Amazon made a smart speaker called the Echo is November 2014. You can ask about things like the weather, music, and smart home devices. Apple also made a smart speaker in February 2018. Apple’s speaker is able to do the same things but they are still very different. HomePod only works with iPhone while Echo works with many devices. HomePod and Echo both come in black and white. For HomePod you need to have Apple Music to play any song and ask for a song with your voice. Although, Echo can play from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, and more. Apple HomePod starts at $349 which is a bit pricey for this kind for speaker. Amazon Echo starts at $149.99. In my opinion, HomePod is not near as close as the Amazon Echo. HomePod needs to start getting Spotify and other music services on the HomePod. Also, they should put Android capability on their HomePod. If you would like to see more about any of the speakers, click the buttons below. I hope they can make the HomePod a bit better. But for now, Echo wins.
