How to Set a Timer on HomePod

Ready to challenge yourself and complete a certain task at a record time? Bravo! Set a timer on your HomePod to help you go past the deadline within the stipulated time. Moreover, use Siri to stop and manage timer effortlessly on the HomePod.

All geared up to make a super yummy dish or want to finish an important task within a certain time? Set a timer on your HomePod to let you complete the task within the stipulated time!

Do note that you are allowed to set only one timer at a time on the Siri-based speaker. And when you try to set the second timer while the first timer is still running, the virtual assistant will say “A timer is already running at 30 (X) minutes. Would you like to replace it?” Besides, you have no option to view your HomePod timers. Regardless of the limitation, let’s find out how to create and manage timer on HomePod using Siri!

How to Create a Timer on HomePod

To create a timer, just say, “Hey Siri, set a timer for 35 minutes.”

You will be able to set a timer for a select number of minutes or hours. The maximum time limit is 24 hours.

If you ask the personal assistant to set a timer for longer than 24 hours, it will suggest you use a Reminder instead. To know how much time is remaining on the timer, say “Hey Siri, how much time is left on the timer?” The virtual assistant will provide you a time update.

How to Stop Timer on HomePod

The speaker will play a loud sound when the time is up. To stop the timer sound, just tap on the top of the HomePod. Or you can ask Siri to stop it.

How to Turn Off Timer on HomePod

Turning off timer is just as simple. Simply ask the personal assistant to get it done for you. “Hey Siri, turn off the timer” or “Hey Siri, pause the timer.”

There is also an option to change the timer countdown with a simple command. For example, “Hey Siri, change the timer to 10 minutes.”

That’s it!

Ideally, it would have been better had there been an option to set multiple timers on HomePod. I wish Apple added this functionality sooner than later. What do you think of it?
