At WWDC 2021, Apple just announced that you can use the HomePod mini as a TV speaker this year.
HomePod mini as a TV speaker later this year!
The HomePod mini is a small, stylish, smart speaker. Now Apple gives us the opportunity to use the HomePod mini as a TV speaker. And it gets even better! You can also use two HomePod minis in stereo mode as TV speakers. According to Apple, there will also be lossless sound for the HomePod mini. Lossless sound describes a lossless sound quality. Hopefully Dolby Atmos will also be supported by HomePod mini. So we actually have a smart alternative to conventional soundbars for little money.
In March, Apple announced that it would stop selling the HomePod. Apple wants to focus more on the HomePod mini. The HomePod mini will also be available in Austria, Ireland and New Zealand at the end of this month. The HomePod mini is available in Germany for € 99.
