When using Apple Music though, the HomePod can display an impressive level of knowledge.

The HomePod is one of the priciest home speaker models out there, priced just $50 less than the Google Home Max.

However, Alexa delivers a more flexible package than either the Google Assistant or Apple HomePod.

"The HomePod sounds great but on the surface, it's debatable whether it's great enough to justify the limitations of its smart features when compared purely on those merits and not as a component of the Apple ecosystem".

There are no bones about it; HomePod is a superb wireless audio speaker.

But Apple Music subscribers with Android phones get shortchanged because Apple Music integration only works when there is a matching iPhone in the same Wi-Fi network.
