Question: HomePod

I recently just bought the HomePod, and I've noticed a few times a day the music would randomly start playing. There are a few times it happened when I was home and a few other times when I wasn't. I've checked all my link devices to my account to make sure it wasn't playing from that device. What could be the issue?

HomePod, iOS 11.2.6

See the Change AirPlay settings section of Change settings for HomePod - Apple Support. If you set it up for Everyone then you should probably Require Password as well, or your neighbours could be accessing your device, whether intentionally or by accident.

You're welcome. 🙂

It is also possible to start and stop playback if you tap on the HomePod in the Home app when you're not at home. I've managed to do it accidentally while trying to check my settings. 😊
