    Hey everyone -

    Does anyone know if Sierra will support the "hey siri" command to get Siri's attention? I noticed on the WWDC video that they never said anything about this. (So I am thinking no?)

    Also, if it does support "hey siri", how does it work if you have other apple devices in the room? Say, for instance, you have your iMac, iPhone, watch, iPad, and Macbook in the room. Which one will respond? Or all of them?

    No mention of it in the keynote, and I don't see anything in the settings. Maybe in a subsequent update. As someone who has an iPhone and iPad with the capability, I can tell you it is very annoying. It will activate any device that can hear it. So you basically have to pick what you want your "Hey Siri" device to be and stick with it, otherwise you end up with timers, etc set on 2-3 devices at the same time.

    Personally, if it worked on the Mac I'd just have an even harder time deciding which device to keep it active on.
