With Siri now socializing on other smart speakers, Apple took to the stage at its October event to announce a new look for its HomePod Mini smart speaker. In addition to white and black (space gray), you will soon be able to pick up a HomePod Mini in yellow, orange, and blue.

Apple is catching up with the competition here. Google’s Nest Mini smart speakers have blue and orange options, and there’s also a blue Amazon’s Echo Dot, plus some fun animal-themed colors offered on the Echo Dot Kids edition.

The new speakers will have color-matched details throughout, including the tinted touch surface, the fabric mesh, volume icons, and that (non-removable) power cable. They will cost the same as the original Minis, $99, and will be available in November.

The Mini will work with the new Apple Music Voice subscription, which Apple also announced at the event. This is a cheaper tier of Apple’s music streaming service that you access only via the Siri voice assistant, although there will be a limited app option; it arrives later this year for $4.99 per month.
