Apple releases clarification on default music service feature for iOS 14.5 beta

Washington: Apple recently clarified that the beta version of iOS 14.5 will not allow users to select a new music service by default. Instead, the feature is based on Siri intelligence, which means it can improve and even change over time as the virtual assistant learns to better understand the listening habits of Siri. its users.

According to The Verge, the beta of iOS 14.5, released in February, seemed to have a long overdue feature. It looked like users would be able to set Spotify or other music services as the default for Siri requests.

Once the choice is made, the Siri song requests would then be played from the service selected by the user without the need to select them again.

But Apple doesn’t see this feature as equivalent to setting up an app by default, an option it recently started allowing for email and browser apps. The feature is an attempt to help Siri learn the listening apps that an individual might want to use for different types of audio content, not just music.

Apple also noted that there is no setting in iOS where users can set their default music service, unlike the options available to set a default email service or browser. However, users can still request that a song be played from a specific service as part of their Siri request.

According to The Verge, the company appears to be tweaking the feature, as it was removed from the second beta before being reintroduced this week with the third. Nevertheless, there is still a possibility that the functionality will change before the final version, as it is still in beta.
