    With warmer weather approaching most areas, has anyone moved their HomePod from inside to listening outside? If so did the playback dramatically change? I could see use cases of being on the patio, decks, and lounging areas in backyards within wifi.

    I realize it is an inside device, but just wondered how many people are deciding to move their HomePod outside within wifi range, and the sound change they experience.

    I move mine out when we are all in the backyard. It sounds great. It doesn't stay out there when I'm done, but it works fantastically and the sound is better than any other device I've brought outside. I actually just had the outside outlet rewired to handle more load, so I can use some outdoor lighting and the HomePod on the same outlet. I can see entertaining out there with dinner being lots of fun, especially with music anyone can pick with their voice. So I think it sounds good enough to have paid for that.

    I have used it on my back porch and it sounds great.
