I just got a HomePod a few days ago, and while I love the sound (no problem with reduced bass on 11.3), it sometimes pauses songs randomly when played from a playlist. This happens at the beginning of a song, after 1 or 2 seconds, and when I say “hey Siri, play”, it will continue from where it stops. Strangely this is not an issue when I play songs from a radio or specific albums, or via AirPlay. It can be as frequent as every other song, so a bit annoying. I tried resetting it but it doesn’t help. I don’t think it’s a problem with my internet connection since streaming Apple Music via other devices like Apple TV or iPhone is absolutely fine. I’ve spoken to Apple tech advisors who will report this issue to their engineers, and hopefully will call me back with a solution. But in the meantime, has anyone encountered this problem and manage to fix it?
