Playing music with Siri is so much quicker than manually sifting through the music collection on your iOS device. With Siri, you just control the Music app on your gadget by voice. You can tell Siri to play songs by title, artist, playlist, and genre. You can ask Siri what’s currently playing, and you can shuffle albums, artists and playlists. You can find some tips on how that’s done below.
