HomePod is a breakthrough speaker that adapts to its location and delivers high-friendly audio wherever it’s playing. Together with Siri, it creates an entirely new way for you to discover and interact with music at home. And it can help you with everyday tasks — all with just your voice.

Although HomePod features its good audio quality, there has been quite a fuss made of Apple’s limitation to the HomePod. As HomePod is developed by Apple Inc, it is more compatible with Apple Music.

However, Spotify is the most popular streaming system on earth -- and that streaming Spotify music on HomePod can be a bit fiddly. We thought we’d talk you how to play Spotify music on HomePod easily.

Method One AirPlay Spotify app to Your HomePod

You could effortlessly stream music, videos and games from any Apple device to your purchased speakers via AirPlay, but you cannot enjoy the playing with your voice better. Without iTunes and Siri, this significant option may be no longer so perfect.

Step 1. Make sure your HomePod and iPhone or iPad are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 2. Launch the Spotify app on your iPhone or iPad and choose the track playing you want to get things started with.

Alternatively, if you're already listening to Spotify on your iPhone or iPad and you want to switch the sound to your smart speaker, you don’t need to open the Spotify app to do so. From "Control Center", the player interface will show whatever song you’re currently streaming on your phone.

Step 3. Click the 'Devices Available’ button at the bottom, and then select 'More Devices'. Or simply 3D Touch (or long press if you’ve got an older iPhone or iPad) and press the AirPlay button.

Step 4. Choose your HomePod, and the song from Spotify will be streamed on your HomePod via AirPlay.

Otherwise, there is also another workaround. You can play any audio from your Mac, Spotify and more, over AirPlay to your HomePod - but you’ll need to set your System Preferences. From there, choose 'Sound' and choose your HomePod as the device for sound output.

Spotify voice commands for HomePod

After completing the connection, you can send voice commands to control the Spotify playback.

Here are the ones you’ll have a try:

"Hey Siri, turn the volume up."

"Hey Siri, turn the volume down."

"Hey Siri, pause this song."

"Hey Siri, resume the song."

"Hey Siri, play the next song."

Method Two Transfer Spotify Music to Your iTunes Library

iTunes is a good partner for both Siri and HomePod. You can ask Siri to play any music on your iTunes library. If you want to enjoy the function of voice control better, you can transfer your music from Spotify to iTunes library.

Due to the music on Spotify protected by DRM (digital right management), you are not allowed to stream Spotify music on any other devices or players directly. That’s not a big concern for us, because we can get rid of the protection with the help of DRM removal tools.
