Apple has released a software update for the HomePod that brings stereo pairing, advanced beamforming, AirPlay 2, and Siri Calendar support.

iOS 11.4 includes AirPlay 2 for multi-room audio, creation of HomePod stereo pairs, and Calendar support for HomePod. (Calendar is only available in US, UK, Australia).

What's New:
● Place two HomePod in the same room and create a stereo pair
● Each HomePod in a pair automatically senses its location in the room
● Advanced beamforming provides wider soundstage than traditional stereo pair
● Use AirPlay 2 to play the same song everywhere or difference songs in different rooms to multiple HomePod and other AirPlay 2-enabled speakers
● Schedule, cancel, and stay up to date with your Calendar appointments (available in US, UK, Australia).

You can wait for the HomePod to update automatically or initiate the update yourself from the Home app. More details on AirPlay 2 and HomePod Stereo Pairs can be found here.
