The HomePod mini, Apple’s compact and affordable smart speaker, has received a software update that brings several new features to enhance the user experience.
One of the most notable new features is the ability to make and receive phone calls on the HomePod mini. Users can now use the speaker to make and receive calls just as they would on their iPhone, with the added benefit of using the HomePod mini’s superior sound quality for clear and crisp audio.
Another new feature is the ability to set multiple timers at once. This allows users to set timers for different tasks or activities, such as cooking multiple dishes simultaneously or timing different exercises in a workout routine.
The update also includes support for Intercom, a feature that allows users to send voice messages to other HomePod speakers in their home. This feature can be useful for sending quick messages to family members or for making announcements throughout the house.
The HomePod mini has also received updates that allows it to work with other Apple devices, such as the ability to hand off music, podcasts, or phone calls from iPhone, iPad, or Mac to HomePod mini and vice versa.
Additionally, the HomePod mini now supports Apple Fitness+, a workout service that allows users to follow along with guided workout videos on their iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, and hear the audio through the HomePod mini.
The software update also includes general performance and stability improvements to ensure that the HomePod mini runs smoothly and efficiently. These new features make the HomePod mini a more versatile and valuable addition to any home.
