The killer feature is that it works with Siri. Just wake up Siri and have her play an artist or song.￼
"Play some Rolling Stones" "Play Madonna" "Play Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone" "Play Hotel California"
Just Add Apple Watch
￼The Apple Watch also works as remote for the iPhone, which allows you to go hands-free. Anyone stuck doing the after dinner cleanup will appreciate this feature. A twist of the wrist and say:￼
"Hey Siri, play some U2" "Hey Siri, next song" "Hey Siri, pause music"￼
Of course, Siri isn’t perfect. I can’t get her to play “Kashmir by Led Zeppelin”.
Finally, I have to say that I like using Siri as a remote so much that now I wish I could use her to control my Apple TV.
