The greatest novelty of this year’s WWDC conference from Apple company is HomePod – “smart speaker” whose brain is well known Siri. HomePod should be competition to Sonos, Amazon and Google at once, and from Apple say it sounds “better than average speaker”. At its heart is the Apple A8 processor thanks to which detects signals from the environment. HomePod receiving voice commands. It is enough to say, “Hey, Siri” and the device will light up, and you can ask him to release a song you love, “something new”, “the most listened song on 5 May 2016” and this device will answer you desire.
Apple is working to optimize Siri, to become a home assistant, but for the start playing music.
HomePod encrypts all communication, so your data is safe. It will not come out before the end of this year and will cost around $ 350.
