A future Apple HomePod could support facial and image recognition

    Okay I don’t know about you, but facial recognition on a speaker doesn’t seem very smart to me. Especially when you setup a speaker in the room. It’s not like you are going to get close to it in order for the speaker to recognize you.

    Now with a camera on this speaker device, then it could double as a security camera as well. That makes more sense than actual facial recognition or FaceID.

      No doubt it’ll be a reason for them to charge even more money for this crap. I mean who seriously is going to buy this in any great numbers to begin with? Siri is about as dumb as a sack of hammers compared to Alexa and the Google Assistant or even Cortana.
