  • Control with the "Ringtone" switch: When the sound is switched off, Siri's responses are also muted. You will still hear a beep when using Siri and will receive voice feedback when you use "Hey Siri" or when your device is connected to a Bluetooth device, headphones, or CarPlay.
  • Hands-free only: You will only hear a beep and a spoken answer from Siri when you use "Hey Siri" or when your device is connected to a Bluetooth device, headphones or CarPlay.

On the Mac

If you have a Mac with macOS Sierra or later, choose the Apple menu ()> System Preferences, then click Siri. There you can choose from the options for the following settings:

  • Language: Change the language Siri uses to answer instructions.
  • Siri voice: Change the gender or dialect of Siri. *
  • Narrator: Turn this on to get spoken responses from Siri. If this feature is disabled, Siri's answers will not be spoken, but will be displayed in the Siri window.

On the Apple Watch

Siri runs on your Apple Watch in the same language and voice that is set up on your iPhone. On Apple Watch Series 3 or later models, Siri can speak answers. On your Apple Watch, go to Settings> General> Siri. Under "Voice Feedback", choose from one of the following options:

  • Always on: Siri always speaks answers, even when the Apple Watch is in silent mode.
  • Control with silent mode: If the Apple Watch is in silent mode, Siri's responses will also remain silent.
  • Headphones only: Siri only speaks responses out loud when your Apple Watch is connected to Bluetooth headphones.

If you're using an older model of Apple Watch, Siri will display responses on-screen in the form of text or pictures. Learn more about Siri on Apple Watch.
