Apple Announces Homepod 2
Apple announced the second generation of its HomePod on Wednesday. The latest HomePod allows users to create smart home automations using Siri, check the temperature and humidity of their homes, and get alerts when a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm is detected, Apple said. The HomePod should sound better thanks to support for spatial audio.
It also supports the new Matter standard, which means it will work with a new generation of smart home gadgets, like light bulbs, doorbells and cameras, without users having to worry if the gadget will support an Amazon, Google or Apple-based smart home hub. The new HomePod is available to order online and in the Apple Store starting Wednesday and will be available in stores on Feb. 3.
