audioOS 15 and HomePod groups [Roon Investigating]

Last week, around the same time out Build 831 update was released, Apple released their audioOS 15 update for HomePod devices. After this update, we started receiving reports that grouping HomePods does not work.

What we’ve found is that grouping HomePods in HomeKit will cause playback to not work when you group them in Roon. Individual playback will work okay, however. As a workaround, you can ungroup the devices in HomeKit and then group them in Roon and they’ll play like normal.

Our team is investigating this issue to see if we can resolve the playback problems for devices grouped in HomeKit. We’ll keep this post updated when we have more information.
