How to Add Calendar Events with HomePod
A voice assistant controls nearly all the available intelligent speakers today, and the HomePod is no different. After all, it’s Siri that makes the HomePod “intelligent.” No different than other Apple devices, HomePod utilizes Siri as the built-in voice assistant.
If you’re one of these users who haven’t been using Siri, it might take a little time to get used to Apple’s built-in voice assistant. In this article, we’ll be going over how you can add calendar events with HomePod, and how they will sync over to the other Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
How to Add Calendar Events with HomePod
Regardless if you’re using the HomePod or HomePod mini or older firmware, this will work. Follow the steps outlined below to add calendar events using just Siri on your HomePod. Below are the steps:
- To add a new calendar event, use the voice command “Hey Siri, add a calendar event.”
- Siri will ask you what date and time of your appointment. You’ll need to say it in your next reply. A faster way would be straightforward and say something such as, “Hey Siri, add an appointment to my calendar on Friday at 7 am.”
- If you wanted the event to have a name, you could include it in your voice command. Try saying: “Hey Siri, add a calendar event named Doctors Appointment.”
It’s that easy! Using Voice Commands, you have entered a calendar event with your HomePod.
Check what’s on your Calendar via HomePod
To see if there is anything on your calendar:
- Ask Siri, “Hey Siri, what’s on my calendar?”.
To be more specific about a certain day, you could use the voice command:
- “Hey Siri, what’s on my calendar for tomorrow.”
How-to Remove Calendar Events with HomePod
If you accidentally added the wrong event or date, you may also want to learn how to remove appointments. Check out below for the steps:
- You can begin with “Hey Siri, delete a calendar event,” and Siri will list out all calendar events. You can then pick the event you want to remove.
To remove a specific calendar event, use a command like this, “Hey Siri, delete the calendar event Doctors Appointment.”. When Siri asks for your approval, reply “Yes.” It’s that simple to add and remove calendar events using Siri on the HomePod.
Siri is only capable of deleting one event at a time, so if you’re trying to delete several calendar events, you will have to do it one at a time, which takes quite a while.
All the calendar events that you add using Siri on the HomePod will show up in the Calendar app on your iPhone, provided you’re the primary user of the HomePod.
It’s a convenient feature for the HomePod to play ambient sounds with a timer. Give it a shot, and let us know how it goes. Drop your feedback and comments below!
