Apple’s HomePod Mini smart speaker will get a few new skills when a software update switches on a temperature and humidity sensor that’s been lying dormant. 

Temperature and humidity sensing are newly listed in the HomePod Mini product description on Apple’s website. The news comes on the same day that Apple introduced a second-generation HomePod, which will also have the temperature and humidity sensor.

“The new built-in temperature and humidity sensor can measure indoor environments, so users can create automations that close the blinds or turn on the fan automatically when a certain temperature is reached in a room,” Apple said Wednesday in a release about the new HomePod

The sensor, which was spotted in HomePod Minis in 2021, will likely allow the smaller smart speaker the same ability. The sensor works best indoors between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius (59 to 86 Fahrenheit) and when humidity is between 30% and 70%, Apple says on its website.

Apple’s new HomePod is available for preorder now for $299 and will be available starting Feb. 3.
