Ue megaboom vs homepod?
Michael Coe (11 days ago)
Very informative review. Thank you. I already have a Bluetooth speaker where I play via my iPhone and can utilise Siri so I think I’ll wait until AirPlay 2.0 to see how I can make use of it all. Unless someone gifts one to me - in which case I might have to do my own review 😉
Daren Spinelle (12 days ago)
I was so excited for this thing- just like I was pumped for the iPhone X. I kept my 7 plus because I couldn't reason a laptop price tag for a phone that didn't meaningfully provide more. Now, here again Apple has lost me. It doesn't help that Apple doesn't work well with smart devices. When my $50 ($25) google home mini gives me even more, it's time to branch out. It's too bad too, I enjoyed having a unified ecosystem.
Peter Ransom (12 days ago)
can you do a video on those new moto mods for the moto z? and talk about if apple did a phone with add on mods
SystemSTK (12 days ago)
I am basically an apple fanboy, but they dropped the ball on this product. Keeping my Sonos products for home music until they get this right. Also, Sonos configures itself based on surroundings not only HomePod.
Antonio Oliva (12 days ago)
Hi Daniel! Love your Vids! I've bought an HomePod too, I should have it home in few days...honestly Even with all the limitation you just listed, I believe it's a very good product and since the main reason I got it is to listen greatly my beloved music, I think I will not be disappointed! We'll see!!
ASIF VIRK (13 days ago)
U now the new jbl extreme 2 will destroy this when it comes to sound quality.
Ed Rambeau (13 days ago)
If all my songs have been downloaded to my iPhone, can I play the music wirelessly on a HomePod?  Also, Can the HomePod play my Apple TV wirelessly?

fruity smart speaker
Brian Thomas (13 days ago)
I just left best-buy and I must say the sound from this HomePod was amazing.
Apple Hipster (13 days ago)
HomePod was intended to be the greatest speaker on the planet (at its price). Amazon/Google built the echo/home on intellectuality with a decent speaker. HomePod can surpass them on intelligence through a software update. But Echo/Google will never be able to surpass the HomePod in sound without upgrading the hardware. Apple has the upper hand...
Christopher Pagan (13 days ago)
I wish people would compare this to Google Home Max instead of only mentioning the smaller Google Home models. I know the HomePod supposedly sounds better, but people don't know this other product is out there.
Dwayne Shaffer (13 days ago)
The Home Pod is not on my wish list. Too expensive, too little smart functionality, Apple only, limited music service, no bluetooth shall I continue! NoPod!
DGames135 (13 days ago)
Actually the multiple homepods syncing together works now

I am going to review a product I haven’t even tried yet. Great!
benjamin kelly (14 days ago)
I bought HomePod. Waiting for the Zone of Tech review and insight as to how to use and what to expect in the future as far as updates and functionality.
Art Altman (14 days ago)
Exceptionally informative review.   Thank you.
Mark-Leon Thorne (14 days ago)
I'm very disappointed that the HomePod is aimed solely at Apple Music. It can't be used as the default speaker for MacOS.
nox (14 days ago)
You actually can connect with 2
craigr98 (14 days ago)
Hello. iPad 2017. Recently it looses sound and the only way to get it back to reboot the device? You seen this before? Checked Bluetooth was switched off so not trying to play the sound though that?

I would defiantly want to connect my HomePods together
Joe Carangi (14 days ago)
I ordered 2 HomePods & they arrived today. I bought two for the AirPlay2 capabilities, coming later in the year, in mind. The HomePod sounds great & I’m really impressed so far. Looking forward to what else later updates might bring to the HomePods.
Juan Torres (14 days ago)
Some of these is available already misleading info
Jay Rushlow (14 days ago)
Sounds like my sonos system is not going anywhere
Mark Duarte (14 days ago)
i don't think you understand stereo...
Liaz Med (14 days ago)
Of course, connecting more than one will be a preferable feature.

