Apple's contribution to the smart speaker market is finally hitting stores next month and while the company is focused more on delivering a premium audio experience, it's obvious the company wants a piece of Alexa's territory. HomePod will feature a proprietary audio system that uses beam-forming technology and real-time acoustic modeling to produce big sound in a portable package. Siri support will let you do things like send messages, control your smart home appliances, and check the weather. Multi-room audio and stereo pairing with an additional HomePod will also be supported sometime this year via a software update.
