Using the voice control on your iPhone, you can access different features. You can turn on the car mode, activate the “wake word,” or even disable the microphone.
Turn off the “Hey Spotify” feature
Whether you’re a Spotify Premium user or not, the new Hey Spotify feature can help you skip tracks, create playlists, and search for music. It’s only available on the Android and iOS versions of the Spotify app, however. The feature allows you to use your voice to control your Spotify experience from anywhere.
The new Hey, Spotify, assistant is just the latest addition to the app. It joins a plethora of voice controls already available on Spotify, including the ability to search for podcasts and songs. You can also ask to load podcast episodes, play a specific artist, and pause, play, or skip tracks.
While this is a great new feature, it also raises a few privacy concerns. To avoid accidentally activating it, you may want to turn it off.
“Hey, Spotify” is a hands-free wake word that’s now rolling out to iPhone and Android users. To enable it, you’ll need to go to your phone’s settings and make sure it’s turned on.
As for what you can actually do with it, you can control your playlists, pause tracks, and even download songs from Spotify. The “Hey, Spotify” feature doesn’t support every feature, though. It can’t play music while you’re away from your device, for example. But it does offer a much more convenient and convenient way to begin your music experience.
If you’re a Spotify Premium user, you can use the Hey, Spotify, assistant to do everything from ask to play a specific artist or song, to searching for new ones. The “Hey, Spotify” assistant also lets you request playlists, listen to podcasts, and even play tunes while you’re driving.
You’ll also need to ensure that you give Spotify permission to access your microphone and allow it to record audio. You can do this by turning on the “Give Microphone Access” option in the Spotify app’s settings.
While you’re at it, you might as well check out the other new features in the update, such as the ability to see incoming calls and add new items to your play queue. The company has also plans to add a HiFi tier to its subscription service.
Disable the microphone
Having Spotify voice controls is a great way to have control over your music without having to hold the phone in your hand. The app is constantly improving its voice commands and features. However, there are certain limitations to the service. For instance, it can’t understand the sound of your voice when it’s being said in a loud environment. So, you may need to move to a quieter location if you want to hear the full effect of your request.
You can ask for a specific song, skip tracks, play a particular artist or load a podcast episode. To get this functionality working, you’ll have to give the app permission to use your microphone. And, once you’ve enabled it, you’ll need to make sure to update the app to the latest version.
Spotify’s voice controls are only available to Premium users. If you don’t have a Premium subscription, you’ll have to disable the feature in your device’s settings.
The Spotify voice control is a useful feature that allows you to verbally request music, pause and play a track or listen to an album. Although, this is only available on mobile devices. It works best with an unlocked phone. The app is also compatible with CarPlay and Google Assistant.
The company has also added a “Hey Spotify” feature that allows you to access this feature even if you’re not using your phone. This function is a bit of a misnomer, though. It’s an opt-in feature that’s available to users in a small number of countries. To enable it, you’ll need to open the app and say the wake phrase.
The other obvious choice is to turn off the feature. This protects your privacy. If you’re concerned that you’ll accidentally activate it, simply turn off the toggle that’s next to Spotify in your device’s Settings app.
The Spotify “Hey Spotify” feature is one of the many new features introduced by the Swedish company. It’s also the name of an original Spotify podcast. The story of the Clash is told in the episode “Stay Free: The Story of the Clash”. And, while the name is a mouthful, it’s a cool one.
Activate the “wake word” feature
Activate the “wake word” feature of Spotify voice control for iPhone and Android users. This is a new feature that will help you control music streaming by using voice commands. It will also allow you to play songs, albums, and playlists.
The “wake word” feature is an opt-in feature, meaning you will have to go into Spotify’s settings to enable it. This will work on all subscription tiers. It will send notifications to let you know when the feature has been turned on.
Once the feature has been enabled, you can say the wake word to begin your Spotify searches. It is similar to the “Hey Google” and “Hey Siri” features. The only difference is that you will only be able to use it with the Spotify app open. If the screen is locked, the assistant will not work.
Spotify has been quietly testing this feature for a few weeks. But now it’s finally starting to roll out to all users.
The “Hey Spotify” wake phrase is an addition to the voice-activated search feature that Premium subscribers have access to. This feature is available for iPhone and Android users, and it will continue to be offered to all subscription tiers. It has been in development for several months, and is a step toward bringing hands-free navigation to Spotify.
Before the wake phrase, users had to manually press the microphone button on their device to trigger a native voice search. The search would be recorded, but it wouldn’t start until Spotify listened to the wake word. This can be a big privacy concern for some users, but you should read the fine print before you turn it on.
In order to activate the “wake word” feature of Spotify, you’ll have to grant Spotify permission to access your microphone. To do this, go to the Settings section and click on the Voice section. This will open a menu that allows you to toggle the feature on.
The wake word feature is currently being tested on both iOS and Android devices. You can enable it in the app’s settings, or you can go into the Voice Interactions section to toggle the feature on and off.
Turn on Car Mode
Earlier this month, Spotify launched a new in-car player called the “Car Thing.” It works with the Spotify app, and it has voice controls. But the app’s Car Mode has yet to roll out to iPhone users. Despite that, the company is encouraging people to test drive it.
If you have an iPhone, you can install the app, connect to your car’s stereo, and launch the Car Mode feature. Then you can play music, browse through albums, and fast forward. The interface is the same as the regular version, but the playing bar is located at the bottom of the screen, and there’s only one like button.
The new Car Mode features a simplified interface. The larger buttons and album art help make it easier to interact with the app while driving. It also gives drivers easier access to their favorite playlists and stations. And there’s even a Library tab that allows you to access recent listening.
The biggest change is in the interface. It’s still a bit of a mess, but it’s cleaner than the old Car View interface. It’s a less busy layout than the old version, and it uses speech commands to help you search for music.
When you pair the app with your car’s audio system, you’ll notice a floating action button. You can either turn on the Car Mode manually or let it automatically start when you’re connected to your car’s Bluetooth. If the connection is lost, the Car Mode will automatically be turned off.
The Car Mode is available on all subscription tiers. You can use voice commands to start and stop music, and to pause, shuffle, and play your songs. You can also use the microphone button to pause and search for artists and tracks. You can even ask for podcasts.
Spotify has also partnered with Anchor, a podcast publishing tool that’s tied to the Audience Network. You can ask to receive podcasts in the Car Mode. If you don’t want to receive any, you can type “Urgent” and then press the home button to skip the message.
You can also swipe to remove presets, or add a new one in the overflow menu.
