In the (WWDC) Worldwide Developers Conference happened in June 2017, Apple revealed its Siri-based HomePod speaker. Apple has working to designed it something that no other company has managed for years to enjoy the music at home.
The apple’s HomePod is the great answer to Google Home and Amazon Echo and it’s obviously better than all. If you are a huge audio nerd you may be want to get some louder to hear it. But if you are just a regular person you might get more from other speaks. HomePod is a voice assistant equipped speak that will help your multiple tasks and play music on your command.
Yes, Apple’s HomePod pre-orders have begun in the start of January 2018 and the device is out now.
As the users expected the performance of Siri’s will be the smart ever which may be disappointing them now.
Siri at the moment can’t beat Alexa and Google Assistant capabilities as they have a large amount of data stored on their servers as Research Principal Analyst Kevin Krewell told TechEFeed.
Apple has never considered seriously about Siri because they just making this like an extra feature but it may be given more response when they start treating it like another platform.
“Google Assistant, Alexa and Microsoft Cortana are getting more higher and higher in the market just because they taking it seriously and are putting million into their efforts” Apple’s Siri feature is starting behind and the level of importance in also falls farther back.
