Now, let the software update be complete. You may have to wait for around 10 minutes.

The LED indicator will now circle around on the HomePod letting you know that it’s being updated.

After the update is completed, you will receive a “software is up to date” message inside the Software Update section of the Home app. Then the LED indicator will stop on the speaker.

Over to you

Personally, I’m bit disappointed to come to know that the software update doesn’t include the support of AirPlay 2. I hope Apple brings it sooner than later.

There is also an option to update your Apple smart speaker automatically. Jump over to this post to know more.
