[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!

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!!!


Please allow native HomePod support on Spotify! Even if this is just a premium-only feature, it’s still better than asking Siri to play something, hoping Siri finds what you’re looking for, then dealing with delays when pausing, skipping, or changing the volume.


It seems that Apple has opened up a bit, and is letting Spotify be on HomePod. If this is true, I’m not sure what the wait is.


I want to ask Siri “Play Summer Pop Mix on Spotify” (maybe not even have to say on Spotify!) and Siri is able to find it, and I can listen to it without delays to the controls.


Right now, I’m feeling the urge to switch to Apple Music so I can use my HomePod, but I really don’t like their interface, but I like Spotify’s interface. I also like how I can pair Spotify with my Philips Hue bulbs, and Spotify’s end-of-year wrap up.


Anyway, on behalf of myself and a majority of Spotify subscribers, we hope that this gets implemented.


This Live Idea is in top 10 by number of votes. 
The other ideas may have voters from different platforms.. For this one, it’s just the HomePod users.  


Switched all of my HomePods to Apple Music and have no regrets. Spotify has slept on this issue so long they are never going to integrate.


I’m enjoying the much larger music selection and hi-fi audio quality (another thing Spotify has promised and not delivered). So if you have HomePods and are on the fence make the switch, nothing better at Spotify anymore.


@outofspc what software did you use to migrate your playlists to apple?


@dank13 I used Playlisty for Apple Music, was worth the minimal cost ($3) for the pro version over the free sources out there. I think you can do a limited transfer or demo to see results before buying it, can’t remember.


I can’t believe this will have to be the reason to leave Spotify after 6 years! How sad.. just like many others here first I thought Apple was the blocker but now that knowing there was enough time implement this but no appetite I need to solve it somehow.. homepod is also problematic with their connection issues, dropping airplay constantly especially for those using a mesh network, however a native support for Spotify could simply solve this issue.
