  1. Thanks for not saying hey Siri. I bought one, it’s a pretty decent speaker for the size. But I sure hope they do some updates for functionality. Right now the Amazon echo which I’ve had for two years is much much smarter. But there is potential here.

    • Yeah, dyslexic after so much testing. I had it right in the written portion, but got signals crossed in video. derp.

  2. Hi 9to5Mac, unrelated question : which HomeKit accessories do you use? and how is it configured? maybe a setup vid? ^_^

  3. i think that nobody really purchase these homepods, just some youtubers thing 😀 just because their price which is too high for features what you get with it.

  4. I want it but I use Spotify over Apple Music for lots of reasons so only reason stops me from jumping in…
    That would like look nice in my living room!

  5. Jeff it is nice to get an intelligent example of what this product can do. I used to count on Apple Byte, but their influence by Google has tarnished the reputation.
