iOS 14.5: Setting the Default Music Service

Jay Peters (tweet):

But users who have already installed the beta discovered another great feature: you’ll be able to select a third-party default music service when you ask to play a song using Siri — including Spotify (via MacRumors).

When you ask Siri to play a song on iOS 14.5, you may be prompted to select which app you want to use to play it, according to a screenshot shared on Reddit.

Next, how about supporting Google Maps and Alexa?

Or how about returning to playing my audio book through my library app (BorrowBox) instead of switching over to Music any time I play any other audio (eg watch a video in News or Safari).

They can manage to switch back to Apple’s own Podcast, but not to third party apps. Apple’s aggressive integration and aggressive third party exclusion dilutes the value of the device.

Lately its been switching back to Music between each track of my audiobook!
