At Apple’s WWDC 2020 Keynote today, the company announced that HomePod will be getting a new feature that let it announce when a HomeKit connected smart doorbell has been rung. This update also brings support for third-party music services for the first time, which will allow the speaker to work with Spotify, Pandora and others by default without the need of using AirPlay.
