HomePods as a sound bar

I was intending to do this as well, but I heard something that made me pause … can anyone confirm or deny that to use the HomePod or HomePod mini, that you need to have two factor authorisation enabled? I don’t use it (long story, lol) but I’d like to buy a pair of HomePod minis if they wil work without it.

I have 2FA enabled for my iCloud account but it wasn’t needed to set up the HomePod minis. Just a sign into my iCloud account on screen.

thanks for the feedback :slightly_smiling_face:

That would seem to be suggestive, without actually being conclusive though (considering you did have it enabled when you were setting up the HomePod).

Can these work as wired units? We have a 2015-ish Vizio and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have bluetooth although it does have wifi.

Thanks

Hi. No unfortunately not.

Too bad, but not surprising sadly!

Has anyone tried them on an older TV? I suppose I can do the buy/return thing but would rather not.

Thanks
