It seems Apple has forgotten that Denmark is also a country in Scandinavia - we still don't have any Apple Stores and now also this ? WTF?
Even Danes have trouble understanding the language. Cant expect Siri to work well at all.

Using Siri on a Homepod in Norwegian is mostly a joke. There is no News app here, or any other way to get it to read headlines like our Google Assistants do. I can't trigger Spotify playlists on it - only stram from iPhone. And asking it "what are you playing" is pitiful, as it tries to read song and artist name - clearly English - in a deadpan Norwegian manner. Complete cringe.
The only real use we have of our homepod minis with siri is adding items to a shared shopping list. In English, which we've set them up as for now. Doesn't go very smooth with items that are Indian or Chinese.
Siri needs to be multi-lingual, and not one-language-at-a-time.
