Starling Home Hub won't airplay audio. Everything else works fine. Any ideas?

Cupertino, October 4, 2021

Fixed! They reached out after I sent them an email with a new update. It works super well so anyone with the same issue it seems like it should be fixed soon!

Original post:
Hey is anyone having trouble airplaying audio to their nest minis? Everything was working fine up until about Thursday afternoon (on the old firmware) then all of a sudden all audio stopped playing. It can still play through the google home app so the speakers are still working but neither my nor my wife's phone (nor our laptops) can airplay audio to them from any app. The nest hello camera as well as the thermostats, protects, and everything else is all still working fine in the app. This is true for both individual speakers as well as speaker groups. Below are the fixes I've tried:

* Reset all devices (including wifi router, starling, phones, speakers)
* Factory reset Starling and totally re-paired
* Turned all extensions off of safari in Phone
* Turned off Dolby Atmos and set to lowest quality streaming
* Switched wifi networks around
* Started playing music through Google home app, paused it, then tried immediately playing music through Apple Music (won't play any audio through airplay; Music, Youtube, Spotify etc.)
* Turned off private address in wifi
* I'm sure there's more but can't think of anything else.
