Spotify and Apple would be in conversation with each other to be able to operate Spotify through Apple's voice assistant Siri. That is what The Information writes based on insiders.
For example, Siri would allow iPhone users to request certain songs, as well as playlists and albums. With the mobile operating system iOS 13, which will be released in the fall, Apple makes SiriKit available for third-party audio apps.
Developers can then build in support for Siri in their apps. Users can request music, podcast and audio books from sources other than Apple apps. Siri currently only works with Apple's music and podcast app.
According to The Information , Apple's own music service Apple Music remains the standard music streaming service at Siri, even when the companies reach an agreement.
Complaints from Spotify
Spotify filed another complaint with the European Commission in March about the App Store and Apple Music. According to the Swedish music service, Apple used "unfair" rules on its platform. That would limit Apple's choice of users and prevent innovation.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek also complained that Spotify and other music services were not welcome to work with services such as Siri.
