Apple HomePod review

Published on February 6, 2018

The HomePod is Apple’s answer to the Amazon Echo, the Google Home, the Sonos One, and every other smart speaker out there with a voice assistant built-in. It’s a $349 speaker with Siri built-in — the basic idea is pretty simple. It comes in two colors, it’s covered in a spongy fabric with a touch display at the top, and it’s surprisingly heavy. The HomePod will be released February 9th.

    A lot of people are asking about Spotify. While it’s true you can AirPlay Spotify (and other services) from your phone, you can’t ask Siri to play a song from Spotify, and you lose most of the voice controls apart from play, pause, and volume when you do that. In which case, it might as well be a Bluetooth speaker. – Nilay

    I am not anti apple guy, I use mac, but this homepod drives me nuts. Being so restricted, no Android support. Please don’t buy it!

    If you want really good audio with more features then this HomePod then do this

    1. Buy the Edifier R1700BT – it’s 2 bookshelf speakers with Bluetooth and a remote.
    2. Get an echo dot.

    All this costs much less then the HomePod and will provide amazing audio. But you don’t get 360 audio and it’s not as portable.

    Best thing to do is just buy a google home mini, and plug it into a real speaker system and presto. Any speaker your like + $40 google home instantly beats this thing.
