What do you say?
With your iPhone or iPad updated and the latest version of Spotify installed, you don't have to do anything special. Activate Siri, as you would normally, and give a command like "Play NF on Spotify."
I have achieved the same by saying "with Spotify" and "Using Spotify". On one occasion Siri heard me wrong and I thought I said "Play NF Spotify" and it still worked. The key is to make sure you say Spotify at the end of the assignment, although the official guidance from Spotify is to use "on Spotify", so if you have trouble making assignments work, try saying so.
According to Spotify, some supported Siri commands include:
- Play song / artist / album / station on Spotify
- Play personal playlist on Spotify
- Play personal composite playlist (eg Discover Weekly) on Spotify  Play some new releases on Spotify
- Play podcast on Spotify
If you listen to a song and want to know the name, you can ask Siri: "What song is this on Spotify?" or: "What's going on on Spotify?" and receive the current information.
