The HomePod mini has been tested, and audio expert Ali Pardiwala meets with host Pranay Parab to talk about this smart speaker. The device is a bit polarizing as it is a niche and not compatible with the vast majority of audio sources. We’ll start this episode by talking about it. Is Apple missing a trick here by not supporting standards other than AirPlay? Some similar devices from competitors are reportedly out of date due to similar issues and we talk about them in detail. Like a TV, you want to keep a smart speaker for at least 10 years. Are older AirPlay devices likely to be supported that long? We discuss that too.
Next, let’s talk about the HomePod mini’s sound quality and discuss whether it can give its competitors a chance. Many people claim that HomePods are best used as a stereo pair. So do you really need to buy two HomePod minis, or can you deal with just one of them? We try to answer this question too. We’ll also discuss some specifics about the HomePod mini and what you need to do to get the most out of this speaker. Then we come to the elephant in the room – Siri – and whether it works well in India. To wrap up the episode, let’s talk about our wishlist of features we’d like to see on the HomePod mini.
OnePlus 8T, OnePlus 8 Series and OnePlus TV get discounts on 7th anniversary sales on December 17th
