Apple users can now ask Siri about animal noises
Apple has been offering Siri, its own voice assistant, for years. As CNBC recently announced, Siri can now imitate animal noises. Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa has been able to do this for a long time, now this function has also found its way into Siri.
Apple users can still ask Siri questions as they were before. However, the iPhone user can now ask Siri about certain noises. For example, what sounds a bird, a lion or a dog makes. Siri will mimic these noises in response.
Siri can also inquire about instrument tones and other noises
But the innovation does not only contain animal noises, from now on Siri also plays instruments such as a piano or the harp. But that’s not all. When asked about the sound of a fire engine, Siri can now also score with playing a fire engine siren.
These are the requirements for the new Siri function
In order to use the new Siri function, Apple users must iOS 14.3 installed. In addition, there is initially a local limitation – the new function will initially only be available in the USA – but not yet in Germany.
