Spotify Releases Video Targeting Apple On Same Day As Siri Integration: 'It's time to play fair' | hypebot

Spotify newInstead of using yesterday's announcement that Siri now included voice control of Spotify to make nice with Apple, the streamer had doubled down on the criticism of its much larger rival.

"Apple comes between you and the music you love to listen to"

"We love Apple. But we don't love it when Apple comes between you and the music you love to listen to," declares a new video released by Apple yesterday. In fact, the "years" that it took Apple to allow Spotify to access Siri and the fact that Apple Music is still the default music app are part of Spotify's ongoing grievances. 

Siri access, the 30% Apple tax" that all apps must pay to sell subscriptions on the platform and the restrictions that keep Sptofy from running promotions like 99 cents for three months via Apple, all top the list of issues the streamer brought to an EU anti-trust body earlier this year and which the US Congress is now looking into.
