Report: HomePod will work outside of U.S., U.K., and Australia — in English only

A report from MacRumors has confirmed that Apple’s new HomePod speaker will function in other countries outside of the U.S., U.K., and Australia, although users will be limited to using Siri in English only. Citing a leak by Guilherme Rambo from last August that outlined the HomePod set up procedures, MacRumors notes:

When users try to set up the HomePod outside of the those aforementioned countries, a dialogue box will appear that directs them to choose one of three English language options to proceed. We can confirm this setup process can be completed, and that the HomePod functions, in mostly any country from day one.

This suggests that users who are able to purchase a HomePod from the U.S., U.K., or Australia will be able to take it to another country like Canada, where it will work fine but be limited to English until Siri gains support for additional languages on the HomePod.
