Siri support for AirPlay on HomePod

In iOS 17 and HomePod software version 17, people can now use Siri to start an AirPlay session from HomePod and play media (like music, audiobooks, podcasts, radio, and meditations) using apps installed on their iPhone or iPad. Any app that adopts SiriKit Media Intents and AirPlay works with HomePod.

Apps adopt SiriKit by building an extension that communicates with Siri, even when your app isn’t running. This extension registers with specific domains and intents that it can handle. Siri handles all of the interaction, including the voice and natural language recognition, and works with your extension to get information and handle requests.
