Additional Service Integration
Apple could also make the HomePod more attractive by adding more services, such as compatibility with more music streaming services, more smart device controls, and so on. For an even more ambitious move, Apple could include compatibility with other voice assistants beyond Siri, like Alexa and Google Assistant. There are a ton of smart speakers on the market now and this sort of integration could help the new HomePod become more competitive. It would also be an unusual move for Apple, although the company’s services are becoming available on more and more devices.
