Homepod sales may be closer to 1-1.5m than 3m since the speaker launched • Mac Rumors
Joe Rossignol:
<p>HomePod shipments totaled an estimated 700,000 units in the second quarter of 2018, giving Apple a roughly 6% share of the worldwide smart speaker market, according to research firm Strategy Analytics.

Strategy Analytics previously estimated HomePod shipments totaled 600,000 units in the first quarter of 2018, suggesting that worldwide shipments have reached 1.3m units since the speaker became available to order in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom in late January.

That figure is much lower than one shared by research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, which recently estimated Apple has sold 3m HomePods in the United States alone since the speaker launched.

The significant variance in the datasets stems from the fact that Apple doesn't disclose HomePod sales, instead grouping the speaker under its "Other Products" category in its earnings reports, alongside the Apple Watch, Apple TV, AirPods, Beats, iPod touch, and other Apple and third-party accessories.

Apple reported revenue of $3.74bn from its "Other Products" category last quarter, up 37% from $2.73bn in the year-ago quarter.

Shipments aren't sales, either, so it's impossible to know exactly how many HomePods ended up in the hands of customers.

If we had to guess, we'd say the Strategy Analytics numbers are probably more within the ballpark, as the HomePod is a niche product.</p>

Niche, certainly. Now the question is: could it carve out a bigger niche if it "did more", a la Amazon Echo and Google Home? Or are those niche too, but just got in earlier to the game, and captured lots of early adopters?

My feeling is that we'll find out in the next couple of quarters - by January, when we've had both CES and sales estimates for the Christmas quarter - whether Amazon and Google (and Apple) have voice-driven speaker hits on their hands, or just another flash in the technological pan. Michael Love, on Twitter, is <a href="https://twitter.com/elkmovie/status/1029378366531620865">pretty sure it's the latter</a>.

Apple’s AirPlay 2 with multiroom audio streaming and stereo HomePod pairing is here - The Verge
iOS 11.4 is available now, and it comes with two notable new features: Messages in the Cloud and AirPlay 2. AirPlay 2 is a big deal: it adds multiroom support so multiple AirPlay 2 devices from a wide variety of manufacturers can all play the same music around your house, and it allows two HomePods to play as a stereo pair.
