Apple TV with HomePod and FaceTime camera: According to Bloomberg Apple is working on a new smarthome product that will include the Apple TV media player, the HomePod and a FaceTime camera in a single device. This should provide a complete multimedia device. According to Bloomberg, this is still the first phase of development and we do not have to expect the product in the near future. If it ever actually hits the market at all.

The new all-in-one device comes with the features you expect from Apple TV, such as access to your favorite streaming apps and games. The new media player for your television should then be combined with a HomePod speaker. This means you also have a smart speaker with Siri at home. Finally, it is also intended that you can FaceTime with the built-in camera. This camera should then also serve as a security camera.
The current Apple TV box in front of your television already supports the voice assistant Siri, but you have to press a button on the remote control to access it. This new product also serves as a smart speaker and will always listen to your commands.
Also a smart display from Apple on the way?
In the same report from Bloomberg, it also emerges that the original HomePod was simply too expensive for many consumers. The HomePod Mini is much better appreciated by critics and consumers. The company is also considering bringing a smart display to the market. This would be similar to the Google Nest Hub. It combines a HomePod speaker with a touchscreen.
