Tidal Gains Siri Integration on iPhone and iPad, But Still Lacks HomePod Support

Tidal has added Siri support in the latest update to its iOS app, meaning iPhone and iPad users can now ask Apple's virtual assistant to play content from the music streaming service.

As noted by XDA Developers, the added support doesn't appear to extend to the HomePod or HomePod mini, which means Tidal users still can't take advantage of the ‌HomePod‌'s ‌Siri‌ voice controls to navigate their tunes and playlists.

As things stand, ‌Siri‌ on ‌HomePod‌ works with Apple Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and Pandora. Apart from Tidal, the only other major streaming service that doesn't yet work with ‌Siri‌ on ‌HomePod‌ is Spotify, a fact which has left users critical of the company. The reasoning behind Spotify's refusal to adopt ‌‌HomePod‌‌ support remains unknown.

Pretty easy answer, it is one way Spotify can "stick it" to Apple with next to no consequences.

I thought the same, but music quality is excellent on it. I would rank Tidal and Apple Music tops in quality of music.

I own a Tesla and Tesla does not have an Apple Music app, which I would prefer, so I did subscribe to Tidal and was surprised how good it was.

The real news is that TiDAL still exists.

I used the trial for two days, trying to figure out how to upload my local files. Support told me it was impossible. I cancelled the trial. It wasn't fun while it lasted, though!
