Homepod does not pay played songs

Users of homepod and homepod mini, which also use apple music reports of an annoying mistake, which has apparently already consists for years: songs that you can play on the smartspeakers with the help of language assistant siri ("siri, game…"), obviously not in the playback statistics – at least not for the user comprehensible.

Payer is not high

This leads to the same multiple problems. On the one hand, the HOMPOD and HOMEPOD mini-horted tracks are not entered in apple’s popular replay list, with which one can often call back title of a year – and the reproductions ("play") can not be seen in the music app on the mac or itunes under windows. On the other hand, if you consumes a lot of music at the top knit manner, the personalization of apple music, so how well the ki of the streaming service learns the music taste of the user to submit appropriate proposals to him.

There is a workaround, but he annoys

Why apple has not yet solved the bug, long and wide, among others in apple’s official support forum, remains unclear. The colleagues of 9TO5MAC have always suggested a workaround in the past week. However, you can only refer to this with good will as such: it puts on the homepod or homepod mini-playback not on siri.

Airplay also helps without siri

Instead, you should do this over airplay from the iphone, ipad, ipod touch or mac. For this purpose, the music app there is first started and the airplay icon clicked, alternatively this also goes on the control center. Here, the homepod or homepod mini is selected in the local network. The reproduction is followed by the smartspeaker and it is also paid as a refunded.

Unclear is currently whether the new conversion function, which in homepod OS 14.4 or ios 14.4 has been integrated and a quick forwarding of a song from the iphone to the homepod mini allowed, influence the reproduction payment has.
