How to play music on HomePod without wifi
- Open the ‘Start’ app on the iPhone or iPad that is associated with your HomePod.
- Do not touch the ‘HomePod’ icon, instead, touch the house icon that appears in the upper left next to ‘My Home’.
- Then, scroll down to the ‘Allow speaker access’ section, and tap on this option.
- Choose ‘All’.
- If you wish, you can set a password, which is very useful if you do not want someone close to you to send music to your speaker.
Now your iPhone or iPad can send music to HomePod using Apple’s AirPlay streaming technology . You can not use Siri to control it, but you can control the music using your iPhone, to pause or move to the next song, for example.
The only other thing you can do is make sure you have the wifi turned on, just as it is required for the iPhone and HomePod to communicate.
Now you can enjoy your music from your HomePod regardless of whether there is a Wi-Fi connection available or not.
