Apple Shares New HomePod Tutorial Videos on YouTube

Following the launch of the HomePod, Apple updated its dedicated YouTube support channel with three new tutorials for the smart speaker, walking users through features like using Siri to play music, using the HomePod's touch controls, and adjusting the HomePod settings.

Each tutorial video is about a minute in length, and in the description, Apple links relevant support documents, which can be useful for finding additional HomePod documentation.


Apple's YouTube support channel, introduced back in November, is where Apple shares tutorial videos that are designed to provide users with tips on using their iPhones, iPads, Macs, and other devices.

Along with the new HomePod videos, Apple has in the past shared quick tips on features like 3D Touch, iCloud backups, editing videos, sending emails, signing documents, taking screenshots, deleting photos, and more.

I absolutely love my Homepod. Using Siri to do the basics is a breeze, but I don't need her to give me the quadratic formula... unlike most people.

Loving my HomePod. But it did get me thinking: wouldn’t it be good if Home let you automate HomePod? It appears as a HomeKit device, but you can’t control it at all. I’m thinking something like “create a scene for good morning” so you say “hey Siri, good morning” and the scene:

* Says “good morning”
* Reads the latest news
* After news, plays my morning mix, or some internet radio station

And if you had other devices you could open the blinds, or turn on lights etc.

This thing is way to expensive for what it does. A speaker that you can talk to, to play music and read you news. I am sorry. I just don't get it. How does this compete with Amazon at all? Is this a Sonos competitor or an Echo competitor? If the ansewer is Echo, this is a big time fail until it can be used with Amazons services. Unless Apple plans on buying Target or something.

Until Siri can start talking dirty to me I am not sold.

I also want Siri to watch my kids while I am out drinking and do my taxes for me. If it can't do that then what the hell is it for?
