You cannot interact with HomePod alarms in the Home application without first playing media control

You cannot interact with HomePod alarms in the Home application without first playing media control

Updated yesterday at 14.4 on iPhone, HomePod and HomePod mini. 1) Open the Home app 2) Long press the HomePod or HomePod mini to display the controls 3) Create the alarm 4) Tap “X” to close the HomePod controls 5) Long press the HomePod or HomePod mini to display the controls 6) Try _ (and fails) _ to interact with the alarm (tap to switch, switch / deactivate, etc.) 7) Interact with media commands (play a song, search forward or backward, etc.) 8) Try _ (and succeed) _ for interact with the alarm (tap to switch, switch on / off, etc.) This is especially annoying for the HomePod mini, which is in the bedroom, where sometimes people sleep and voice interaction is not desired.
