iOS 5: Siri and iTunes Match
Authored by: airhead3 on Nov 29, '11 08:25:04AM

Just wanted to point out that to say that Siri initiates a download is misleading. iOS 5 handles requests to play songs on iTunes Match that are not already on the device by streaming them (technically I'm sure it downloads the track, but it doesn't save that download to your local music library). A track is only downloaded to the device if the iCloud download icon is selected. Siri, then, is only persisting the default behavior of the Music app when a song not resident on the device is selected.

I'm not sure if I have a different preference set somewhere in settings, but after playing the song, it appears in my music library and can be 'deleted' reverting it to downloadable status. This leads me to believe that the music is 'downloaded' not 'streamed', but I may be wrong.
