Deezer Now Works Directly With Apple’s HomePod Speakers

Deezer Now Integrates With HomePod’s Siri
Before you can use this feature, you must be a paid Deezer subscriber. After connecting your Deezer account to your Apple smart speaker in Deezer’s iPhone app, you can start issuing Deezer music requests directly to Siri on HomePod.

You can now use Siri on your HomePod or HomePod mini to stream music from the Deezer service natively, without having to use AirPlay on another Apple device.

According to the announcement on the Deezer blog, the integration frees HomePod owners from having to use Apple’s AirPlay feature to wirelessly route audio from the Deezer app to their smart speaker.

Paying subscribers can tell Siri on their HomePod or HomePod mini to play specific tracks, artists, albums, favorites, or playlists from Deezer’s library of 73 million songs. As a bonus, you can also use Siri voice commands to like, dislike, play on repeat, and shuffle.

This is available for Deezer’s Premium, HiHi, Family, and Student subscribers.

According to the company, Deezer on HomePod does not support podcasts, audiobooks, or live radio at this time though support for those content types should be implemented at some point down the road.

Deezer Hi-Fi Works on the HomePod, Too!
The good news doesn’t stop there—subscribers to Deezer’s Hi-Fi tier of lossless audio can use their Apple smart speaker to listen to Deezer music in high fidelity.

While that may not matter much to owners of the $99 HomePod mini, fans of the now-discontinued full-size HomePod should notice the difference given the speaker’s top-firing woofer and an array of seven tweeters, especially with two HomePods as a stereo pair.

Using Siri on HomePod for Deezer music requests works in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Mexico, Japan, and Australia. Aside from Deezer, Pandora is currently the only other third-party music service that works directly with Siri on HomePod. How to Play Music With Deezer on HomePod
Simply use your standard Siri voice commands for music requests with Deezer. For instance, “Hey Siri, play my Flow on Deezer” will play a mix of songs you’ve previously listened to on Deezer and recommended tracks based on your previous likes.

You don’t even have to append “on Deezer” to the end of the query because iOS 14.5 permits you to select a third-party provider as the default source of music instead of Apple Music. To keep things succinct, invoke Siri on your iPhone and ask the assistant to play a specific artist, song, or album (the Deezer app must be installed on your iPhone). This will produce a popup asking you to choose which supported app you would like to use as the music source. After selecting Deezer as your preferred music app, Siri will handle all music requests through Deezer going forward, even on your HomePod.

Alternatively, open the Home app on your iPhone or iPad, then hit the Home icon in the top-left corner and choose the option labeled “Settings” or “Home Settings”. From there, select your profile picture and name underneath the heading “People.” Finally, choose the option “Default Service” under “Media” and select the supported streaming service to use as your default source for music requests.
