[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!

Spotify does not listen to its members. Spotify cried about iOS/Homepod support and once it was soon after released Spotify ignored it.


Spotify is pushing members away. You can’t cry about a feature then have it give to your on a golden platter then ignore it all for the sake of just complaining just to complain and not actually be interested in improving the users experience.

Still no news? Unbelievable.

3 days ago I purchased home pod for my home and returned it back yesterday since it does not support spotify natively. And now I realized that it was spotify not supporting homepod. I think its high time to think about changing my music subscription to Apple music…

Come on Spotify... Just put native support for HomePods, how hard is it? Your community has asked for this for 4 years now!

I can't see another reason for not doing that other than pure stubbornness!!!
