Two Ways to Play Spotify on HomePod

Apple always locks users into its own ecosystem. And Apple’s new smart speaker – Homepod is no exception. We can only stream music on HomePod through an Apple Music subscription, iTunes purchases, or iTunes Match content uploaded to iCloud Music Library.

It seems that listening to music on HomePod is impossible if you are a Spotify, instead of Apple Music, subscriber. But actually, it’s still available to play Spotify on Homepod even if you are a third-party music service subscriber just like Spotify.

Play Spotify on HomePod

Here we are going to show you two ways to listen to Spotify songs and playlists on your iPhone to Homepod step by step.

Method 1. Stream Spotify on HomePod through AirPlay

Using AirPlay is the easiest way to listen to Spotify on HomePod. But the downside of it is that you're not going to have full Siri support. You can’t ask HomePod to play a certain track on Spotify like Apple Music. You can only skip tracks, play or pause music, and that’s all. But at least you are able to enjoy Spotify songs on Apple's HomePod without subscribing Apple Music Service.

Note: Please make sure your device be on the same WiFi network as the HomePod with this method.

Method 2, which enables you to get full use of Siri support just like Apple Music, is a more perfect way to play Spotify songs on HomePod.

Method 2: Play Spotify on HomePod with NoteBurner

Using Siri, we can only control our Apple Music songs and playlists. Thus to download music from Spotify and then transfer them to iTunes Library will be a perfect solution to play Spotify on HomePod without limits. And NoteBurner will help you achieve it easily. Let’s get more details:
