What to do if a HomePod Mini doesn’t respond to voice commands

HomePod Mini works primarily through voice commands with the help of Siri. It doesn’t have many physical controls, so you can only accomplish most things with voice commands. If your HomePod Mini isn’t responding to voice commands, try these solutions:

Make sure HomePod Mini is turned on. Check the power cable and make sure it is connected to a compatible USB adapter. You can also touch the top of the device to see if it responds. If so, it’s on and should respond to voice commands. If not, try another USB power source.

Make sure Hey Siri is enabled. Press and hold the top center of HomePod Mini and say “Turn on, hey Siri.” If it’s still unresponsive after that, open the Home app on your iPhone, go to HomePod Mini’s settings, and turn on Listen for Hey Siri.

Why isn’t my HomePod mini pair working with stereo sound?

HomePod Minis should automatically connect for stereo sound without any additional setup process. However, if you have two HomePod Minis that won’t pair for stereo sound, try these solutions:

If you have a HomePod and a HomePod Mini, you can’t pair them for stereo sound. A HomePod Mini will only pair with another HomePod Mini for stereo sound.

Make sure they are on the same Apple ID account. If you haven’t set up both HomePod Minis with your phone, using the same Apple ID, they won’t pair for stereo sound.

Make sure they are on the same network. If you set up HomePod Minis at different times, they may be on different Wi-Fi networks. Check each HomePod in your iPhone’s Home app and make sure they’re on the same network.

Assign both HomePod Minis to the same room. If you assign HomePod Minis to different rooms in the Home app, they won’t pair.

Bring them closer. Place the HomePod Minis as close together as possible, with no obstructions between them. Then, if they match, you can return them to their original position.

Combine them first, then place them. Try unplugging the HomePod Minis and taking them to another room where you can plug them in side by side. Place them next to each other and wait for them to pair up. Once successfully paired, you should be able to return them to their original position.

Check your iCloud account on your phone. You’ll usually see an error message on your phone if there’s a problem with your iCloud account or settings, but you can check to be sure. First, open Settings on your iPhone, then tap on your name and tap on iCloud. If you see alerts at any stage in the process, respond to them.

Let HomePod Mini set up and come back later. If it’s a busy time of year, iCloud servers can get overloaded even if they’re not down. Let your HomePod Mini work for a while, then come back later. You can also try the setup process later or at another time of day when iCloud servers aren’t as busy.
