“HomePod Software Version 14.5: This update includes general performance and stability improvements.”
With HomePod 14.5 latest beta, 9to5Mac was able to confirm that Siri’s additional voices have been added to this build. With iOS 14.5 beta 6, Siri no longer defaults to a female voice.
HomePod OS is based on the Apple TV software. 9to5Mac discovered that the tvOS 14.5 beta 6 brought pieces of evidence that a new Apple TV is on the way, with 120Hz support and a new Remote.
