Alongside iPhone XR, Apple has today released HomePod in Mexico and Spain. With that, HomePod now officially supports Spanish, the first language outside of variations of English supported on the smart speaker. However, it looks like Apple isn’t going to stop there.

According to a report from Italian blog Saggiamente (via Google Translate), several Apple employees have confirmed that the company is internally testing support for Italian. The firm also notes that Apple may be planning to announce the feature at the upcoming Mac and iPad Pro event on October 30, however a release date remains unclear.

It sounds like Apple is rapidly trying to roll out HomePod in more countries as quick as they can. This makes sense as Siri is notoriously known for supporting a wide variety of languages on other devices such as iPhone and Apple TV. As for languages, it seems like language support is all done server side as HomePod has not received an update since the initial 12.0 release.

Do you own a HomePod? Or are you waiting for Apple to support it in your country? Let us know in the comments below!
