Apart from this, Microsoft’s digital assistant received more abilities to control music playback on more apps. Now, you can use your voice to control your music on iHeartRadio and TuenIn Radio. However, the functionality is currently only available for users in the United States.

You can use these commands:

  • Play <Artist/Track/Title/Genre> on
  • Play Drake on iHeartRadio
  • Play Christmas music on iHeartRadio
  • Play NPR Hourly News on TuneIn
  • Play jazz music on TuneIn
  • Play <Frequency/Call Letters> on
  • Play 90.3 on iHeartRadio
