Apple has finally revealed its long awaited Siri-connected speaker at this year's WWDC, a direct rival to the likes of the Amazon Echo and Google Home.
"We really believe it is going to take your home music experience to the next level", Apple chief executive Tim Cook said as he unveiled it. It's unclear how Apple's music service will integrate with HomePod, although Apple's website boasts the smart speaker as having access to Apple Music's40 million songs, so that seems to confirm it.
It includes six different in-built microphones which allow users to interact with it while standing anywhere within a room.
Shipping of the HomePod will begin in December, to the United States, Britain and Australia. Along with its new line of computer and laptops, the tech giant has also launched a screen-free computer, powered by Siri, which doubles down as a top-notch home audio device. In-fact, according to the company, users can even ask Siri who is the drummer of a particular song, and it would be able to pull up answers for you.
