Until then, what you're getting with HomePod is exactly what Appleannounced onstage: a powerful home speaker with Apple Music integration, which also happens to be a HomeKit hub that includes Siri, but in limited capacity.
The device will be available to order online, starting on January 26 in the U.S., the United Kingdom and Australia. Originally expected to begin shipping late a year ago, the HomePod was delayed in November and is listed as shipping in "early 2018".
"HomePod delivers stunning audio quality wherever it's placed - in any room in the house, playing any style of music", says Apple.
Apple's HomePod comes with support for Apple Music, the company's streaming music service.
One of the customizable settings that was leaked is the option that allows users to disable the display light on top of the HomePod's display when they are using Siri. With support for Homekit, HomePod can turn on lights, raise shades, set desired temperature or anything that can ideal your home, enabling remote access and automations.
Jazz Fest music lineup announced The organizers made the announcement with a video set to Fats Domino's classic "I'm Walkin'", which can be seen above. This year will be a particularly exciting Jazzfest because the city of New Orleans will turn 300 years old.
Highlighting the security of HomePod at the launch, the company said: "The device will always listen for a "Hey, Siri" prompt to activate, information won't be sent to Apple's servers until after that command is heard". The company wants to remind you that this is a speaker and not just a box where Siri lives. The HomePod also is far more expensive than Amazon's highest-end Echo speaker, the $150 Echo Plus, which is more focused on smart home setup than audio. The most interesting new feature in the HomePod is that it allegedly has awareness of whether its owner is at home, thanks to Siri.
Of course, history has repeatedly shown that Apple is capable of achieving considerable success even when entering an already crowded market but there is growing sentiment that Apple may have left it too late this time to make a significant impact in smart speakers.
The HomePod will be available in the United States at Apple's stores and Best Buy.
The Siri-powered speaker will be available in the USA, the United Kingdom, and Australia starting February 9. Other European countries will get HomePod in the spring.
