Useful voice commands for HomePod

It doesn’t matter what model of HomePod you have, in any case, it’s very easy to forget about all the features of the speaker. Most likely, you are not using all the available voice commands for your speaker, and we will help you fix this.

Background sounds

Many are accustomed to falling asleep to some background sounds. You can ask your HomePod to turn on background sounds before bed. Here are the options available:

  • Ocean
  • rain
  • night

  • fireplace
  • stream
  • White noise

Try each of the available sounds to find the one that suits you best. These sounds help not only fall asleep, but also focus on tasks.
