HomePod has long been able to be the audio source for an Apple TV and it works rather well, thanks the great sound quality of the HomePod but one little niggle is that it couldn’t be set as the hard default output for the Apple TV, as it would occasionally unpair and you’d need to reselect it. Thankfully in the upcoming iOS 14.2 and tvOS 14.2 updates which are currently in beta, Apple has fixed this issue and you can now set a HomePod as the default audio source for an Apple TV.

This should also work with a stereo pair, which is a nice setup for a living room and the new HomePod mini should support this too.
