Finally bought a HomePod this weekend, which replaced my Echo Dot in the main living room. It would seem that, unless I’m missing something, the HomePod will not play music from my Apple Music subscription natively - it seems to need an iOS device nearby to AirPlay the music? What am I missing? Is this really the case? I’m returning it if so. Even the crappy $50 (or free, which is what it was to me) Echo Dot will allow me to play music when I’m away (Drowns outside noise out for the dog while we are away). I must be missing something. --- Post Merged, May 28, 2019 --- To be clear, on my Echo Dot I had scene that when I said “Alexa, I’m leaving” it would turn off the lights and play classical music from Apple Music (now that Apple allows the cross platform connectivity). It seems nearly impossible to do something so simple with the HomePod.
