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!
How to Turn Off/On HomePod Listening History
Step #1. Launch the Home app on your iPhone or iPad.
Step #2. Now, you need to long press the HomePod icon in the Accessories list.
Step #3. Next, tap on Details button.
Step #4. Next up, turn ON/OFF the switch next to “Use Listening History” which located under the “Music & Podcasts” section.
From now onwards, anyone from your household can ask Apple Music to play songs. But the music streaming won't play songs, which have been personalized for your taste!
