Apparently, Spatial Audio and Lossless will be coming to Apple Music app for Android ‘soon’ (I assume you’ll need the device to support Dolby Atmos natively, or connect to speakers or headset that does, just as with Apple devices). (One annoying thing about the app is that it doesn’t seem to know about AirPlay or ChromeCast.)

And currently HomePods are restricted to AAC, unless they are connected to AppleTV, in which case you can apparently get Spatial Audio (but not when connected to iPhone or iPad that support Dolby Atmos?). And Apple says they’ll get Lossless streaming in future update, but is mum about SA (I suspect not since they don’t have Dolby Atmos chip in them AFAICT). We’ll see.

Just got a pair of HomePod minis. The sound pretty good, maybe not enough good to replace our ancient surround sound system.

(Just verified that you get Spatial Audio with AppleTV + HomePods, though it does not show the Dolby Atmos badge in the Music app)
