Siri Can Now Play You a Daily News Podcast

Apple has rolled out a new feature in iOS 11.2.5 that will play a daily news podcast via the Apple Podcasts app. “Hey Siri, play me the news” will default to playing a news briefing from NPR in the US but you can switch it to Fox News, CNN or The Washington Post.

As 9to5Mac notes, this does feel like a feature that was made for the delayed HomePod.

Speaking of the HomePod, on the rumor mill there are reports of an initial 1 million HomePods being shipped to Apple and it is expected to be released in the next 4-6 weeks.
