Workaround: Reset HomePod or HomePod Mini

Resetting your HomePod or HomePod Mini can be used as a workaround method to change your Apple Music account on the device. You can set up the HomePod again with a different Apple ID and Apple Music account by resetting it, which essentially returns it to its factory settings.

However, it’s crucial to remember that resetting the HomePod will delete all data and settings related to it, including user preferences and settings for other smart home features. Considering this, I advise you to back up all your data before doing so.
