Apple’s HomePod comes with a long list of fine print. If you own an iOS device, subscribe to Apple Music, can live with Siri’s limited capabilities, care about music quality, and you’re OK with dropping $350 on a smart speaker, you’ll love HomePod. It’s phenomenal.
But if you don’t meet these exact requirements (i.e. you use Android or prefer Spotify), you should stop reading right now because HomePod’s shortcomings will only frustrate you.
