Finally, Siri is coming to more parts of your home thanks to the latest HomePod update. Soon, you will be able to utilize microphones built-into devices like HomeKit thermostats or AirPlay 2 speakers to summon Apple's virtual assistant just like you do with your HomePod.
Siri, through third-party accessories, isn't just limited to specific interactions either. You will be able to send messages, add reminders to your shopping list, control HomeKit accessories, or get everyone's attention in your home through Intercom.
While other devices will respond to your voice command and display feedback, your HomePod will be doing all of the heavy lifting quietly in the background. This method enables the convenience of having Siri everywhere while still maintaining your privacy with local on-device processing.
What is your favorite Siri command to use with your HomePod? Are you excited to try these new features in your home? Be sure to update your HomePod software to get these useful new capabilities.Do more
