Finally, the HomePod is yet another major brick in Apple's walled garden.
TechCrunch: "Apple's HomePod is easily the best sounding mainstream smart speaker ever".
After failing to capitalize on the lead it had on voice assistants by launching Siri back in 2011, Apple appears to have missed a big opportunity with Siri yet again with HomePod.
Amazon Echo essentially houses Alexa, the personal assistant developed by the huge company. This time, Apple's briefings included playing a selection of songs on HomePod and three competing speakers, asking Siri a series of questions it could answer, and in some cases demonstrating multi-HomePod features that were left out of the initial software release.
With this being central to the speaker systems, each assistant is more than adequate, but each carries its own advantages and disadvantages.
So can Siri take on Alexa?
The Apple HomePod, the iPhone maker's answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home smart speakers, has gone on sale.
She notes that the HomePod is unable to read out calendar appointments or make phone calls via voice command, and pointed out that it does not work with ubiquitous apps like Uber and Venmo.

The HomePod is one of the priciest home speaker models out there, priced just $50 less than the Google Home Max.
Alexa is accessible through some third-party devices such as speakers (although to a lesser extent than Assistant or Cortana) and will soon be available on some Windows PCs. Especially against current competitors that already provide great results, such as with the Google Home Max?
Apple has four new HomePod commercials called: Equalizer, Distortion, Bass, and Beat.
At the same time, the new speaker can be an exercise in frustration at times, especially when you request something of Siri that Apple's digital assistant can't deliver on HomePod.
Above all else, the Apple HomePod is armed with six outstanding speakers, meaning that the music playback capabilities of the intelligent Apple speaker system is far superior to either the Amazon Echo or Google Home. I found that when music was at a high volume, HomePod generally heard my "Hey Siri" voice commands from across the room, a good thing.
The hands-free options the HomePod offers are wide ranging; in the right office environment, the device can add convenience, save time, and improve productivity, not to mention morale. Probably the most famous smart speaker is Amazon's Echo, which runs the AI assistant Alexa.
