Apple has made it easier to navigate through the new HomePod smart speaker, thanks to the new set of tutorial videos freshly uploaded on YouTube.

All videos found on the company’s Apple Support YouTube channel run an average of just one minute but are instructive enough to provide the key details required to easily master the latest of Apple’s hardware release. The tutorial sufficiently covered three areas that will allow one to get going on the HomePod real quick.

The clips touched on the speaker’s basic setting configurations, the touch controls, and making full use of Siri to listen to music on the smart device.

Taking Control Of the HomePod

Coming right out of the box, the HomePod is easy to set, as the whole routine merely involves plug and play. Once the speaker has been fired up and paired with an iPhone or iPad, it is programed to work like a charm. Afterward, everything else is all about voice command, but the device gets more optimal with the help from the Home app.

As shown in the tutorial clip titled “How to Adjust HomePod Settings,” the Home app offers useful tweaks that will make Siri work on the speaker as intended by the user. If one wishes the digital assistant to respond on voice prompt or touch gestures, this can be activated (and deactivated) on the HomePod setting menu of the Home app.

In the same way, users can normalize the volume for all tunes that will play on the speaker by turning on the Sound Check mode. There is an option too to keep the HomePod from playing explicit music, which should come handy for users with kids at home.
