Apple Homepod

The Apple Homepod now plays internet radio. You can say "Play SomaFM Groove Salad radio" and it will play. Make sure you say SomaFM first, then the channel name, then radio. (Example: "Play SomaFM Indie Pop Rocks radio", "Play SomaFM Drone Zone radio". If you don't say radio, it may try to find a song or artists name that is the closest match, not our streams.

Google Home

Unfortnately, you'll need to use TuneIn, which means we're not available in the UK until Google allows third-party apps. But "OK Google, play SomaFM Groove Salad on TuneIn" seems to work most of the time. (Play SomaFM Channel Name on TuneIn) is the most reliable way to listen.

Marantz, Denon, Pioneer, Naim, Bose and other home entertainment systems

Go to the Radio menu and select "Search". Then search for "Soma FM" (they liste us with a space, so searching for SOMAFM won't get any results). From there you can add any SomaFM channels to your Favorites.
