How to play Spotify music on HomePod

Spotify still does not natively support the HomePod or HomePod mini, despite Apple opening up the speakers to third-party music services in 2020. Spotify still hasn’t implemented support for HomePod so it is not possible the play music from Spotify on the HomePod itself. Spotify currently can only be streamed on the HomePod via AirPlay or Spotify connect.

HomePod, together with Apple Music and Siri, creates an entirely new way for you to discover and interact with music at home. Many Spotify users ask whether it is possible to stream Spotify on HomePod. Well, it's possible and pretty easy.

1. Make sure the Apple device you're playing from is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your HomePod.

2. Make sure the Bluetooth is on, launch Spotify, and start playing your favorite track.

3. Choose your HomePod speaker from the "Devices Available" list in the app. Or simply slide up to access your Control Center, open the music widget, tap the AirPlay icon in the upper right corner of the widget, and then select your HomePod.

Since October, 2019, you can use Siri to control Spotify on HomePod and AirPlay speakers.

Before you can use Siri with Spotify, you must install and create a Siri Shortcut specifically for Spotify.
