I set up a shortcut for quickly switching playback from device or AirPods to the HomePod. I know that with latest iOS 13 that can happen automatically when the phone is placed near HomePod but I find this to be unreliable. So, when I get in from a walk, usually listening to music or a podcast playing from iPhone to AirPods I can tap a widget or home screen icon and playback switches nearly instantly from AirPods to HomePod. It occurred to me though that I could just use Siri and say the name of the shortcut. Would be nice to just walk in the door and say “HomePod”. However when I do I get an error that the device could not be found. I’ve tried from iPhone and iPad, both give me the same error.
Any reason for this not to work?
