A new choice of sound of Home and breakthrough speaker – HomePod


New sound of Home - HomePod

The Apple HomePod is a smart speaker developed by Apple Inc. It was announced on June 5, 2017, at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.

HomePod combines Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver the highest-fidelity sound throughout the room, anywhere it's placed. This elegantly designed, compact speaker totally rocks the house.

Key Features of HomePod

HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it's playing and brings together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music.

HomePod is also an intelligent home assistant, capable of handling everyday tasks and controlling your smart home.

Apple built ApplePod with the high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier to play a wide range of deep, rich bass. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.

HomePod has a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters. Each with its own amplifier and transducer. And each custom designed with a precision acoustic horn that focuses sound for tremendous directional control. Creating an all-encompassing sense of space — and consistent, high-fidelity audio everywhere in the room.

An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the most complex audio innovations in HomePod. Upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. Beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music. And advanced echo cancellation.

Setting up HomePod is quick and magical. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically adjusts to give you optimal sound — wherever it's placed. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing. All you need to do is enjoy your music.

Senses the room and tunes the music. All by itself.

Place HomePod anywhere in the room. It automatically analyzes the acoustics, adjusts the sound based on the speaker's location, and separates the music into direct and ambient sound. Direct sound is beamed to the middle of the room, while ambient sound is diffused into left and right channels and bounced off the wall. .

Create stereo sound with a second HomePod.

Put another HomePod in the same room and they automatically detect and balance each other. With advanced beamforming capabilities, a HomePod pair is able to create a wider, more immersive soundstage than a traditional stereo pair.

When you add HomePod to more than one room, the speakers communicate with each other through AirPlay 2. Play the same music everywhere or play different songs in different rooms. You can also control any other AirPlay 2–compatible speakers.

HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music, which supports over 45 million songs in your home. With the intelligence of Siri and access to virtually all the world's songs, it's like having your very own musicologist who learns and plays what you like, and helps you discover music you love.

When you're really into a song, say "Hey Siri, I like this" or "Hey Siri, add this to my party playlist." Based on what you say and play, Apple Music learns your taste in music.

It is an intelligent assistant.

HomePod is great at playing your music. But it can also tell you the latest news, traffic, sports, and weather. Set reminders and tasks. Send messages. Hand off phone calls. And HomePod is a hub for controlling your smart home accessories — from a single light bulb to the whole house — with just your voice.
