  • New Apple Job Opening Points Toward Increased Apple Music Support with Siri

    A recently posted Apple job opening is suggesting that the company is looking to expand links between Siri and Apple Music. It’s likely that the link between the two lies within the form of new voice commands. The listing calls for a Siri software engineer with a general interest in music. The person is expected to “help extend Siri’s integration with Apple Music,” primarily by designing and implementing natural language interactions and work flow.” The candidates for the job are required to have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science and five years of industry experience.

    For those of you who didn’t know, integration with Siri is one of the key differentiators for Apple Music from services such as Rdio and Spotify. Several voice commands are already built in and cover just not basic playback options but also some that involve contextual cues and/or information from separate databases. Siri is set to prioritize popular albums when given common search terms, particularly when it comes to discovering which songs topped charts on a given day, month or even year.

    It’s likely that the new commands will be released sometime in 2016 despite being underway. This is largely attributed to the full slate of improvements which are set to be released this fall. Apple’s iOS 9 is set to give Apple Music a redesigned graphical interface, with the service appearing on Android and Apple TV for the first time as well.

    We’ll have to wait for more concrete information by being patient.

      I think they should get Siri working properly first before they do that. I find Siri a waste of time as it barely works first time or I get feed up and just use my fingers
