As pointed out by the folks over at MacRumors, a new Audio Sources section has been added to HomePod’s tech specs page by Apple, listing all the ways in which the smart speaker is able to stream audio.
Below is a complete list of sources supported by HomePod:
- Apple Music: HomePod users can ask Siri to play any of over 45 million songs available on Apple Music. A subscription is required.
- iTunes Music: HomePod users can ask Siri to play any songs, albums, or audiobooks purchased from the iTunes Store.
- iCloud Music Library: HomePod users can ask Siri to play any songs uploaded to a user’s iCloud Music Library, including songs imported from other sources such as CDs, with an Apple Music or iTunes Match subscription.
- Beats 1: HomePod users can ask Siri to play Apple’s official radio station.
- Podcasts: HomePod users can ask Siri to play any podcast episodes from the iTunes podcast directory.
- AirPlay: HomePod users can use AirPlay to play other audio from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Mac. AirPlay 2, coming later this year, is only required to stream audio from these sources to multiple HomePods.
