YouTube Music is now officially supported on Apple HomePod

Before you head to the comments section to tell us that playing music from YouTube Music on the Apple HomePod has been possible for a while now – we know. This is because the ability to cast audio from the app to the HomePod device is actually something you can do.

The YouTube Music product team recently announced deeper integration with the HomePod, and specifically its voice commands. Now Premium and Music Premium subscribers can integrate YouTube Music as a playback service within HomePod. It launches voice commands like “Hey Siri, play music on YouTube.” Your phone no longer needs to be involved in the playback process.

For the integration to work, you must be a Premium or Music Premium subscriber, as noted. Download the latest YouTube Music app and go to Settings > Connected Apps > Connect to HomePod. If YouTube Music is your preferred streaming service, you can set it as the default for your HomePod.

This is done through the Home app (on your iOS device) > Settings > Tap Username > Tap Default Service and choose YouTube Music. After that, you can just use short commands like “Hey Siri, play music” without mentioning “YouTube Music”.
