Can You Do All These Siri Commands on HomePod Too?

Yep, totally! Apple’s HomePod is designed to extend the functionality of Siri outside your iPhone and/or iPad. If you’re rocking a HomePod at home or in the office, you can use any of the above commands and Siri (inside HomePod) will take care of them.

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg with respect to Siri’s features – she can do a lot of cool stuff and, best of all, Siri is now available on pretty much ALL Apple products.

However, if you’re using multiple Apple devices – say, an iPhone and a HomePod – in the same room, it’d be great to be able to set up multiple Siri activation phrases. However, this currently is NOT possible and it is totally annoying. For this reason, you need to be careful when you’re using Siri, especially if you’re in the same room as another Apple device – like your HomePod. Why? Because if you say, “Hey, Siri” both your HomePod and iPhone will activate.

Why hasn’t Apple fixed this yet? I honestly have no idea, but considering how integrated Siri is into Apple’s products, adding this ability into Siri’s source-code would make a lot of sense. You could then change the name of your HomePod to something completely different, like “Hey, HomePod,” for instance.
