Apple is selling a Spotify competitor for half the price - but there's a catch.

APPLE is vying for some of Spotify's users by introducing a new, half-priced plan.

But there's a catch: you'll have to let Siri handle the majority of the controls.

You can only choose what you listen to using the voice-activated assistant; you can't use the app normally.

As a result, any Siri-enabled device, such as AirPods, HomePod, and even CarPlay, can take advantage of the Apple Music Voice deal.

It's half the price of Spotify's main individual plan, which costs £9.99/dollar9.99 per month, at only £4.99/dollar4.99 per month.

Spotify is the most popular music streaming app in the world, with over 172 million users.

Apple's latest attempt to entice users is similar to Amazon Music's Single-Device Plan, which allows you to listen to music through Alexa on just one Echo speaker or Fire TV.

"Hey Siri, start my Apple Music Voice trial," says Siri, and you'll have seven days to try it out.

Then all you have to do is say "Hey Siri" each time, followed by what you want to listen to: single tracks, albums, artists, decades, genres, and moods are all available.

You'll also be able to skip tracks as often as you want.

The app's only features are the ability to see what you've recently played and find recommendations.

At a tap, you can listen to live and on-demand radio.

However, search can only be used to see if certain tracks are available; in order to play them, you must use Siri and your voice.

The new plan is now available in the United Kingdom, the United States, and 15 other countries.
