So anything I ask Siri just comes up as a text no audible voice? I see no setting for this?
The watch is a gateway to siri and supposed to be discreet, hence Siri on the watch doesn't talk back to you.
Thank you I hope they change that as the watch does have a speaker.
I have had my watch silenced since I set it up, so I don't mind Siri being mute. I love the tactic feedback, and don't need anything making noises all day at work.
And then watch your battery life disappear quicker than water on the sun....
So if Siri goes audible 2 or 3 times a day it's going to kill the battery? So then what does a 5 minute phone call do?
Audible Siri is much more complicated than you think.
Why is that Mr. Rollyeyes?
Well it's much more complex than relaying audio from an iPhone. Siri appears to run locally on the watch, if you had audible Siri, it will have to do the audio locally on the watch too. This is nothing like just making a phone call. It's more system intensive. Use some common sense.
I would have thought it would be great to have feedback for certain things at the users request as an accessibility feature.
Actually it's not as complicated as you think, turn on voice over in the iphone watch app, move the speed slider down to about 1/4
On watch ask siri a question, and she's back
A little crazy though, it reads everything, but the proof shows it can and will be done.
And my battery isn't getting crushed.
I did this already but like you said it reads EVERYTHING and that gets annoying when every time you lift your arm it reads the time. But it's good to know it can be done.
Watch out, we've got an engineer here
I've actually recently disables Siri's voice on my iPhone. I usually find that I don't need/want the audible feedback, especially in public, which "watch siri" is more subject to do
My frustration is not that she doesn't talk, but that texting/iMessages require me to touch my phone no matter what.
I can say "Hey Siri, text Bill: I'm on my way".
Siri will dictated the message perfectly, but I have to click Send rather than say "Send" like I would on my phone. That's really the only thing (and it's minor) that's aggravated me so far.
If it's like my voice I'd in car sometimes it takes 2 or 3 times before it gets the name correct. Nothing like sending the message to the wrong person.
say "Hey Siri, send message"
She will send the message.
Need Siri with Voice In the Car
I really hope they add the ability to turn back on Siri's voice without having to use Voiceover. In the car, Siri's voice is really helpful. Hopefully they will add it to settings in the next software update. If voiceover can read it, it's technically feasible. They just need to turn it on.
Siri could then read your messages and notifications while you drive. Plus it would finally be like Kitt on Michael Knights wrist in Knight Rider
"Hey Siri, why are you mute?"
"I'm on a silent retreat."
Does that answer your question?
You better be sick dead or mute Si-Si!!!!!
Haha yes Siri is mute on Apple Watch.
Siri beeping or talking
I too wish Siri gave an audible response like on the iPhone. First, I wish it would be so I know it hears me so I don't have to stare at the watch. Also wish I could use a keyword that would invoke a spoken response like, "Hey Siri, tell me what the temperature is."
