    I tried telling Siri to play a song I wanted to hear for mixing purposes. iTunes started playing within the artist but not the specific song. I thought maybe it was wording. So I tried a different song by a different artist. Again, started playing within the artist but completely wrong song.

    Anyone else, or just me?

    Works for me. I say for ex "Play Mamma Mia with ABBA" (but in my language)
    iTunes start play right song.
    I´m impressed because my language is Swedish and Siri can hear the difference between english and swedish words.

    Mine refuses to work properly. I've restarted a bunch of times, not sure what else to do, but Siri will NOT play the correct song when asked.

    And here's a video. I'll ask Siri to play the song THAT'S ON THE SCREEN and she can't do it.

    works fine here. never tried that before. seems so pointless (to me); 90% of what i want to do i can do at the keyboard, vs: opening siri, saying what i want, hoping she get's it right, then re-doing those steps when she doesn't. i like that siri's finally on the mac, but have used it twice; this was that second time...

    For me it works pretty ok but Siri has sometimes problem to separate Swedish from English.
    So when there are long song titles she gets it wrong.

    Spent an hour on the phone with a senior tech guy at Apple yesterday. He had no idea what was causing it. He tested Siri on his MacBook while on the phone with me and his worked just fine. Mine simply refuses to work. He submitted a full case to his team of engineers and I'm hoping to hear back within a week.

    Full wipe and reinstall is out of the question at the moment. Too much school work.
