If your music unexpectedly stops

If your music stops playing unexpectedly, use your device or Siri to start playing music again. In some situations, the Home app may be using your HomePod,* Apple TV or AirPlay-compatible speaker as the main audio source for streaming music (even if your HomePod* or Apple TV isn’t currently playing music). Using Siri on that device or performing another task may cause playback to stop everywhere. You can also use an iOS device or computer with iTunes as an audio source to stream music manually instead.

If you see video but can't hear audio
