The Citation speakers can be added to the Apple Home app (Apple Home-kit).

Before we start

  • First make sure that your CITATION speakers have been fully set up via the Google Home app.
  • Update your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the most recent iOS version. If you want to use the Home app on a Mac, update your Mac to the most recent macOS version. 
  • To be able to add speakers that are compatible with AirPlay 2, you must be the owner of the home in the Home app. Shared users cannot add these devices to the Home app. 
  • On your iOS device, go to ‘Settings’ > ‘[your name]’ > ‘iCloud’, scroll down and enable iCloud Keychain and ‘Home’ to edit Home users and use accessories on all your iOS devices. 
  • If you want to manage smart TVs and speakers in more than one home that you have configured in the Home app, allow your Home to use your location. 
  • Check whether your speaker is compatible with AirPlay 2.

Adding speakers to the Home app 

Add every speaker in your home to the Home app. Then you can play anything you want wherever you want. 

Adding AirPlay 2-compatible speakers:

  1. Open the Home app, tap + and then tap ‘Add Accessory’. 
  2. Tap ‘Don’t Have a Code or Can’t Scan?’ and then tap the speaker. 
  3. Wait until your speaker has been added. Give your speaker a name and choose a room where it is located. 
  4. Tap ‘Done’.

Organising your speakers per room

Organise your speakers per room in the Home app on your iOS device or Mac. You can then use Siri to control music and play it throughout your home. And ask Siri to play what you want to watch, where you want to watch it.
