Looking for an quick and easy meeting presentation? Why not combine Apple’s recent HomePod (2nd generation) demo with a quick video introduction?

Here are some steps to offer your members a look:

Start out with a quick introductory video:

Apple’s Home Pod (2nd generation)

Check out the design

  • Point out the refined design, edge-to-edge illuminated touch surface, seamless mesh fabric, and colors in white and midnight. Mention that midnight mesh is made from 100 percent recycled materials.

Highlight the amazing sound

  • On HomePod mini, say, “Hey Siri, play pop music.” The amazing, 360-degree sound that’s surprisingly big for the size of HomePod mini.
  • On HomePod, say, “Hey Siri, play R&B” to hear the rich, deep bass and stunning high frequencies.
  • And, you can note that users can create a stereo pair with two HomePod (2nd generation) or two HomePod mini speakers for a wider, more immersive soundstage than traditional stereo speakers.
  • For fun, if you have two HomePod speakers show how they provide multi-room audio can be used to send an Intercom message.
  • On HomePod, say, “Hey Siri, play Made for Spatial Audio.” to hear the layered audio it provides
  • Use Siri to search for music by artist, song, decade, genre, mood, or activity. Say things like, “Hey Siri, play some ‘90s hip hop.” or ask Siri to play podcasts, radio stations, or ambient sounds.
  • Say things like, “Hey Siri, play Football Weekly,” or “Hey Siri, play ocean sounds.”
  • And, HomePod works seamlessly with Apple TV
  • Better yet, with eARC, you can make HomePod the audio system for all the other devices connected to your TV.
  • Tap the top of HomePod or HomePod mini to play or pause the music or adjust the volume, or touch and hold for Siri.
  • You can also keep listening to what’s playing on your iPhone by bringing it near HomePod or HomePod mini to hand it off.
  • You can get help with everyday tasks like the news, weather, and more.
  • Say things like, “Hey Siri, tell me the news,” “Hey Siri, what’s the high for today?” or, “Hey Siri, what does a humpback whale sound like?”
  • And, you can even use Siri with Find My to locate your other Apple devices (and loved ones who share their location).
  • Want to use HomePod or HomePod mini as a home hub to connect and control smart home accessories? Of course! You can can create automations to control their indoor climate with a built-in temperature and humidity sensor.

What about safety and security features?

  • With Sound Recognition,* if HomePod detects smoke or carbon monoxide alarms, you can receive an alert on your iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
  • Better yet, HomePod speakers are designed to protect privacy and security:  Siri only listens when you say, “Hey Siri.” Requests aren’t associated with your Apple ID, and data is used only to improve Siri.

And, that’s just the start 🙂

* Sound Recognition will be available in a software update later this spring and requires a separate update in the Home app.
