Apple has directed its marketing focus to sound quality, emphasizing technologies like computational audio, beamforming, and the use of seven separate tweeters to create a room-filling sound. In the video, Apple walks users through adjusting setting such as the linked iCloud account, explicit content, and more.

One video, for instance, convert using the Home application to adjust HomePod settings.

Just say "Hey Siri" before you give any command. Apple highlights that you can double tap to skip to the next track, triple tap to go to the previous track, and tap once to play/pause. The plus and minus signs control the volume, and touching and holding will activate Siri without saying "Hey Siri". Tapping the top of the HomePod pauses and plays your music. You'll also find a few settings related to Siri activations, so you can disable "Hey, Siri" commands and touch activations per your preferences.
