Are you confused about what HomePod can and can’t play? If so, Apple has now updated HomePod’s technical specifications with a handy list of all the audio sources that the Siri-powered wireless speaker supports out of the box.
While an Apple Music subscription is required for full music functionality, HomePod does let you play your purchased music from iTunes Store, as well as stream the Beats 1 radio station and listen to your favorite podcasts for free.
As part of ongoing renovations, Apple’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan will feature a dedicated broadcasting booth for the company’s Beats 1 Radio station, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke with MacRumors. It will be a “very unique area” for broadcasting Beats 1, said the source.
Apple’s global 24/7 Internet radio station, Beats 1 Radio, has gone live in Singapore on Tuesday. As first reported by Mashable, the online radio station has arrived to Singapore almost two years after Apple’s streaming music service first launched in the country. Beats 1 Radio debuted in 100+ countries. The online show does not require an Apple Music subscription to listen to and is being aired live from Los Angeles, New York and London, with an anchor DJ producing the show in each city.
