The Apple HomePod will compete with Amazon Echo and Google Home, but the branding and customer loyalty that the consumer electronics giant has built up will undoubtedly count for a lot in this ongoing battle. While the proof will be in the pudding with this speaker system to some extent, details released do give those some indication of its capabilities. Siri-driven Fans of existing Apple devices will be delighted to see the four-letter word immediately linked with the HomePod, as the smart assistant is central to the functionality of this speaker system. Simply saying the words ?Hey Siri? will effectively awaken the Apple HomePod, while playing music can also be achieved in extremely straightforward fashion with the intelligent assistant. Apple stated in its presentation that the team which works on Siri on a regular basis has integrated new updates into the AI system for the HomePod, ensuring that the music playback request works better than ever before. Apple has begun an all-out attack on home audio by announcing at its 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference the company?s highly anticipated new smart speaker, the HomePod. The HomePod takes aim at new smart speakers that have been dominating the market in recent years, including devices like Amazon?s Alexa and Google?s Home, while simultaneously looking to capture the high-end (and home-filling) sound of Sonos? multiroom speakers. The speaker?s design doesn?t deviate much from the smart-speaker playbook, looking very similar to multiple wireless speakers on the market as of late. The speaker stands just under 7-inches tall, and is covered in acoustically treated mesh. Inside is a 360-degree array of seven tweeters along the base and a 4-inch, upward-facing woofer claimed to combine for excellent, room-filling sound. Play:1 speakers , among many others. And of course, we can?t forget the smart functionality via Apple?s sassy assistant Siri. With an array of microphones inside and Siri on board, the HomePod will integrate seamlessly with the company?s Apple Music streaming service, allowing users to ask questions like, ?What was the top song in 2015?? or more ambiguous requests like ?Play something new.? Thanks to cloud connection, users can also ask the HomePod the same questions they might ask an Echo or Google Home device via Apple?s Homekit protocol, ranging from simple requests like reminders to complex smart home controls, whether you?re in your home or abroad.
