I was surprised to accidentally discover that one can stream to their HomePod over LTE or off the home WiFi network.

Homepod controls are not available but volume can be controlled via the phone volume buttons.

Also discovered by bringing down the control center and pressing on the icon in the music widget any app output can be streamed whether or not airplay is supported from that app.

ios 13.3.1.

I pleasantly happened across it on 13.3. Not sure when it started to be possible though. Needed to get my dog’s attention when he was on my bed with muddy paws lol. Could come in use for other things.

Can you please elaborate on your third paragraph. What icon are you talking about and do you mean streamed to the HomePod? Thanks.
