    Apple announced its HomePod smart speaker at WWDC 2017, marking its entry into that market as well as its formal manifestation of the concept of an all-Siri voice-controlled smart home in the future. With a 4-inch driver, a beamforming-capable 7-tweeter array, 6-microphone far field voice recognition array, acoustic modeling, multi-channel echo cancellation (useful for calling features undoubtedly to come), software-based distortion reduction, and automatic room adjustments thanks to its microphones, HomePod is thus far the most sophisticated audio product in the smart speaker race. HomePod is slated for December 2017 release in the US, UK, and Australia, at $349 USD.

    Apple announced the AirPlay 2 wireless audio standard at its WWDC 2017 event. The successor to its original AirPlay Wi-Fi based audio standard, AirPlay 2 now enables multi-room audio playback, versus the single source and destination nature of the original. AirPlay 2 is incorporated into iOS 11, and is compatible with HomeKit, to allow AirPlay 2-compatible speakers to be a controllable device within a HomeKit smart home scenario. AirPlay 2 also enables the use of Siri to initiate and control playback to compatible speakers and devices (such as Apple TV). The also-announced AirPlay 2 API allows third party apps to play to AirPlay 2 devices.
