The problem I have with this whole thing is that a few people have reported that they had their devices set not to install any betas, any updates. And despite having done that, they got it anyway. That is on Apple. It’s bad enough they decided it was OK to release a beta that doesn’t support

I totally agree with Peter. I have a pair of HomePods, and they totally blow the echo away. But they really are music listening devices, or podcasts, or playing your Apple TV, like Peter said. If you’re into all that other stuff, the trivia games etc., then the HomePod isn’t what you want.
