Apple's HomePod Set to Barge Into Hot Speaker Market

"Apple is restricting Siri support for third-party applications, which may hamper growth of the product ecosystem and play as an advantage to competitors," said Dina Abdelrazik, a research analyst with Parks Associates.

Where voice commands are processed for the HomePod also could be a problem for the product, she noted.

"Apple is shifting the processing of vocal commands away from the HomePod and onto an iOS device paired to the HomePod," Abdelrazik told TechNewsWorld. "That opens up a realm of issues."
