[iOS] Implement Native HomePod Support

Details

Just this week at WWDC (June 22, 2020), Apple announced support for third party music services on the HomePod.  I'm requesting that Spotify implement native support for the HomePod such that one or even multiple HomePods will appear in the "Connect to a device" menu on any Apple device WITHOUT having to connect through Airplay.  This will also allow users to ask Siri to play songs from Spotify on their HomePod(s). 

 

Apple is opening up the HomePod, and I know there are many other HomePod users that would love to have native Spotify support on their speaker.

I’m also waiting. Can only hope this won’t take as long as the Apple Watch version with streaming capabilities which is in beta.

 

It’s kinda hypocritical suing Apple for antitrust and then being slow af and not taking advantage of the APIs Apple finally provides.

Waiting for this to switch from Apple Music to Spotify
