Airplay and apple music

Has anyone have experience or know The possibilities of Homey with airplay and Apple music?

I don’t think it’s airplay capable…

with ios 13 it would be possible to run rules in homekit , for example if ( virtual device/ sensor) … then homepod play (song from music libary , …)

I was looking for a Homepod API last week… was thinking about buying one, but couldn’t find any info on an API.
Which means it’s not possible to do anything from Homey. I went for a Sonos One instead, for this reason.

I think there used to be an Airplay app for Homey but that was a reverse engineered API call, which didn’t work after a while when Apple changed their setup.

I love Apple but I really wished they released some API for some of their services, to be able to include it in smart home systems.

thats wrong you can control a homepod or airplay device with xml but it give no homey app that can do this , but on homebridge there are some , it it not easy to configure but it is possible to play streams , audio , control (play , stop , vol )

so z.b sieht eine config in homebridge aus. mit den entsprechenden plugins ,
diese infos findest du aber auch im developer bereich von apple.

Es ist sogar möglich mit hilfe von BT am RPi diesen so zu konfigurieren das er das BT signal an den Homepod weiterleitet via airplay protocol . somit kann auch ein Android oder sonstiges via BT audio darauf abspielen .
