Problems with the HomePod Mini only affect the small speaker’s German language system, even if the current HomePod OS 15.2 is installed on it.
Reminders can no longer generate reminders by voice command and can no longer send iMessage messages. A Spicy Note: There is no error message about not sending messages, so users can assume that their message was sent correctly, however this is not the case. It is no longer possible to trigger short commands by voice.
If the server uses the green status indicator on the website as a criterion, Apple will not be aware of any offense. Sometimes, the loudspeaker does not even announce the time, but is muted.
Problems persist for a few days after Christmas, so we do not consider the massive launch of the new HomePod Minis to be the cause of the problem. Mac Life has efficiently reset one of the stubborn speakers without changing anything about the malfunction.
We expect Apple to fix issues that did not exist when HomePod OS 15.2 was released in the next few days.
