I had high hopes for the HomePod but after struggling with them for almost a year now I'm just tired of dealing with problems. They are constantly cutting out, refusing to control my home kit lights (when all my other devices work fine 100% of the time), airplay streaming with spotify doesn't work well, and they are just generally unreliable. Seems like it might be related to the stereo setup but I'm just disappointed. For a device that's supposed to just melt away and work seamlessly it just doesn't. I've already dealt with support for hours on end and I'm about to just ask for a refund or some other compensation.
