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..

OK Hound, play [song name] by [song singer] on Spotify

The song on Spotify should have been downloaded to your iPhone and not accessed via streaming.

I cannot test the above as I do not have a Spotify account or a device with iOS 10.

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..

In such case, I have no further advise as there is no other third party app I know which can act like siri and can control Spotify.

Besides, if you disconnect your iPhone from your infotainment system, will it work?
