to bring up the list of music apps with Siri, restart your iPhone or iPad and try to rephrase the voice command or use similar commands to get it to work properly.
