The new update includes new features and improvements, including improvements to Siri, Intercom, HomePod mini support and more.

In addition to iOS and iPadOS 14.1, Apple has released HomePod 14.1 software with improvements to Siri, Intercom, support for HomePod mini, and more.

iOS 14 offers Maps suggestions when the user asks HomePod for a specific location using Siri, and now you can easily open search results on iPhone with Handoff. Apple has also improved the timer and alarm function on the smart speaker, as well as allowing users to set a song from Apple Music as an alarm.

Intercom announced at Apple’s October event, is now available for all HomePod models with 14.1 software. Users can now send real-time audio messages from one HomePod to another within the same home and also to iOS devices via iCloud Family Sharing.

Also, with iOS 14 and HomePod Software 14.1, Apple allows users to modify their default music, podcast, and audiobook apps, but this requires developers to update their apps with the new APIs.

HomePod 14.1 software is now available to all users via the Home app.
