HomePod Mini Likely to Launch in These Four Countries Next

Apple is likely to launch the HomePod mini in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden in the foreseeable future based on Siri language support.

In recent software updates, the HomePod and HomePod mini gained support for Siri in Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish. Danish is still not supported on HomePods, but a report earlier this year indicated that the language was being tested.

First released in October 2020, the HomePod mini is currently available in 20 countries and territories, including the United States, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

Apple made the HomePod mini available in yellow, orange, and blue last year, alongside space gray and white. In August, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman claimed that Apple was considering launching an updated version of the $99 smart speaker in the future, but he did not provide a specific timeframe or details about potential new features.

Apple discontinued the full-size HomePod in March 2021.

Apple needs to bring back the full-size HomePod in March 2023. Preferably in Mid-Night color.

The sound quality is really sub-bar. I know the small form-factor is cool, but please do better Apple.

It's ridiculous that they have to wait for Siri support to start selling a speaker in a given country.

If only they offered a "dumb" speaker that I could just AirPlay to...that's all I use it for anyway.
In addition, I would think that the majority of Apple product owners in the Nordics speak decent English.

How many alexa-enabled devices can you fill your home with for the the cost of one home pod device?

Spoiler alert: Many
But then you don’t get to enjoy the mindboggling stupidity of Siri.

Only yesterday I said “hey Siri, goodnight” to activate the corresponding scene and she replied she didn’t know what to do with my request. And tonight it works fine.

How does it compare to the sound from a MacBook Air M1 2020? My home office is small so it may be OK for music.
It sounds better than the MacBook speakers - more bass, richer sound. But I would recommend getting a stereo pair. On their own the HomePod minis sound ok, but in stereo they sound quite good to my ear.
