Apple HomePod vs Google Home vs Amazon Echo 2nd gen: Features comparison
Apple's HomePod was announced more than half an year ago but is yet to arrive to the market. However, it seems that all this time couldn't help Apple come up with a finished product as the HomePod will be arriving without essential functionalities like stereo sound and multi-room audio at launch as these are reportedly coming later this year.


Needless to say, the competition did not sleep and had the chance to populate the market with a slew of many not half-bad smart speakers that fill the void Apple . Gadgets like the Google Home, Google Home mini, Google Home Max, and Amazon Echo 2nd-gen are already doing their mojo inside users' houses. Will the HomePod with its mediocre Siri assistant convince enough people to get one and use it in lieu of a Google- or Amazon-made ones which are powered by the more capable Google Assistant and Alexa?

But for anyone out there who hasn't got themselves a smart home gadget yet, there's only one way we can help, and that's by comparing all the features of the Apple HomePod, Google Home, and Amazon's latest Echo in tabular format.
