Apple developing new Apple TV with HomePod functionality and a camera?

I think that if this report by Mark Gurman at Bloomberg is to be believed Apple are developing a new ‘home’ product that combines an Apple TV, HomePod and Camera to use FaceTime and I think it’s about time.

It makes perfect sense to have something that we could use instead of crowding around the nearest phone or iPad to do video calling. Personally on the speaker front I’d love more of a sound-bar approach but a new speaker in the living room might come in handy to amplify the sound of the call not just for music.

Assuming the Apple TV is there given the video from the FaceTime call would appear on your big screen TV so may as well add AppleTV to it too.

Sounds interesting.
