Apple's HomePod was launched not too long ago, but its initial launch was limited to a handful of markets which was an interesting choice given that Apple typically releases its products worldwide usually at the same time.

This is according to a support document (via 9to5Mac) spotted on Apple's website in which it listed the HomePod's available audio sources. Based on the list, it seems that Japanese, French, and German was part of that list, suggesting that the HomePod could be close to launching in those countries.
