    Recently got Apple music... I have a BUNCH of live and studio music in my library on my phone and I was wondering if theres a way to play a song from my library using siri (like you can when you dont have apple music)!

    I'm finding that when I ask siri to play a song it streams it instead of playing it from my library. is there any way to change that?! Its especially annoying because like I said I listen to a lot of live music and siri will usually play the wrong version when I ask for something live and because the version already on my phone is most likely of higher quality.

    not sure, but what if u make songs available offline which will download the songs to iOS, then ask siri to play them.

    Anything u add to your library with icloud library enabled will be either matched or uploaded andthus will be steamed.

    The only way i know is to turn off icloud music library, which won't give u access to Apple music, but at least you'll have access to your local songs, which would work.

    Thanks for the reply. So you're saying if I turn iCloud music off then I won't be able to use siri for apple music at all? Interestinggggg.


    They should just make it if I say "Play _____ from my library" it does it!!

    "hey siri, play abba from my library" (this limits to just what's in my library vs. Apple's library)
