Top comment 'Hold the Bluetooth button for 3 to 5 seconds to pair a new device, There are voice prompts to alert you when searching for a device to pair, when connected and disconnected to a device and when the battery is low I'm living in a small apartment and this little one does the job very well.Since the SLCII can connect to multiple simultaneous Bluetooth devices - but only stream. Works with my Mac.Plugs into the headphone jack of any laptop or LED TV Comes with about a 6 foot cord Has two additional ports on one of the speakers - allows for another ear phone for quiet listening Each speaker is about a foot or so tall and comes with a plastic stand already attached'. The HomePod is designed as a multi-room music speaker, for effortless playback of music. It’s not really designed as a speaker connected to a device like a Mac or Apple TV, because there’s no cable input. I therefore would not recommend it. I can recommend the Bose Companion 20.
Use the latest version of macOS
The first step is to make sure that you're using the latest version of macOS. Back up your important information and then update the software on your Mac.
Check your sound settings

First, disconnect any external audio devices from your computer. Also disconnect any cables from the USB, Thunderbolt, or 3.5mm audio ports.
- From the Apple menu , choose System Preferences.
- Click Sound.
- Click the Output tab, then select the built-in speakers. If you don’t see built-in speakers as an option in the Output window, contact Apple Support.
- If the Output volume slider is set low, move the slider to the right and test again.
- If the Mute checkbox is selected, deselect it and test again.
- If you still don’t hear any sound, contact Apple Support.
