[iOS] Implement Native HomePod Support


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!

When? Why so long? When? Tnx!

Yes. It is absolutely Ekstrordinary.

This is now seriously pathetic!  Spotify you are just useless and selfish.


I switched to AM some month ago and always thought the UI is not as good as spotifys. But now I have to say I am getting used to it and I think I will not come back and stop watching this thread…



it's over two years of this request, and on iOS 16 Spotify still doesn’t support Siri on HomePod. 😞

I don’t know if Spotify doesn’t want to support it or Apple blocks it but please! There are thousands and thousands of people waiting for it! :’(

We believe it is Spotify that is the problem.

I wanted this implementation to be able to use the same music service on my Home Pod and Google Nest Hub Max, but finally Google(or Apple. I don't know) added Apple music for Google smart speakers in my country(Romania), so I don't care anymore if Spotify will implement this feature. Now Apple Music will be my main music service because it works everywhere. Finally I can stop follow this thread.

Good luck for all the people who are still waiting for this feature to be implemented!


My conspiracy theory? Spotify won't add new iOS-specific features because it would hurt their lawsuit against Apple. It's the only reason they would ignore the 5k+ upvotes asking for HomePod support after 2+ years on their ideas community.


Spotify is hard to love anymore. They’ve had 5 years to remove that crappy proprietary share sheet. 3 years to add Shortcuts support. 4 years to add Airplay 2 support.


20k less songs - many are DJ mixes that are available on Apple Music and Soundcloud. No DJ mix track listings. No Lossless. No spatial mixing. Now they're focusing on podcasts and audiobooks, which I don't really care about.


Truly is time to give up on them. Wish my family would. I've moved to
Apple. Works on HomePod. Better sound through a Hi Fi.

Guys! Has this finally been implemented?! I don’t have a HomePod/HomePod mini myself, so I can’t verify it. But check out this YouTube short by the user Levan:


Here he is demonstrating the hand off feature using Spotify and a HomePod mini. Which he states have been added in the newest HomePod OS, 15.6 that rolled out yesterday.


Weirdly enough, neither Apple or Spotify seem to mention anything about this. In addition, support for Spotify to implement this has as we all know been there for a very long time, so I don’t understand how this feature “came with the new HomePod OS”.


I’m deeply invested in this, so if anyone could confirm or deny this, and also check if more Siri/HomeKit features are implemented, it would be greatly appreciated!
