HomePod Now Supports Multiple Timers

Juli Clover:

The update lets you use Siri to search for your favorite songs using song lyrics, and it lets you create multiple timers. It also allows you to make and receive phone calls right from the HomePod.

The HomePod could previously be used as a speakerphone, but after the update, it will be able to be used to place and answer phone calls without the need to transfer a call from the iPhone.

HomePod will be able to ping your iPhone or any of your other Apple devices so you can find them in your Home, and it works with Siri Shortcuts, a new feature introduced in iOS 12.

Why is iOS 12 still limited to a single timer?

Previously: Multiple iOS Timers.

Update (2018-09-28): Marco Arment reports that Siri’s initial support for multiple timers is not very reliable.
