    HomePod I can't AirPlay to my new HomePod from Music App from my Mac

    Hello, I've just finished setting up my HomePod. Everything works fine, except when I try to use it as an AirPlay speaker from the Music app on my Mac. It keeps telling me that "only people who share a home in the Home app can control this speaker" (my translation, don't know if that's the...

    HomePod Homepods auto-grouping overnight

    As the title says, I have three Homepods in my home that have this somewhat annoying glitch where they seem to want to huddle together in groups. Sometimes all of them are grouped, sometimes just a couple. So, go to bed at night: all ungrouped. Wake up (but not every day, so is inconcistent)...

    All Devices AirPlay to HomePod from iPad/iPhone No Longer Plays Just Sound

Now if I use any app: Spectrum, Infuse Pro, Apple TV+, anytime I select one of my HomePod's to play just the...

    HomePod Siri Working VERY Poorly After Update to 13.2.1

    Yes, I didn't update my HomePod to 13.2 and waited for the 13.2.1 which initially seemed to work. Unfortunately, it now seems that my HomePod has lost the ability to respond to many requests. When I ask for the weather it just says, "Sorry, something's wrong. Please try again." When I ask about...

    HomePod On the HomePod, can you play music as a wake-up alarm?

    This wasn't possible under the initial release nearly two years ago, it was still missing in the iOS 12 update, and now that we have iOS 13 is this STILL not possible? What I want is a way to say, "Hey Siri, play my Morning Playlist at 7:15AM." Interestingly enough, my $30 Google Mini can do...

    Is there any way to make Siri less verbose? I had an echo dot connected to my Philips hue lights and whenever I gave a command it just did it but on my HomePod Siri likes to tell me all the steps it is going through when I’d rather they just happened without me being told. I want to say the...

    AirPlay to Stereo Paired HomePods

    So, I thought that Catalina was supposed to bring AirPlay 2 support to MacOS. Yet, when I look at audio outputs from my iMac, I only see one of my paired HomePods. Am I missing something obvious?