My AirPods never stay connected to my Apple TV. There did when the first came but not any longer.
Ognjen Krunić (14 days ago)
You just saved me 349 $! 🤣thank you😎

I would get one if I​ could afford it and had an Apple music subscription, I currently use iTunes
Baconface McGee (14 days ago)
It’s out today.
Grand Master (14 days ago)
All I got from this video is “the homepod sucks”
Extremist (14 days ago)
You’re expecting too much from Apple , as they have always been Apple are always limiting there products to iphone users. If they didn’t do that it just wouldn’t be interesting tbh, it’s all about the internals.
dddid kdkdkdk (15 days ago)
F**k apple seriously money grabbing greedy little trolls charging more then there competitors and you can't use it unless you own a apple device this is the height off snobbery and shows what they think of people that think if they shut android users out people will be dumb enough to go buy there devices and there over priced home pod unbelievable
Terry Baird (15 days ago)
Can I use HomePod with my iPad as a audio source while watching Netflix movies?
Connor Southern (15 days ago)
I'm an iPhone, Apple Watch and MacBook user. But there is nothing in Apple's ecosystem to convince me to use it. I use the text messages on your Mac from iPhone and hand-off, but that's it. I really think Apple are going down hill. I have Google Homes and they're much superior.
Mindy Tan (15 days ago)
HAHAHA! oh my! DID NOT know about #8 - you can ONLY use apple devices to connect to HomePod! Clever of Apple - creating this family of products that exclusively work together...
carrweezy (15 days ago)
Really want this for the sound quality and really want the google mini for its AI technology ability. If both of this was combined into one the. It’s a happy me run!
Kim Roberts (15 days ago)
One word: Sonos. Thanks for coming Apple.
Michael Thomson (15 days ago)
Thanks Daniel.. I’m in apple eco but not a chance I’d spend money on this. It’s just got too many negatives, are apple just assuming fanboys and girls will be silly enough to buy it because irs apple even with all the flaws? I miss the days when apple did Just Work.

umm no alexa doesnt care who talks to it. My parents echo will start talking anytime someone says a word starting with A. I disconnected that POS

Apple: music quality first, smart speaker second. But you can't play Spotify or any other none Apple music library on it. But you can't stream your favorite radio channel on it. I don't see any quality there
WhiteHawk (15 days ago)
You state in the video that AirPlay 2 is coming in late 2018, but on the Apple HomePod site it clearly states coming later this year, which could mean that, but it could mean in the summer, it could mean in 2-3 months, so are you sure about that?
Matt Halpain (15 days ago)
I look forward to watching your review video of your Home Pod when you get it this Friday
Gerard Gregory (15 days ago)
I hate apple
VenoStuff (15 days ago)
HomePod could be great!
sevengance (15 days ago)
Over priced piece of junk .
Jonathan Bruno (15 days ago)
I wouldn’t get one Daniel! At least not right now. I’m invested in the apple eco system and I still wouldn’t. it’s basically a $350 speaker! I have a sound system in my house and if I want to listen to music I can via Bluetooth. Its extremely limited right now and it sucks. U can’t even make and receive calls. That should have been available at launch. Come on apple! You guys are the most powerful and richest company in America and you can’t even stay ahead. Of the competition. Take some of that money and invest in your self and your product. I love Apple, but coooome ooon GUYS! I have to admit they have been listening and getting better but still. They can do better.
Tron Jacobs (15 days ago)
Eeerr play
Jeffrey Glover (15 days ago)
No way! I'll pass! I'm done with Apple. Limited abilities at outlandish prices.
Xiaobin Lu (15 days ago)
i don't get it. apple music only offers 256kbps and we talk about sound quality on that ? why why why
The Hud (15 days ago)
Regarding your negative comments, while these are all true, you need to remember that this has only just been launched. All the negatives you spoke of will be addressed via software updates. This is just the beginning.
Alex Kelley (15 days ago)
Power cord IS removable
Preston Hall (15 days ago)
I would honestly buy a HomePod, but really just for the speaker quality. Unfortunately because of my current living conditions and social status, it'd be pretty impractical for me to own one. For that reason, I'm not going to get one, but also because I just don't have enough money at the moment anyway. I'm currently saving up to buy an iPad Pro, that of which I hope they update before I actually can pay for it (and the leaks I'm seeing are very cool!) I'm currently a college student, so having an iPad Pro would be way more useful for me than a HopePod at the moment. That and an Apple Pencil, which I'm also planning on getting.

