[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!

This feature is one of the most requested feature (177 pages of comments currently, and I have seen that a lot of people are switching to Apple Music because of this.)


I will probably switch to it too if this feature does not get added, sad.

Or Facebook if you watch videos.
I seem to recall Apple pay artists better as well. I stand to be corrected.
I don't know if either do what Spotify do according to this link to The

Spotify is now canceled, Apple Music I'm coming


Imagine trying to make your service highly impractical for a significant share of your user base just so you can ehm, ehhh what exactly? Try to get people to use Apple Music? It's a solid strategy if that's the goal of it. Hats off to Spotify if that is indeed the strategy, worked for me at least.

Well spotted


I finally got me a Apple Music account and will check it out whether it work out with me. So say bye bye spotify. It was nice the last at least 5 years but your service s*****. 

Apple search proving much better than YouTube. I miss that. But personally
I would not now give up the advert free videos.

WHEN are you going to implement this?


Time’s UP Spotify.


I’m changing to Apple Music January 1st if this isn’t out by then.


tick tock


YouTube Premium supports HomePod fully - multiple rooms etc. Considering you get YouTube without ads as well this is a no brainer for me now.
