Siri Not Responding on HomePod: Tips to Fix the Issue

Please note:

  • Siri doesn’t work as intelligently on HomePod as it does on iOS devices. So, don’t be surprised if it’s not able to answer some queries.
  • The personal assistant immediately gets into action when you say, “Hey Siri,.” But if it doesn’t get invoked when you say the phrase, ensure that nothing is obstructing the speaker.
  • While asking the question to the virtual assistant, try to be as precise as possible. We have rounded up over 100 Siri commands for HomePod. Give them a look to figure out the type of commands that work effectively on the speaker.
  • Be sure your iOS device is connected to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is enabled on your device.

Solution #1: Turn OFF/ON Wi-Fi

Try turning OFF/ON Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It’s a pretty simple trick and should help you fix the problem immediately. Settings → Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and turn it off. Now, restart your iOS device and turn on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Solution #2: Turn Off/ON Siri on HomePod

If the first trick didn’t solve the issue, disable Siri on your HomePod. Then, wait for some time and turn on the personal assistant again. To do so, head over to this post.
