[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!

Any update on this 

Apparently we need to complain somewhere other than Spotify's own forum.
Twitter I think may have been one of the places. Apparently billionaire
entrepreneurs can't work out thatpeople might want to use a smart speaker
in a smart way.
Except of course they can.


It has been almost 4 years since they launched an entire website to complain about Apple's practices including Apple not restricting them from creating a Homepod integration. Apple, however, made this possible a long time ago and yet here we are, 5 months into 2023, still waiting for Spotify to do something. Not even an update from them since mid-2021. Clowns.


We need Spotify support on the HomePod! It really sucks having to connect via AirPlay all the time. I just want to ask Siri to play a song on Spotify without having to pull up my phone. 


It’s been years now, Spotify needs to put their money where their mouth is and build proper AirPlay and HomePod support instead of whining about Apple.


Come on... first complaining its not open and then spending years without any update to the customers.

I should switch to Apple Music instead.


Is this still in progress?



I think it never was in progress. 🤔 

Never started!... so, no, not in progress. 😞

I would also love to have this feature finally. If Spotify won't be natively available on Apple products like the Homepod and with a good performance (on the Apple Watch it could be better), I see myself and my family switching to Apple Music. Quite sad, as I am a Spotify user for almost 10 years.
