Your voice-controlled assistant is a convenient way to work with Apple Music when the touchscreen isn’t
Touchscreens are certainly a nice way to browse a large music collection, but there are times when you’ll want to react to what’s playing without having to pull your iPhone out of your pocket. You might want to tell the Music app that you love a track that’s playing on Beats 1 or, in the case of personalised stations, that you want to hear more or less stuff like the current track. Siri makes this possible. Just tell Siri you love a track. When you’re listening to playlists and stations curated by Apple Music’s staff, you might not even know what a track is or who it’s by. Just ask Siri what it is. If you thoroughly dislike a track, or just don’t want to hear it right now, you can tell Siri to skip it. Conversely, you can tell it to add a track you like to your library (remember to use this instruction instead of marking a track as loved if you don’t want it to influence what’s shown on the For You page.) You can even tell Siri to play hits from a specific year, and don’t forget general commands, such as adding an extra instruction to shuffle playback.
You needn’t pull out your iPhone to show you love a track – just tell Siri, though you’ll need to accept a short break in rhythm. If you like a track but don’t love it, just ask Siri to add it to your library.
