Play music with CarPlay
Use Siri or open Music in CarPlay to play music that’s available on your iPhone—including songs, artists, albums, playlists, and Radio.
Ask Siri. Say something like:
“Let’s hear the Acoustic playlist”
“Play ‘You Need to Calm Down’ by Taylor Swift”
“Play more songs like this one”
“Play the rest of this album”
“Skip this song”
“Repeat this song”
“Shuffle this playlist”
“Tune into ESPN Radio”
“Show me what’s playing”
If Siri doesn’t find what you asked for, be more specific. For example, say “Play the radio station ‘Pure Pop’” rather than saying “Play ‘Pure Pop.’”
You can also use the controls on your vehicle’s steering wheel, buttons on the Now Playing screen, and CarPlay Dashboard to control music playback.
Note: If you’re viewing CarPlay Dashboard, tap to see pages of all of your CarPlay apps, including Music.

Display controls to create a custom station based on the current song and to rate the current song.

On some systems, Now Playing displays only a partial list of choices while you’re driving. To choose among options not in the list, select More at the bottom of the screen, or use Siri by pressing and holding the voice command button on your steering wheel.
You can also tell Apple Music what you love and dislike to improve its future recommendations. Use Siri to say something like “I like this station.” Or use your vehicle’s built-in controls to select , then select Love or Dislike.
