They fixed Siri sounding like a idiot. The light are on. Now it’s the lights are on. Seemed like a monumental lift.

Really hoping they’ve added Default Speaker capabilities on the Apple TV. Currently only the bigger HomePod allows the feature, and so users have to select the HomePod mini as the output speaker every time you turn on the Apple TV

Could be my imagination but handoff now feels like U1 is being used. When my phone gets close to the HPM it vibrates and hands off. Before I had to tap the HPM with my phone and by tap I mean bang it against it to wake it up.
Totally unscientific but I wonder if they enabled this better handoff.
