Deezer is the most current music streaming service to announce native HomePod integration. When the HomePod very first launched, it required an Apple Music membership to play music, without using AirPlay. But last year, Apple opened the APIs to support third-party services …
The API was presented with iOS 14.3, last fall. Pandora was the first service to get onboard. Spotify shared its aggravation to the European Union in 2017 that it had been locked out of the HomePod. The company is yet to announce any plans to adopt the API now that is offered.
Today, Deezer is revealing that they are supporting the API. This means users will be able to configure Deezer as their default music service on HomePod mini (and the now-discontinued big HomePod).
When established, you can ask the HomePod via Siri to play playlists, albums and songs. Instead of utilizing Apple Music, the system will stream directly from the Deezer service.
Deezer states the HomePod can even stream premium lossless music if you are a Deezer HiFi customer. However, the combination does not extend to Deezers podcasts or live audio content; its music only.
To get begun, download the most recent variation of the Deezer app on your iPhone and make sure you are upgraded to iOS 14.3 or later on. Deezer boasts around 16 million active users with a streaming library of 73 million tunes.
