I had been hesitant about buying a HomePod. All I can say now is that if you have a heavy appreciation for music, the sound quality is totally worth it!
Homepod brings great convenience to our daily life. You can get help with everyday tasks, and control your home, listen to your favorite music and many other things all with Homepod. But is it really that good? Is the HomePod really worth buying? For this topic, users have a different view. In this article, you can see how it works in the real world and if it’s worth getting one for yourself.
Part one: See what a HomePod can do for you
- Control your home:
Ask Siri to turn on lights, adjust the thermostat, and control all of your HomeKit accessories.
- Use Siri to listen to music and podcasts
With Apple Music, Siri can play all of your favorite music and even help you discover something new.
- Make Personal Requests:
You can ask Siri to make and answer phone calls, check your calendar, edit notes, send messages, and more.
- Do more with Siri:
Check the weather, find places, find places, get the latest news, set a timer, catch up on sports, check stocks, ask Siri to translate. See what languages Siri can translate.
- Super high sound quality:
The HomePod’s strengths are sound quality and effects. There are six microphones spaced around the body so they can focus on your voice from any direction.
Part two: There are also some functional flaws
- It’s not compatible with android devices
It requires your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch has iOS 11.2.5 or later.
- The setup progress is complex
When you set up the HomePod, you have to sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID and turn on iCloud Keychain first. You also need to have two-factor authentication set up for your Apple ID.
- It’s not smart enough
When you tell the HomePod”Hey Siri, play a song,” it automatically selects your favorite song from Apple Music to play. This is inconvenient for users who are not used to Apple Music.
- It’s very heavy for its size, and it’s too pricey to justify buying.
