[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!

Having 2 HomePods (one upstairs, and the other downstairs) and listening to Spotify on my MacBook is currently a small nightmare as I need to first connect my Spotify Mac App to my iPhone, and then from my iPhone to the HomePods.

 

I would like to request that the Spotify Mac App would natively support AirPlay and Bluetooth devices as it does on the iPhone/Mobile App. It would make it easier to have both HomePods as output devices, and I wouldn't have to link the music via my iPhone to do so. 

 

It is possible to connect to one HomePod via macOS sound settings (output > HomePod) but it only allows me to connect to one HomePod and not both. 

 

I can't say if this is a limitation of macOS (Catalina) or simply not supported in the current version of Spotify (1.1.44.538.g8057de92).

FYI, Apple just released this talk today covering the HomePod integration using SiriKit:
