(Streaming my own music to HomePod via AirPlay) Me: “Hey Siri, turn it up”. Siri (pausing the music): “I’m having trouble connecting to the internet right now.” …pause continues… “I’m sorry, for more information…” …music stops… Me: 🤬🤬🤬

  1. @jack This is a big part of why I don’t stream music and don’t have a smart speaker. Say what you will, but locally stored media files play reliably, online and off, and pressing a button is much more reliable than a voice command.

  2. @sanspoint i dislike controlling music by voice, though. And I never choose it that way either. I prefer to select music visually.

  3. @jack Yeah, when I don’t know what I want, scrolling through the grid view in iTunes is great for deciding! (Or flipping through my records.) When I do know, I usually call it up on my Mac with Launchbar.
