Apple anuncia la fecha de lanzamiento del HomePod y abrirá sus reservas este viernes
The apple company has just updated the HomePod specifications on its website, confirming all the sources that users will be able to use to play content on their device. This confirms that the smart speaker is compatible with Apple Music, iTunes Music, Beats1 Live Radio, Podcasts, the music library and AirPlay.
According to MacRumors, in the case of Apple Music, HomePod users can ask Siri to play over 45 million songs currently available on the music streaming service, but a subscription is required to do so.
Similarly, users can ask Siri to play songs, albums, or audiobooks they have purchased from the iTunes Store. The same applies to content stored in their iCloud library, including songs imported from other sources (such as CDs), provided that they have an Apple Music or iTunes Match subscription .
But that’s not all. Apple also indicates on its website that it is possible to ask Siri to play the official Beats1 radio station, as well as to play any podcast episodes found in the iTunes podcast directory.
Orders for HomePod began last week, just before the official launch of the speaker, which will take place on February 9th in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. At the moment we don’t have details about its arrival in Spain nor do we know if it will arrive in the near future in any Latin American country, so we will have to wait for official information about it.
