Homepod is a smart speaker developed by Apple Inc. released in early 2018, available in two colors – White and Space Gray, running an iOS variation known as “audioOS”. The HomePod, integrating Siri, with a rounded, cylindrical shape, and a small touchscreen on its top, is able to play music, conduct text messaging, set Timer and etc. through speech control via Siri.

Apple likes locking users into its own ecosystem. There are always all kinds of limitations. The most annoying one is that we are confined to listen to Apple Music with Apple Music App or iTunes and unable to enjoy them on other Media Players. Besides, because of the DRM protection, we have to pay the subscription fee every month to listen to Apple songs. Once we discontinue the service, we will lose all access to the songs on the platform. Is there any way that we can keep Apple Music forever or listen to them on, let’s say, MP3 player? The following part will surprise you in a good way.
