HomePod is a brand-new product, which was launched by Apple in February 2018. It is a smart speaker that allows users to enjoy Apple Music and Podcast, as a "smart speaker", HomePod also provides smart home service, remote access service and of course, Siri, the smart virtual assistant of Apple. As we mentioned, as their own product of Apple, users can enjoy Apple Music songs through HomePod, but also, they will need a subscription to do this. We will keep talking about HomePod and how to play Apple Music on HomePod in this article, read it and you will know.

Something You Should Know about HomePod

When Apple introduced HomePod in early 2018, the topic of HomePod became popular. This is Apple's first smart speaker, and HomePod seems to borrow half the name of the iPod. At that time, this was a very novel product after all, and indeed many features were not fully developed. Although Apple claims that HomePod's future focus is "smart", for now, it's more important and the feature that people use more often is to play music. It has seven tweeters in its base and a four-inch woofer (Apple does not specify Hz frequency range) towards the top, as well as six microphones used for voice control and acoustic optimization. Based on this parameter, there is no doubt that HomePod has excellent music playback quality and sound control features.

HomePod is now priced at $299 on BestBuy, and Apple's official price for HomePod is $349, which is higher than other Apple's latest music playback products like iPod Touch 7. Is it worth the price? Everyone has a different opinion. Today we will first take a look at HomePod's ability to play music. Just like we mentioned above, as Apple's own product, the quickest and most convenient way to play music on HomePod is play by Apple Music, this is also the recommended way by Apple. But the problem is, you will need a subscription to Apple Music unless you just want to stream stuff from your iPhone – and even that can only be done using AirPlay.

Well, things become not so "smart" if you choose to use AirPlay to play music on a smart speaker, right? Especially when HomePod allows users to play Apple Music by waking up the virtual smart assistant Siri. You just need to say "Hey Siri, play a song from my Apple Music" to HomePod and your song will be played immediately. To be honest, this is indeed a smarter and cooler way. Besides, HomePod does not support using Bluetooth streaming, which means you cannot stream music on HomePod directly through Bluetooth like other devices.

Need Subscription to Play Apple Music on HomePod

Let's get back to the problem, a subscription to Apple Music is needed if you want to play Apple Music on HomePod in a smarter and more convenient way. An individual subscription to Apple Music costs $9.99 per month and a family subscription to Apple Music costs $14.99 per month, well, after paying $349 for the HomePod and now a $9.99 subscription for every month, is there anything more "unsmart" than this?
