Apple today released its own voice based Artificial Intelligence speaker for smart home. Its going to be an answer to's Echo and Google's Home. The price tag for Apple's new Homepod is $350 and will be shipped on December later this year. In contrast, Echo and Google Home is $180 and $110 respectively.
Taking into account strength and weakness of Echo and Home, Apple Homepod will have superior sound quality that can satisfy high standards of audiophiles. Homepod won't have an ability to order things onby voice like Echo or answer questions like Google Home does. However, like Echo and Hone, Homepod can answer basic questions and control other devices such as smart bulb, smart thermostat, and others in addition to playing tunes via Apple Music.
I hear Smart Home space is slowly becoming a batttle ground for biggest technology companies. What do you guys think of Apple's Homepod?
