Do countdown timers really work?

Hello:

Countdown timers, when used properly, can create a sense of urgency. Make sure the timer does not restart each time the eprsoon opens the email or the source. When time starts over, people will perceive it as a fraud.

However, do not put a countdown timer on everything you send.

Timers no longer work on HomePod

Since yesterday the Homepod does not accept a timer request, even the simplest "Hey Siri, Timer". In fact, any request with the word "timer" will fail, even if it does not start, poll, or stop a timer.

Any other query that comes to mind will be processed as usual.

I tried removing the plug and reconnecting it after a while, but it made no difference.

Is something obvious missing?
