Users of the HomePod, HomePod 2, and HomePod mini have begun receiving Apple HomePod 16.3.2.
Along with the most recent iOS 16.3.2 and iPadOS 16.3.2 releases, the latest HomePod update is made available. The latest tvOS 16.3 was also provided by the iPhone manufacturer.
Does the most recent HomePod OS update, however, address the bothersome Siri request bug?
According to a recent claim by Mac Rumors, Apple published the HomePod 16.3 version two weeks ago, and the new HomePod 16.3.1 update arrives immediately after that.

The Cupertino-based tech company swiftly issued the HomePod release notes, outlining what customers may anticipate from the most recent update.
It is important to keep in mind that Apple occasionally waits before releasing a release note for updates to its hardware, such as the AirTag and the AirPods.
The well-known tech company was quick to inform consumers this time about the new features the updated software for its smart speakers brings to the table.
The maker of the iPhone claims that HomePod’s performance and stability have been improved with version 16.3.1.
Siri on the HomePod Is Now Fixed?

It prohibits customers from making basic smart home queries using Siri on the HomePod. Instead, Siri appears to slow, responding to orders like shutting off the lights with phrases like “working on it” and “on it.”
Apple claims that the Siri request bug is fixed in the most recent Home 16.3.1 update. Therefore, it ought to function normally, much like it did before the release of the HomePod 16.3 update.

- Open your iPhone’s “Home” app right away.
- Then click the three dots menu option in the app’s upper right corner.
- To install the most recent version, go to “Home Settings” and press “Software Update” from there.
