Many of us have wanted a device like this from the very moment the original HomePod was announced. I have two HomePods in my house — one in the kitchen and one in our son Josh’s room. I think we’ll probably end up with at least two of these HomePod Minis.
I’m not sure exactly where the Minis specifically will end up because we’ll probably juggle around our existing HomePods a bit. But I know I want a smart speaker in my home office and in our living room.
The Intercom feature sounds neat, too:
With more than one HomePod in the house, you can easily communicate with your family members by voice using Intercom. Ask Siri to send your message to the whole house or to individual rooms — and everyone can easily respond.
Throwing a message to my wife from the kitchen while she’s in Josh’s room sounds fantastic. It’s one of those features that seems so unbelievably obvious once you hear about it.
