Product Info

Apple's HomePod is a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it’s playing. It’s the ultimate music authority, bringing together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music. HomePod takes up almost no space yet delivers room-filling sound. It's there to help you take care of everyday tasks with Siri, control your smart home, set up multi-room audio, and send Intercom messages to every connected room. HomePod keeps everything private and secure, and only listens for “Hey Siri.” This purposefully designed speaker creates rich, nuanced sound that defies its size. HomePod combines custom Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver precision sound that fills the room. And at just under 18cm tall, HomePod fits anywhere in your home.

  • HomePod is built to bring out the best in Apple Music — with the intelligence of Siri and access to over 70 million songs, it learns what you like and helps you discover more music you’ll love
  • You can also stream from Spotify and listen to audiobooks on Apple Books or playback your favourite podcasts
  • Help around home is just a "Hey Siri" away — from getting the latest weather to sending messages and controlling your compatible smart home accessories, Siri makes it easy to multitask with just your voice
  • Add compatible smart home devices to the Home app and control it with your voice using your HomePod — just say “Hey Siri, turn on the lights” or “Hey Siri, make the room cooler.” You can even ask Siri to set scenes, like “Good morning” that put multiple compatible smart home accessories to work — all at once
  • Together with Siri your HomePod can learn to recognise up to 6 different voices so everyone in the family can get the most out of the listening and smart assistant experience
  • With Intercom, you can easily communicate with your family members by voice using more than one connected HomePod in different rooms

Will HomePod work with everything in my house?

No. Apple HomePod and Siri-enabled products will only work with specific compatible devices. So, you'll need to install (or identify whether you already have) compatible lights, door locks, cameras, televisions, and more.
