HomePod mini could soon launch in these four new countries
Apple could soon expand the HomePod mini to customers in four new countries, with the iPhone maker adding Siri language support in Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish with recent software updates, with Danish rumored to be in testing, hinting at a possible expansion of the HomePod to Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
First released in 2020, the HomePod mini features an Apple-designed acoustic waveguide for a 360-degree audio experience, a three-microphone array to listen for “Hey Siri” commands, smart home controls, and more, available in five colors including White, Orange, Blue, Yellow, and Space Gray.
HomePod mini uses computational audio to provide a rich and detailed acoustic experience and deliver peak performance. To achieve big sound in a compact design, the speaker uses an Apple S5 chip that runs software to analyze the characteristics of the music. It also applies to tune models to optimize loudness, adjust the dynamic range, and control the movement of the driver and passive radiators, all in real-time.
As noted by MacRumors, the recently added support for Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish hint that Apple is preparing to expand the availability of the speaker to new countries across Europe, adding to the near 20 countries where the HomePod is currently available.
