HomePod to Get 'FullRoom' Pairing Soon, Multi-Room Support to Follow Later

Apple is planning to update its HomePod soon with the ability to pair two devices together for 'FullRoom' sound, reports TechCrunch. Unfortunately, reviewers have confirmed that this won't be true stereo sound despite the description on Apple's website. The speakers will work together for a 'more immersive soundstage' but you can't set one for the left channel and another for the right.

In an apartment, the HomePod could not be louder and more room filling. But at home, in a 20×30′ great room with carpet on the floor, I did find myself wishing for it to be louder. This should be solved once Apple ships FullRoom — its support for two HomePods to be used in tandem but not in stereo. That’s coming soon, followed at a later date by the “multi room” function which lets a bunch of HomePods synchronize to play the same audio everywhere. But for now, small- to medium-sized rooms are fine, big rooms you may find the HomePod a smidge under powered.

Check out a selection of HomePod reviews here. The smart speaker is available for pre-order now and arrives in stores on February 9th.

Who would spend another $350 for a second speaker to put in the same room? At that price point you're better off just buying 5.1 premium speaker setup and using that
