[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.

Please upvote this idea to garner attention for it.  Thank you Spotify and the Spotify community.  Let's get this implemented so it's ready for general iOS 14 release this September!

I‘m using Spotify for many years and love it. But if there is no quick solution I’ll have to change to Apple Musik. So please make this happen.

Seems it is possible to get Spotify to listen. Note the articles in the media about the shuffle button default.

Pity they won't listen to over 4000 voters.

Here another user heading to Apple Music. I have 3 HomePod at home and I want to be able to ask Siri to play a song. Very disappointed with you, Spotify.

Do it Spotify!  This is so sad that we have to keep waiting.  About to pull the plug and go to Apple Music!

I've been a Spotify use since 2011 and will be moving to Apple Music over this. I've waited for years. Enough is enough.

One of the many reasons I switched to Apple Music. I don't use my Spotify subscription anymore for this reason and the lack of Hi-Fi.
