Streaming music service Deezer has announced it now supports Siri on Apple’s HomePod and HomePod mini speakers.
Apple users can now set Deezer as the default music service and ask Siri to play songs from the service’s 73 million tracks. The company says subscribers with iOS 14.3 and higher will be able to use Siri to control Deezer, by saying “Hey Siri, play my Flow,” for example.
With Deezer as the default music service, you’ll be able to play specific tracks, artists, albums, favourites or playlists. Those that haven’t set Deezer as the default service just need to add “on Deezer” at the end of Siri requests.
“Our listeners don’t have to compromise on audio quality thanks to HomePod. HiFi users can still enjoy all of their favorite tunes in true lossless audio. But, don’t worry, even if you don’t have HiFi, Deezer on Apple HomePod is the perfect at home companion when you need to multitask or want to give your eyes and fingers a break,” said Nicolas Pinoteau, Director of Partnership Solutions at Deezer, in a statement.
To change the default music app for HomePod and HomePod mini, launch the Home app on your iOS device, tap your name under ‘People’, then under the ‘Default Service’ under ‘Media’, pick Deezer.
Deezer says the launch of support on HomePod and HomePod mini is available in Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, UK and the USA.
