How to Disable HomePod Listening History

Turn off HomePod listening history to ensure all of your Apple Music recommendations remain unaffected. Once you have turned off listening history on the smart speaker, the music streaming service will no longer play songs from the personal curation algorithms.

HomePod and Apple Music are a deadly combination! The music streaming service not just lets you stream songs on demand but also recommends tracks based on what you enjoy listening. Everything that sets you on fire is smartly curated to enliven your music time. If you don’t want other members of your household to affect your Apple Music recommendations or instead wish to keep those personalized suggestions shielded, you can choose to disable your HomePod’s listening history.

Once you have turned off the Apple Music listening history, the streaming service will no longer play songs from its personal curation algorithms. And at any time, you want to remove the restriction; you can go back to the default option. Let me show you how it’s done!
