Automation to interrupt HomePod receiving music through AirPlay

Cupertino, March 18, 2020

Can you suggest an automation that stops all the sounds from a HomePod regardless of the source: AppleMusic or AirPlay?

I want to turn off the HomePod when I leave the room and I have done this automation:

The light goes out

HomePod: Pause

Audio: Pause

This only works if the sound source is Apple Music. If the source is iPhone / AirPlay, nothing happens.

HomePod 13.3.1 • iOS 13.3.1