These are spy devices essentially nothing more
Pilgrim's Progress (15 days ago)
This is an extremely limited device.
Pilgrim's Progress (15 days ago)
Can you turn off hey siri? And just use touch?
Pilgrim's Progress (15 days ago)
Can you use it as a bluetooth speaker? Or plug in with an auxiliary cable or lightning cord? The answer is no
skyfirezn (15 days ago)
so what can this do other than be a speaker that you have to have a subscription to use ??
George Melvin (15 days ago)
Always enjoy your videos! I’m wondering how the sound quality of the HomePod compares to the Bose Wave Radio?
Mike Ruiz Esparza (15 days ago)
It is great to know it only supports Apple devices, no need to support 2nd class devices. Good for Apple!
lmmlStudios (15 days ago)
its not an Alexa or google home competitor, its a sonos competitor
Brady Nix (15 days ago)
Stop saying grab some popcorn and grab some snacks, everyone on YouTube is too lazy to get up and get snacks
Scott Medina (15 days ago)
Apple should put out a "dumb" speaker that does not come with Siri but that can sync as a slave to the main HomePod. Buying two Siri enabled speakers for one room is stupid. And yes this can play sound in 360 but if it is off to one side or another you lose the stereo sound. You need to be able to pair these to run them in stereo.
Im’a Potato (15 days ago)
And some hardware problems
Im’a Potato (15 days ago)
Don’t worrry its just a software problems
Joseph Cienega (15 days ago)
I have an iPhone X, iMac, Apple tv, and an iPad so I really want that homepod, it would work for me perfectly

Robert Spinks (15 days ago)
How does it work if i ask Siri something and my iphone is near it Does it get confused
lucy king (14 days ago)
Robert Spinks yes your iPhone will pick up the hey Siri if you say it to your HomePod and your phone is in reach
Jeffery Brown (15 days ago)
Great video Hey Cindy lol
Frank Morales (15 days ago)
I know one thing it sucks ! With all the money Apple has why can't they fix Siri ???
Kerry Small (15 days ago)
Well I don’t want one, even though I have an iPhone, An iMac, An iPad and the apple watch. It just ain’t worth it in my opinion.
William (15 days ago)
Best tech channel!!!
Stephen R (15 days ago)
Another premium priced beta test. It is no wonder Apple is the most profitable company in the world. Even when they ship out unfinished products people pay even more money than what competitors charge. iPhone X = $1200 for the privilege of being a beta tester now this... Can hear Stevie rolling over in his grave.
Tim datoolman (15 days ago)
I don't plan on getting HomePod even though I'm deep into the Apple ecosystem and have a subscription to Apple Music.
Damion Wilson (15 days ago)
No doubt, I willing be getting two of these bad boys.
Tech 313 (15 days ago)
You mentioned 10 things that should already come on this device but is not compatible, and end the video with this is the best speaker. 🤨🤔
Tech 313 (15 days ago)
So why would you buy the home pod right now?
Michel Falardeau (15 days ago)
Hum very disappointing. Apple strategy does need to change or the competition will take over. Compete with quality products not on trying to box people into your brand. Getting more and more frustrated with the brand. I have the iPad, Iphone, apple tv and apple watch but not allowing Spotify is just plain stupidly and greedy 👎🏼
Jamell Lewis (15 days ago)
Apple is the only company going strong during smartphone and tablet declines.
Fala Ai (15 days ago)
Michel Falardeau--Sorry you haven't been watching Apple the past 10 years.  For third parties such as Spotify there will initially be Airplay support.  At some point they will publish an SDK for more sophisticated connectivity.  I.E. It will be Spotify's responsibility to hook into the HomePod via the SDK.  As a very successful platform company Apple totally gets that not all of their customers are going to use Apple Music.  By giving third parties SDK access there will be thousands of important improvements to HomePod by third-party developers.
Peter Harper (15 days ago)
I’ll wait until they can Airplay 2 OR next year to get the improved 2nd gen one.
emanthechillest (14 days ago)
Peter Harper exactly. HomePod 2018 is a fail
mikeandersonwa (15 days ago)
I'm kinda excited for Home Pod 2 in a couple years. Right now it seems too buggy to really want one.
JKayser (15 days ago)
I stand by my decision to not get a smart speaker. I am saving up for an iPad pro though

Superlast (15 days ago)
Not sure I’d get it- Apple don’t make it such an attractive purchase. Too many asks for someone who already has iPhone, iPad, iMac. But I have Amazon Alexa and Amazon Prime so can stream unlimited music and make calls as well.
Rio Sóto (15 days ago)
I always hit the like button to Daniels superb videos!
Charles Reed (15 days ago)
If you have HomeKit, which I do, or use Apple Music, which I do, It fits the need. The lacking features will be coming with software updates. Good Rumor has it that 11.3 will not only bring AirPlay2, but the missing multi-room speaker features. Siri is also mainly cloud based, so just be aware.. Apple is not stupid, they know Siri's shortcomings, they read the forums, they know the pains of their customer base. Since HomePod will bring Siri front and center even more, don't be surprised if this helps speed major improvements on Siri. If you are in the Apple ecosystem, HomePod is perfect for certain use cases. Good video.
