On iOS 15, Siri comes with a new Notification Announcement feature that lets you read notifications when wearing AirPod headphones or connected Beats.
IOS 15 Siri feature
SIRI has been able to announce messages for some time now, but in IOS 15, the feature has been extended to all notifications. If enabled, Siri will automatically announce critical time alerts from apps where AirPods / Beats are connected.
You can also choose to have SMS notifications announcing each app if you want to hear notifications from certain time-sensitive apps.
Here’s how to get Siri to announce notifications on iOS 15.
- Launch the settings app.
- Tap Notifications.
- Under “Siri,” select Announce Notifications.
- Toggle the switch next to Notification Announcement in the ON green mode.
- To receive an SMS to announce all notifications from a specific application, simply select the application mentioned in the list under “Announce Notifications From” and toggle its Announce Notifications switch.
Note that if the notification supports actions, Siri will listen to your response after reading the notification, so you do not need to say “Hello Siri”or “Hey Siri” to follow it.
What can Siri do?
Siri can do a lot. She is very smart and sometimes funny too. If you want to get the giggle out of Siri rather than ask her to do something delicate, check out our guide to the best Siri eggs.
Besides, Siri can help you when you’re out and about, in a car if you have a compatible CarPlay car, with sports and entertainment details, calls and messages, order, tips and tricks and so on, to give you answers.
How does Siri work?
Siri is based on the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing, and has three components – a chat interface, human context awareness and service delegation
The chat feature is about how Siri understands you from the beginning. The general function of direct word and word recognition should be good for you to hear what you are saying but the clarity of meaning depends on statistics and machine learning, where the awareness of personal context comes into play.
There is a lot of work in Siri that can predict what you get depending on the keywords you use, as well as your general habits and language preferences. Designed to adapt to your preferences over time and customize the results.
Service delivery system is uncontrollable access to all built-in iPhones apps and their internal functionality. This achievement is the way Siri does what she does. Without access, Siri could be a great help for rubbing assistance.
Does Siri speak my language?
Siri can speak and understand English (Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, US), Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Japanese, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Norwegian, Cantonese, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian, Russian, Turkish, Thai and Portuguese.
How do I change Siri’s sex and the way she talks?
If you want to change Siri into male or female, you will need to go to Settings> Siri and Search in iOS or Apple Menu> System Preferences> Siri in MacOS Sierra or later. You can also change Siri settings on HomePod within the Home app and change the Apple Watch settings within the Watch app.
Siri Voice options for gender and language depend on the language you choose.
Within these Siri settings is where you can enable or disable the “Hey Siri” command, as well as view Siri Shortcuts, and decide if you want to enable Siri when your device is locked.
