Apple claims that it has improved Siri with 20 times more facts for answers overall with iOS 14, and now the company’s virtual assistant is about to learn a few more tricks. You will soon be able to ask Siri to play sounds from animals, vehicles, instruments, and more.
As reported CNBC, Apple is adding several new sounds to Siri for whenever users wonder how something sounds. The company said there are hundreds of sound options that Siri can play on the iPhone, iPad and even HomePod.
Once this feature is up and running, you will be able to ask Siri to hear a duck, a humpback whale or even a train. Siri will play the requested sound and will also show some interesting facts about that animal, vehicle or instrument from Wikipedia.
Here are some of the questions users can ask Siri with this update:
- “Hey Siri, what does a humpback whale sound like?”
- “Hey Siri, what does a toy poodle sound like?”
- “Hey Siri, what does a harp sound like?”
- “Hey Siri, what do fire trucks sound like?”
While some users have already been able to ask Siri to play these sounds, several users have reported on social media that they have not yet been able to successfully request the new sounds. Apple says this requires iOS 14.3 to work, but even with the latest version of the operating system installed, I couldn’t test it with my devices.
The new sounds are supposed to still be launched to users and they should be available to everyone in the coming days.
Could you ask Siri to play these new sounds? Let us know in the comments below.
