For a product that Apple began taking orders for on Friday, we still don’t realize a lot about the HomePod. And, in the run-as much as its February 9th unlock, individuals are still working out exactly what it’s capable of.
Apple’s site suggests that the Siri-powered voice control capability handiest works with Apple Music, for example — it states “Siri works with Apple Song. Subscription required for Apple Song.” But what about when you use iCloud Track Library thru iTunes Fit, the virtual song garage and playback system that Apple Tune largely superseded?
Listed Below Are some obvious questions concerning the HomePod
An exhaustive breakdown from iMore suggested that, for some reason, iTunes Fit-most effective users wouldn’t give you the chance to invoke playback requests with Siri for their track saved in iCloud. Then Again, iMore’s Serenity Caldwell later followed up to clarify that iTunes Fit will probably be coated to boot, and Daring Fireball’s John Gruber has also heard that the HomePod works this way.
The HomePod acts as a typical AirPlay speaker besides, in fact, so you can beam content to it from any AirPlay-enabled app on your phone. you may even desire this to Siri. (I most definitely will.)
But Apple has been unusually quiet concerning the HomePod thus far, and people who order the speaker these days aren’t rather positive what they’re going to be getting. We’re looking forward to receiving the instrument and finding out for ourselves, then — keep tuned.
