Apple has been testing Swedish language support for Siri on the HomePod mini for at least two months, says a report from Macradion. This suggests that the HomePod mini will be released in Sweden at some point this year.
We’ll also likely see a HomePod mini launch in other countries during 2022, as the speaker gained support for languages spoken in more countries with a software update back in December:
- Dutch (Belgium)
- French (Belgium)
- French (Switzerland)
- German (Switzerland)
- Italian (Switzerland)
Macradion reported that Apple has contracted with a third-party company to send special HomePod minis with Swedish support to select individuals for testing purposes.
First released in October 2020, the HomePod mini is currently available in the United States, Australia, Austria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.
Apple began offering the HomePod mini in yellow, orange, and blue colors in November 2021.
