Revolutionise the way you listen to music
The Apple HomePod brings together Apple Music and Siri in a compact, yet powerful speaker. No more navigating your iPhone for playlists and messing around with Bluetooth – just ask Siri to play something chilled, or catch up on TED Talks Daily podcast.

Apple's engineers have been hard at work, packing in an A8 chip for super-fast buffering, a custom amplifier for deep, rich bass, and seven tweeters so your music sounds amazing wherever you stand in the room.

Siri's here to help
Not sure if you need an umbrella? Be prepared for your commute with traffic and weather updates from Siri before you head out the door. Stay up-to-date with the latest news and sports headlines and ensure you don't miss anything important by setting reminders and tasks.

It's incredibly easy to stay in touch – send a text to let your friend know you're on your way, or have a hands-free conversation by transferring a call from your iPhone.

Intelligent hub
HomePod forms the centre of your smart home by acting as a hub for your Apple HomeKit smart accessories. Ask Siri to dim the lights, make the downstairs cooler, and much more with just your voice.

Set a schedule and automate multiple accessories at once – turn off the lights, switch off plugs, and turn down the heating when you're ready for bed with a command like “Goodnight”.

Simple to setup
You don't need to be a tech wiz to get the HomePod setup. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it so you can get started easily. The modern, compact design won't look out of place in any room, sitting neatly on your kitchen counter or bedside table.

The HomePod intelligently adjusts the sound based on its location in the room, so you always get the best quality audio. There's no need to shout either, it can hear your request from across the room, even when loud songs are playing.

The irony being that the HomePod only allows Spotify to be played via AirPlay.

I wonder how many people on here have new Spotify accounts with all the deals too! I had to transfer all my stuff to a new account (wife got free with Vodafone). Never again!

6 months ago EE gave me free Apple Music so I’ve used it alongside Spotify (which I’ve had for years) mainly for music on my watch for running or mountain biking. Honestly, they are worlds apart. Spotify is better than Apple Music in every single way.
And when every review about this HomePod says the same, ‘amazing sound quality limited functionality ‘. It’s a deal breaker for me.

Airplay has too much latency, try pairing it to an Apple TV and playing a Game where it needs to be spot on... you notice it so badly. Just something Bluetooth doesn't have because Bluetooth doesn't go through a Network. And it's not just my setup which is really good, you can easily search for the issue. The problem is Apple will not pay licensing fee's of AptX which is lossless streaming, so Apple bring out their own format and shut off Bluetooth altogether. Then you get all the fanboys saying how amazing it is even though Bluetooth has way lower latency and is universal... where Airplay locks you into Apple's ecosystem. For example I was shocked I couldn't use the HomePod as a speaker with anything else other than an Apple device.

Why on Earth would you buy a speaker like that? I sent mine back within the first week it came out as a result. Apple usually have their locked down ecosystems, but they offer a way for compatibility.... wether it's through the App Store on iPhone, or Bluetooth/Wifi etc. On the Mac they offer Bootcamp or third party installation options if you want to turn the security off. The AirPods I can still use them with other devices, and Apple TV uses HDMI... imagine if Apple did what they did with that LG Monitor so you had to buy a special TV for it lol.

The HomePod is the first big product form them they is completely locked down.
