HomePod

HomePod

A Siri virtual assistant and wireless speaker from Apple. Announced in 2017 for December delivery, Apple touts the HomePod as a quality sound system as well as the ideal gateway to the Apple Music service because users can ask Siri to find and play songs. With a high-excursion woofer and seven tweeters, the HomePod fine tunes the music by sensing the room environment. When more HomePods are added in the same room or in other rooms, the devices communicate with each other to balance and control the sound. HomePod is also a hub for controlling lights and accessories in the automated home. See smart speaker, virtual assistant and smart home.
