    Thanks for the video. I am considering buying one. I am wondering if we can set a scene which uses the HomePod as a music player. e.g. in the morning, if I open the curtain where there is a motion sensor been activated, then HomePod will play my favorite song automatically? Can we do that now?

    Quick question, so I use Lutron lighting but in order for Siri to turn the lights on and off I have to be on the same WiFi as my Lutron Smart Bridge, so will the HomePod be able to turn my lights on and off?

    Great video, I have a Sonos Play 5 and have been wondering whether I should switch to the home pod. It does look great but with Airplay 2 on the way I will definitely stick to your advice!
