What's more, Sonos supports more streaming platforms than HomePod, and not only works with Alexa out of the box but also promises to make nice soon with the Google Assistant, and, yes, Siri.

With this being central to the speaker systems, each assistant is more than adequate, but each carries its own advantages and disadvantages. Alexa and Google can draw upon lots of information even before you add third-party skills; Siri on HomePod can get stumped by requests an iPhone can handle.

The Google Home Max is available in Chalk and Charcoal for $399. Now that they've missed the chance of competing for sales during the holidays, overall interest in Apple's smart speaker may have continued to die down.

That's how I was able to play Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, SiriusXM and other services through the speaker, without any assistance from Siri.

The device, which combines the company's digital personal assistant, Siri, with a high-performance audio speaker, connects to your home WiFi network and streams music, digital radio stations, news, podcasts and more, directly from the internet. Indeed, it could be argued that the Amazon HomePod is really being marketed as a music playback system with some AI functionality included, rather than the assistant-emphasis that both Amazon and Google have made with their products.
