    Anyone tried out asking Siri to play some music?

    I was expecting to be able to say an Artist and it'd play all songs by that Artist. Instead it seems to pick one song, you ask it to 'skip' it says it's skipping but just repeats the song.

    Same goes if you ask it to play an album, it plays one song.


    Am I using it wrong?

    Anyone tried this out?
    Would be interested to know if others experience the same issue.

    Cheers,

    It would be weird if that did not work because the previous iPhones with more basic voice commands can do that.

    Works fine for me...

    "Play songs by Led Zeppelin"
    ---- Starts playing "When the Levee Breaks"

    "Skip"

    --- Starts playing "No Quarter"

    Seems to work fine for me.

    Hmm I was telling it "Play Pink Floyd".
    The skip would then 'skip' to the same song.

    Telling it to "Play songs by .." works though.


    Thanks 'Captainobvvious'.
