    When I make a call via Hey Siri, isn't it supposed to automatically turn on the speakerphone. She even says so but doesn't do it.

    For example, when I say: Hey Siri, call Amy

    She says: Calling Amy with speakerphone

    But it doesn't turn on the speaker.

    Anyone else experiencing this?


    EDIT:

    Finally figured out the problem and I'm pretty sure it's a bug.

    It doesn't work with Wi-Fi Calling enabled. Works fine without it.

    Try a reboot or restore the phone from a Backup

    If you don't mind, can you check to see if you have "Call Audio Routing" set to "Automatic" or "Speaker"?

    It's in Settings --> General --> Accessibility (about half-way down).

    Damn. Guess I'll have to try a reset and restore.

    I don't have iTunes so I'll have to go to the store. Was hoping it wouldn't come to that.

    Why do you have to go to the store to reset/restore? You can reset from the menu and restore from iCloud, no?

    From what I understand, iCloud doesn't backup and restore everything.

    For some reason, it doesn't work with Wi-Fi Calling enabled. Works fine without it.
