Hi could anyone tell me what Bluetooth speakers work best with Siri, and Apple Music? What speaker can I connect with Siri to talk to? What speaker can I ask Siri to play a song using Apple Music? I know there is ue boom 2, jbl charge 3, jbl flip 3, do these work? Which is the best? Is there any other better? Thanks. Have a great day.

That's not accurate. Apple confirmed the HomePod is delayed, but they never specified "January" as a release date. All they stated is 'early 2018' for a potential release.

"We can't wait for people to experience HomePod, Apple's breakthrough wireless speaker for the home, but we need a little more time before it's ready for our customers. We'll start shipping in the US, UK and Australia in early 2018."

The Sonos One should be getting Siri support.... When we do not know though.
Keep in mind that this, like UE is actually a portal to the iPhone's Siri (no iPhone, no Siri). The HomePod will have a Siri tailored specifically for it and independent of the iPhone. Of course this brings up a pet peeve of mine and what I see as one of Siri's stumbling blocks. Siri should be a singularity across all devices and not a collection of limited Siri systems.

Oh! So no iphone or iPad means No Siri on Sonos One? If so, then I wish I'd gone for An echo 2 during black Friday!

I went ahead and bought a google home mini. I like it and can still buy it for $29. It uses google assistant.
