    So I have 3 HomePod's and as of yesterday one of them has stopped working. The + and - signs on the top just keep flashing and no matter what I do and how many resets I do it simply won't work.

    So I'm going to have to take one of my HomePods in for exchange - but I just hope this isn't a sign of things to come...

    Will be interesting to see how reliable these will be longer term - as in my situation I have a 33% failure rate !

    I'm a bit nervous about the reliability now...

    How long have you had it? What kind of environment was it used in? It would be interesting to identify if there are any risk factors to HomePod longevity.

    I've had it since release day.. All it has done is sit on a shelf in my living room... Never been moved...
