Walmart is offering Apple’s HomePod mini in white for $74.17 shipped. Normally $99, today’s deal saves $25 and marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked, beating our previous mention by $1. Apple’s HomePod mini is a great way to bring Siri, Apple Music, Thread support, and smart home control to any room of your house. With the ability to play/pause your music and change the volume with either touch controls or through voice commands, HomePod mini delivers a versatile experience all around. You’ll also find Apple’s new U1 chip that allows for quick music handoff from your phone. Get a closer look in our coverage over at 9to5Mac. Head below for more.
If you’re not in Apple’s ecosystem, consider picking up the latest Amazon Echo Dot. It’s currently $35 on sale at Amazon, which makes it a great budget-focused alternative to the HomePod mini above. Sure, you won’t find Siri, HomeKit, Thread, or the U1 chip, but in the end, Amazon’s Echo Dot does still work with Apple Music making it a versatile option for your smart home setup.
