Home Scene unable to play audio on multiple HomePods (iOS 15)

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

I am running an automation triggering a scene every morning. It switches on a few lights and plays audio on a HomePod mini in my bedroom, and a HomePod in my hallway.

I’ve updated all devices to OS 15 recently, which seems to have wrecked this scene. On most mornings, it won’t play the audio at all. If it does, or if I am triggering the scene again manually, it will only play on the hallway HomePod. However, the bedroom mini “pretends” to be playing. The top is lit, and it is showing as running in the home app, and as grouped with the hallway HomePod in the audio menu (and volumes are set correctly). I can even pause the hallway HomePod by touching the top of the bedroom Mini. It just does not put out any audio.

Now, if I de-select the hallway HomePod in the scene and activate it, the audio plays to the bedroom Mini without any issue. Home only seems to have a problem to play to two devices at once, which had always worked before.

Has anyone run into similar issues after updating to iOS 15?
