Apple on Wednesday announced second-generation HomePod that delivers next-level acoustics in a gorgeous, iconic design.

Powered by the S7 chip, Apple’s HomePod comes with five tweeters, Spatial audio, sound recognition for up to six voices, and the ability to create HomePod stereo pairs.

The second generation HomePod features the same 4-inch high excursion woofer as before. New five horn-loaded tweeters replaces the seven on the original model.

The 2nd generation HomePod also comes with room sensing technology that recognises sound reflections nearby surfaces to determine if it is against a wall or freestanding to adapt sound output accordingly, the company shared.

HomePod (2nd generation) is available for Rs 32,900, with availability beginning February 3.

The HomePod also comes with the capability to connect with two or more HomePod or HomePod mini speakers to create a stereo pair for a more immersive soundstage experience.

HomePod is available in white and midnight, a new colour made with 100 per cent recycled mesh fabric, with a colour-matched woven power cable.

HomePod can also recognise up to six voices, so each member of the home can hear their personal playlists, ask for reminders, and set calendar events.
