#legend x Apple HomePod Mini

See how some of our #legend100 influencers are using the new HomePod mini 

In the past few months, Apple has launched multiple new releases, but one new release that truly caught our attention was the HomePod mini. The HomePod mini is a smart speaker that is small enough to fit on your hand, but equipped with 360 surround sound audio -– in our opinion, one of the best sounding mini speakers out there. 

For something so small and unobtrusive, the HomePod mini packs a punch with its great bass and clarity at all volume levels. However, the real highlight is giving users an entry point to experience what a smart home could potentially be like. The HomePod mini has multiple functions including multi-pod syncing, intercom functions for those lucky enough to have one HomePod mini in each room, and of course – Siri functions. 

For those using Apple music or Spotify, not only can you ask Siri for songs and playlists, one of the best features is that you can “beam” your music directly into the speaker by lightly touching your phone to the speaker. 

The design in itself is sleek and definitely feels premium to the touch. For those who are living deep in the Apple ecosystem, the HomePod mini is definitely a fun new addition. Check out how some of our #legend100 influencers are using their HomePod Minis:

Where do you use your HomePod Mini?

I use it in my home office.

What is your go-to playlist you love to listen to on your HomePod Mini? 

Olafur Arnolds & Alice Sara Ott ‘s <The Chopin Project> is my all time favourite. I like listening to instrumental music or movie soundtrack while working on my art because it can gives me inspiration and puts me in the right mood to get focused, while lyrics always distract me. <The Chopin Project> gives me strong feeling of solitude that takes me into my world of creation easily.

Ellie Furuya

Where do you use your HomePod Mini?

I use it in the kitchen because our sound system doesn’t reach this part of the apartment when the door shuts! It’s great for playing music while I cook, for setting timers, and getting info like converting Fahrenheit to Celsius without having to scramble for my phone.

What are your favourite Siri commands for your HomePod Mini?

I come into the kitchen every morning to make coffee, and while I wait, I’ll ask questions like what’s the weather forecast for the day, and what’s on my calendar for today. It’s amazing that I don’t have to look at a screen to get this information, and can rest my eyes for longer before I start the day.

What is your go-to playlist you love to listen to on your HomePod Mini? 

Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of uplifting, feel-good and throwback tunes that make chopping onions a lot more fun. Here’s my go-to playlist!

 Where do you use your HomePod Mini? 

The kitchen, as it’s my personal workshop.. I get to cook for my family, bake little goodies and it’s my space to just be me. It always makes me really happy to cook for my loved ones. Cooking with music and maybe a glass of wine while the sun sets is my perfect moment…

Listen to Angie’s playlist here.

What are your favorite Siri commands for your HomePod Mini?

“Hey Siri! Find my iPhone!” I somehow always misplace my phone somewhere, or my son decides to take it and hide it. I either use the HomePod mini or my Apple watch to find where it is.
