is this normal for my HomePod?

Hardware and Accessories

Hi guys. I just got a HomePod. When I set it up, it was using the Siri voice, but it was still running the first ever release for HomePod. After updating it, voiceover just plain broke. I had to reset the HomePod, and when it came back, voiceover was using Samantha compact. Is this expected behavior?

I think so. I think mine started using Samantha compact when iOS13 came out for it. Weird that VO uses that, but Siri still uses its own voice. Not a huge deal, though.

Not a problem really. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't torn up the software or something.
