How to Use Siri to Stop Playing Music?

Share This:

Welcome to our blog post about Siri and how it can be used to stop playing music! Siri is an intelligent personal assistant developed by Apple Inc. It uses voice recognition technology to understand natural language commands from users and respond with relevant information. With the latest updates, Siri has become even more powerful and can now control music playback on your iPhone or other Apple devices.

Siri can be used to stop playing music on your iPhone in a number of different ways. First, you can use the Autoplay feature available in the Music app. Simply tap the Autoplay icon (the one that looks like an infinity symbol) to disable it and the current song will immediately stop playing.

You can also use Siri’s voice command feature to control music playback on your iPhone. Just say “Hey Siri” followed by your request such as “pause,” “stop,” or “skip this song.” If you have Amazon Music installed on your device, simply say “Hey Siri” and then make your request as normal.

Finally, if you want more control over what gets played or want to customize a playlist, you can create one in the Music app and then ask Siri for specific songs or artists that you want it to play. This is especially useful if you’re looking for something new or don’t want to listen to a particular artist or genre all the time.

We hope this blog post has been helpful in teaching you about how Siri can be used as a way of controlling music playback on your iPhone or other Apple device! Thanks for reading!

Stopping Siri from Playing Music

To get Siri to stop playing music, you can simply say “Hey Siri, stop” and it will immediately pause the current song. You can also say “Hey Siri, turn off music” or “Hey Siri, exit music.” If you just want to skip the current song but keep playing the rest of the playlist, you can say “Hey Siri, skip this song.”

Playing Music with Siri

To get Siri to play music, first, activate Siri on your iPhone. You can then ask Siri to play any song, artist, album, playlist, or station from Apple Music. For example, you can say “Play something I like” or “Play my Chill Mix”. You can also use Siri to control music playback in the Music app. With these commands, you can pause and resume playback, skip songs, go back and forth between tracks, adjust the volume, and more.

Can Siri Be Used While Playing Music?

Turning Off Siri Auto Listen

To turn off Siri Auto Listen, go to Settings > Siri & Search and then toggle off the Listen for “Hey Siri” option. This will turn off the feature that allows Siri to automatically listen when you say “Hey Siri”. You can always turn it back on by toggling the same switch.

Using Siri with Spotify Instead of Apple Music

To get Siri to use Spotify instead of Apple Music, you need to set Spotify as your default music app. To do this, open the Settings app and tap Music. Then tap on “Default Music App” and select Spotify. Now when you ask Siri to play a song or artist, it will pull from your Spotify library instead of Apple Music. To make sure Siri is using Spotify, just say “Hey Siri” followed by your command and then “On Spotify”.


In conclusion, using Siri to stop playing music is an easy and convenient way to control your music experience. With just a simple command of “Hey Siri,” you can pause, skip songs, or even disable autoplay. It’s also possible to use Siri to play music on your iPhone, letting Apple Music act as your personal DJ. All in all, Siri is a great tool for managing your music playback and providing you with a personalized listening experience.
