How bad is Siri on homepods?

Cupertino, October 1, 2023

Siri, as I recall, was a disaster on HomePods, even worse than on the iPhone. Fast forward a few years, now we have updated and refreshed versions. Is a HomePod Mini worth considering for voice commands? My intended use includes setting reminders, controlling smart plugs, dimming lights, and playing albums on Apple Music. I've tried both UK and US English and find that about 60% of my prompts have a word or two incorrect. Sometimes it's so hectic that I can't even remember what I wanted to be reminded of because of my short-term memory. I only need the smaller model, but if the superior performance is noticeable I will buy the larger one. I own a Homey Pro, which technically allows me to use any voice assistant I prefer. However, I don't trust Amazon and Google, especially since I have a microphone that is always on in my living room. I'm well aware that Apple's privacy claims are bogus, but I'm more comfortable with Apple handling my personal information than Google, a company whose only notable income is from monetizing personal data. I already own a Sonos speaker that supports these assistants, so I might find a way to disable them. But I'd probably limit it to turning things on and off. I don't care about the cost only concern is if it will be frustrating or usable. Any personal experience or thoughts on Siri's performance on HomePods would be greatly appreciated. **TLDR** How does Siri currently perform on current HomePods. The main use is reminders and control of smart devices.
