HomePods listening capability is nuts
I was wearing my headset while playing Xbox with my brother yesterday when he decided to call out to Siri at his house for something. My HomePods somehow managed to hear him say “Hey Siri” from across the room from my headset that was on my head.
This isn’t the first time I’ve been wow’d from its ability to hear me. Another time I was in the shower a room away and told Siri to change the song while it was playing a song at 80% volume.
It’s so different from the experience I have with my Google Home where occasionally it doesn’t hear me even without any background noise.
