HomePod Now Available for Sale in India

After announcing back in late January that the HomePod would be coming soon to India, the company today began sending out emails to customers letting them know that the Siri-powered smart speaker is now available.

welcome homepod india
Apple's HomePod page in India now has a "Buy" button, although with the company not yet operating its own online storefront in the country, the button redirects to a search tool for local and online resellers. We're not yet seeing HomePod stock at major retail partners Amazon.in, Flipkart, and Paytm, but presumably listings should be popping up shortly.

HomePod is priced at ₹19,900 in India, which is equivalent to about $263 in the United States. That is roughly 10 percent below the normal $299 price in Apple's home country, although we have been seeing some deals as low as $199 in recent weeks.

Siri support for an Indian localization of English was added to the HomePod with software version 13.3.1 back in late January.

(Thanks, Anmol and Karamjot!)

This must be like an astonishing luxury in that country. Wonder why Apple won’t release it in other countries where the populace is more likely to be able to afford a HomePod?
Not really. The Pro versions of the iphones regularly retail for around 6 times as much and it’s not stopping people from buying those.

Why did they take so long?
Lack of IT support in the country, I guess. Oh wait.

I don’t get all the Siri sucks and hate over HomePod.
It’s a wonderful device.
It sounds better than most.
In the USA it’s dropped to around $200 if you look.
India will be getting the HomePod after many software updates. And a much more stable system then from when it launched.
Enjoy India!
