I was thinking on getting a HomePod, would you recommend me to wait for a HomePod 2 or getting two minis? I'm concern about the chip and new features.
Check the diagrams homepods have a down firing base and 7 directional speakers. The mini does not support atmos
Try using the HomePod as the Apple TV audio output with a TV acting sort of like a sound bar and you will see Apple doesn’t care about this case usage at all. They seem to hate it.I still don’t understand how Apple didn’t allow the mini’s to work with the OG HomePod to create 5 or even 7.1 surround. It seems so obvious.
I use my HomePod as my speaker for my Mac. That’s the beauty of the Apple ecosystemI just wish they would enable HomePod or HomePod mini to be used as a regular speaker for your Mac. I would love to be able to use it for zoom and other apps now - however you can't add them as a typical bluetooth speaker to your Mac, iPad, etc. This seems to be a real loss right now - we are buying up $100 speakerphone pucks at work like crazy, but we can't consider using HomePod minis because of that one issue.
