At Wednesday’s “Gather round” event, Apple announced that its HomePod wireless speaker will be received several new features in a free software update. The features mostly involve improvements to Siri, to further enhance the HomePod’s ability as a digital assistant.
The Siri improvements in HomePod will be available on September 17 and include:
Song search by lyrics: HomePod users will be able to make song search based on the lyrics of a song. You can ask, “Hey Siri, play the song that goes…” and then you can state the lyric. No word on if the lyrics field in your iTunes library will need to be completed for this feature to work.
