HomePod to support third-party music streaming services

The HomePod smart speaker finally gets support for third-party music streaming services. 

The feature was highlighted in a slide on new HomeKit features during WWDC 2020 where the HomePod speaker has a liner that reads "third-party music services". This means that third-party music streaming services such as Spotify can be set as the default music service on the HomePod.

The HomePod currently only allows the streaming of third-party music services via AirPlay from an iPhone, iPad or Mac.
