    Suddenly, HomePod refuses to play music directly -

    After asking Siri, she'll respond in the affirmative but nothing plays. Trying to do it through the music app and it'll flash before changing to "Not Playing". Works if streamed through my phone, tho.

    Have tried restarting, signing in and out of iCloud and Apple Music - only thing I haven't done is completely removing HomePod from my network and reattaching it because I don't have time.

    Talk about annoying thing to try and fix in this the morning.

    Have you updated to the current 11.3 version of the software? I had your issue and it is fixed for me (and others) now.

    Randomly started working again today - was on 11.3 the entire time.

    Not sure what changed. Weird!
