From playing our favorite songs, to reporting the weather, to ordering a car service for us, gadgets like Amazon’s Echo, Google’s Home, and Apple’s HomePod make our day-to-day lives significantly better. The downside? They’ll cost you. Most models are several hundred dollars, and since they aren’t as essential as food or your Wi-Fi bill, it can be hard to justify the splurge.
But thanks to this Apple HomePod Giveaway, it’s possible to get a virtual, personal assistant for free. That’s right, free.
The HomePod blends two favorite Apple features — Apple Music and Siri — into one, convenient device, and got rave reviews from Mashable’s Ray Wong:
HomePod really hits the sweet spot. It’s as compact as a Sonos One, gets nearly as loud as a Google Home Max, and produces what I feel is the best sounding audio across all music genres. It brings the bass, but still satisfies the rest of the sound spectrum.
Apple struck gold with its innovative iPod nearly a decade ago, and this home speaker is just as revolutionary. It boasts an algorithm that analyzes songs, seven tweeters that offer great sound at every angle, and an A8 chip that adjusts the sound quality for you. Oh, and did we mention it has a spatial awareness feature that separates the music into dynamic and ambient sound? Casual.
We assume you’ll mostly use the HomePod to blast some sweet tunes; however, it can also set reminders, share the latest news, send messages, and much more.
Apple’s HomePod usually costs $349, but you can enter this giveaway and get it for free. There are a couple of things to remember before signing up: Apple isn’t affiliated with this giveaway and, like any other sweepstakes, there are terms and conditions to read. And, of course, entering the giveaway doesn’t guarantee you’ll win.
But when the winnings are this good, why not sign up?
