Apple HomePod Demo
The users who listened to the first Apple HomePod demo like how it sounds. The demo on the Worldwide Developers Conference had positive reviews from the listeners around. Many were quick to point out the device being better than Amazon Echo or Sonos Play 3.
Like Echo, HomePod is a device connecting with the home. It will offer additional utilities like managing appointments, switching off lights, and providing virtual assistance. The device has an A8 chip which can deliver quality sound for different music tastes.
The six built-in microphones assist the device in analyzing the room. This spatial awareness lets Apple HomePod play the music according to its surroundings. The audio separates the vocalists from the ambient sounds. The singer’s voice in a song takes the lead, making it a lot clearer.
Automatic Adjustment for More Speakers
You can also group more than one Apple HomePod devices. If you buy two of these devices, they will reconfigure automatically to give best sound quality. This configuration will change with the addition of newer Apple HomePods.
Add to Apple Music Experience
The new device will sync with the already available Apple devices. There is an app to stream content from the user’s Apple Music Library seamlessly. Furthermore, the app currently does not offer support for other types of services. However, for adding any other music streaming service, you may need to consider adding other device and using AirPlay 2, which will come with the new iOS 11.
Apple HomePod Design and Internet Reaction
It may sound unbelievable and out of this world. Consequently, the social media never feels shy to openly expressing its opinion about something. Apparently, they have an opinion on everything, and Apple HomePod is no exception.
