HomePod gains News support in Canada, France, and Germany ahead of launch

Apple’s HomePod now has the ability to read the news in Canada, France, and Germany, MacRumors reports, three days ahead of its scheduled launch in those countries. Although it wasn’t entirely clear whether news support for those countries would be included in the HomePod when it debuted next week — Apple’s iOS News app remains limited to the U.S., U.K., and Australia, for example — it turns out that Apple has been able to bake in support for a variety of news sources in each country, including CBC, Global TV, CTV, and CNN in Canada, and Deutschlandfunk, Tagesschau in 100 Sekunden, ZDF heute Express, and Weltnewscheck in Germany.
