In the US and UK, different news sources are available.So far you can say Hey Siri "give me" News, Business news, Music news, and Sports news.

FYI - audio books on the Google Play Store became available in the last week of Jan 2018.

If you are using Play Books on i OS, you can search and sample audio books plus play audio books you have already purchased.

In my Five Hundredth Podcast, I take you through setting up and navigating on the i Phone with physical switch's using speech output.

As well as navigating the i Phone, I take you through accessing an app (Vision Australia Connect) to read a daisy book.

The great thing about this for Voice Over users is that the call is live on your Home Pod, whilst Voice Over and the keypad if you have to use it with automated system stays on the i Phone.

Consequently you have two different audio sources, making it much easier to either listen to the phone call or use your i Phone.(Or at least I think that will work; I don't have an i Thing to test.)In any case, this is going to be a pain for users.In this demo, I show you how to play media on your i Phone (such as an Audible book) and music playing on Home Pod (via Hey Siri play xx), and then via Control Centre, change between i Phone and Home Pod.i Tunes is a digital media player, written by Apple Computer, for playing and organizing digital music and video files.Additionally, the program connects to the i Tunes Music Store which allows users to purchase digital music files that can be played by i Tunes. In this demo, I take you through setting up my Amazon Echo Dot via the Amazon Alexa app now that the Echo is officially supported in Australia as of Feb 1 2018.
