Nice information for the devoted few Apple House of us who use YouTube Music (I do know you’re on the market!) — now you can combine the service along with your HomePods and both ask Siri to play songs utilizing YouTube Music or set the service as your default supply. 9to5Google spotted a Reddit put up from YouTube Music product head Brandon Bilinski announcing the update. You could find instructions for setting up the integration on a help web page for the service.
The checklist of third-party music companies which you can combine with HomePods remains to be fairly lean. Till now, the largest alternate options to Apple Music which have added that help have been most likely Deezer and Pandora. You may finally ask Siri to play music with Spotify on HomePods, however the firm nonetheless doesn’t help connecting the app to Apple’s audio system.
To attach YouTube Music to your HomePods, you’ll have to both have a YouTube Music or YouTube Premium account. Open the app, faucet your person icon within the prime proper, then go to Settings > Linked Apps > Join with HomePod. Then, to set it as your default, open the House App in your iPhone or iPad, faucet the settings icon within the higher proper there, and go to House Settings > Your username (within the Individuals part) > Default Service.
When you don’t see the “Linked Apps” choice in YouTube Music, don’t fear — I didn’t both at first. After force-closing the app and re-opening it, nevertheless, it was there. You might also have to ensure you’ve obtained the newest model of the app.
