iPone 6 and Spotify using Apple CarPlay ios 10.2.1

I have an iPhone 6 and also have Spotify installed. Is there a way to use siri or maybe an app to control Spotify by voice like siri does with Apple music. I know that this is most likely a conflict of interest between Apple and Spotify but maybe there is a 3rd party app that I just haven't found yet.

I was reading that Siri works with 9 3rd party apps, but they had  "but NOT SPOTIFY" in big bold letters." - That made me laugh.

Apple will not help the competition. Pixel is a nice phone.

I did have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and liked it. But when I switched back to Apple ios seemed friendlier to me. But maybe now is a good chance to give android another look..

It didn't work. It locked up the infotainment (radio) system on my car. Strange as that may seem. It also didn't hear me when I talked to it..
