How to Play Spotify Music on HomePod

Read the article to find out 2 different methods to play Spotify songs on HomePod.

Apple HomePod is Apple's smart speaker for playing music, interacting with Siri, and controlling your smart home. It's a compact Wi-Fi device that includes a powerful set of speakers and microphones to provide a top-notch music experience in any room. One thing to note is that the only streaming music service supported natively on the HomePod is Apple Music, including Beats 1 Radio. At this point, you may have a question, what if you don't have an Apple Music subscription and you mainly use Spotify? Is there any way to enjoy Spotify music on your HomePod? In this case, we introduce 2 practical ways to help you listen to Spotify tracks on HomePod. Just read on for more details.

Method 1: Play Spotify Tracks on HomePod with AirPlay

  • Step 1. Open the Spotify app on your iPhone.
  • Step 2. Play a song or playlist.
  • Step 3. Tap the Speaker icon.
  • tap the speaker icon
  • Step 4. Tap AirPlay or Bluetooth under Select a device.
  • tap airplay or bluetooth
  • Step 5. Select the HomePod on which you want to play music.

This method is the easiest, but there are two disadvantages. The first is: that it takes at least 2 seconds for HomePod to respond when you connect your iPhone to HomePod and open Spotify and click play. The second is that it can only perform some simple voice commands. Operations such as selecting albums, artists, and song lists cannot be performed.
