According to the story in 9to5Mac, a few hours ago Apple uploaded a strange document to its website where the available languages of the HomePod were displayed. Among them, it would appear as it could not be less English, but also French, German and Japanese .
Three new languages suggesting the imminent launch of the Apple Smart Speaker in more countries . So far, the HomePod is only available in the US, UK and Australia.
Apple itself had previously announced that the HomePod would be launched in France and Germany during the spring, so the only new feature is the incorporation of Japan and that it could be produced in a matter of days .
This document appeared in the Downloads section, but is no longer on the Apple website, so it is probably a error from the page managers . Something very strange.
In any case, if this theory is confirmed, the arrival of the HomePod in more countries would be good news, although in Spain and Latin America we still have no news about its launch in our borders .
The HomePod has begun its journey in the field of intelligent speakers with lights and shadows. On the one hand, it is surprising because of its sound quality, but on the other hand, Siri’s limitations, incompatibilities or its price – which seems somewhat high compared to the competition – are some serious handicaps that make us think that it may not be selling as well as Apple expected .
During the last periodic appointment to review Apple’s figures, Tim Cook went over the HomePod quite a bit, which makes us think that in Cupertino are not very satisfied with the results obtained . So much so, that there are rumors of the launch of a low cost HomePod this year.
