My HomePod 2's have a annoying habit of a few seconds into a music track they skip and resume. It only does this when using the homepods with my Mac Studio, not my iPhone or Apple TV. I have discovered that as long as my iPhone is powered on in lock mode or not the HomePods skips. If I shut off my iPhone is does not do this. It is very repeatable. Is the the Mac Studio having a conflict with the iPhone or is it the HomePod's. I really have no way of telling. I sure wish the HomePods had their own control App, having them controlled from HomeKit makes no sense to me.
