Here's what reviewers are saying about HomePod, Apple's new smart speaker

 

  • Apple HomePod reviews are out, and most folks are praising its sound quality.
  • Still, reviewers say the smart speaker is best for people who already use other Apple products and services.
  • Reviewers say Amazon and Google's smart speakers are smarter and compatible with a larger range of devices and services.

Reviews of the HomePod — Apple's new $350 Siri-powered smart speaker — are out, and they're mixed.

Reviewers appreciate the device's audio quality but note that the device is only for people already invested in Apple's ecosystem, such as those who already own an iPhone, iPad, Mac or other Apple device. It's not for Android users or folks who prefer music services such as Spotify over Apple Music.

In other words, it sounds OK but there's still a ton you can't do with it yet.

Here's what the reviewers are saying.

BuzzFeed said the HomePod is "designed for someone with 100% Apple product buy-in, who lives in the iOS/Mac ecosystem, who subscribes to Apple Music, and who just wants basic smart speaker functions." It says "anyone else should consider other options."
