Hi!


Apple announced during WWDC 2020 that in the upcoming Homepod update with iOS 14, users can now select other music service provides as the default instead of Apple music (similar to how Deezer can be selected as the default with Alexa at the moment). I’m assuming that third-party services will also have to update their apps accordingly to work.

 

I hope Deezer will also be part of this as well, would be nice to use Deezer as the default music service provide on my Homepod (or even better, for all of my iOS devices).

Thanks a lot for supporting us with this integration @syuketron - I'll be forwarding your comments to our product teams in charge of a potential integration :wink:

Are there any news on this? I really can’t wait to use Deezer on our Homepods!!

Hey @Tyraenor 

Thank you for your contribution to this integration. We don't have updates on this yet, our teams are focused on developing an Apple Watch standalone app at the moment. Subscribe to the topic for future updates :wink:

Thanks for the reply. But please guys do this, as I do not want to switch to Apple Music or Spotify, just because Deezer will “sleep” enabling this.

 

I really like Deezer (the CarPlay app is not working well, though) and the only reason that triggers me to switch is not being able to directly play Deezer on our HomePods.

Sure thing @Tyraenor we believe this is a good integration too, we'll just need more time to put our resources on this. Stay tuned :thumbsup_tone2:

Do you have a roadmap for getting this sorted, this has become more than a nice feature, its a requirement. Pandora have done it so whats the hold up, would also nice to beat spotify to it.

Skip the watch app, that surely is lower priority!

Sure thing @Tyraenor we believe this is a good integration too, we'll just need more time to put our resources on this. Stay tuned :thumbsup_tone2:

Any updates as the HomePod minis are now available?
