In addition to the sound technology that will integrate, this speaker highlights, of course, by the integration of Siri. That is we have Apple’s voice assistant that will allow us to interact with this new and ambitious Apple device.

A recognizable design that hides many surprises

The appearance of the HomePod certainly reminds us of the Mac Pro. But here we find out a flat cylinder that has a grid almost all its surface. Although on the top we have a surface that lights when we interact with the speaker through Siri.

Best Audio Quality

The speaker has a matrix of seven tweeters at the bottom. So each one comes with its own driver and beam forming technology. Which achieves the outstanding audio quality.

That part of the speaker is combined with a four-inch woofer. But there is another surprise inside. That is the integration of an Apple A8 processor. So this is the same processor that we find in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014.

This powerful processor allows sound processing to offer acoustic modeling in real time. In addition to multichannel echo cancellation which offers a high sound quality. These technologies are combined with the “analysis” of the space in which the speaker is placed. So introducing the spatial awareness which helps to address the sound optimally.

Siri wants to conquer our home

HomePods are speakers that will be plugged into a power outlet. That is they are not battery powered or so-called portable. And among other features, it integrates a wireless connectivity. So allowing us to buy two (or more) of them, which will Automatically work together in perfect harmony.

Siri has adapted to the HomePod so that we can control the music in a powerful way. But with it, we can also take advantage of its capacity as a voice assistant. There is a strong component of control of the reproduction and information about the artist. That is we can ask “who is the drummer of this song?”.

Siri Voice Services

Thus, we will have access to those answers for our questions. These includes voice searches, setting alarms and reminders, translations, traffic or weather information. And of course, there is an option for interaction with HomeKit. So that is a section that could become especially interesting in the future.

HomePod Compatibility

Some of what Apple has not talked about is compatibility with other music services. we will not know if the HomePod will be compatible with Spotify, Google Music or other streaming services. So that is something that could limit the interest for a product that could, therefore, be Tied to Apple Music. At the moment there is no confirmation on this data.

Privacy Concerns of Siri

During the interaction with Siri through the HomePod, there is a section on which Apple wants to pay special attention. That is privacy. According to the company’s managers, Siri does not collect any data. And it is only activated when it hears the command “Hey Siri”. So that is the key for Siri that connect it to the servers of Apple to offer its services. And they ensure that this connection will be made by generating an anonymous ID And an encrypted communication at all times.
