China has hundreds of tech companies making so-called AI speakers with built-in AI assistants. I should say over 50% of them are predictably crappy. The HomePod has not yet arrived in Canada or China, so I can’t give it a whirl at the moment. Given Siri’s performance on iOS/macOS devices and tv, it’s expected to be overshadowed by a few aggressive competitors but still leagues beyond China-made cheapos.
