    I'm in the UK and the option to select voices is missing for me too. I think it's a US only option, which is a shame.

    Sadly it's not no. It's definitely a first world problem though.

    wish other countries would get itunes radio too...

    ----------

    thing is though i could understand itunes radio being limited to specific regions but something like changing the gender of siris voice shouldnt be.

    I can change siri's gender in Canada :3

    But we're basically the US (although we still don't have iTunes radio :mad: )

    I can change it in French too.
    The option to change gender sometimes mysteriously disappears…
    Try to change Siri’s language (another then reselect the previous), to quit Settings app, to reboot (not necessarily in this order).
    It worked for me once.

    Siri's new voice only supports North American English (US and Canada), French, and German.

    There are plans to bring Siri's new voice to all supported languages of course. Mostly likely, however, it will not be till after iOS 7 is launched (probably iOS 7.1)

    It's a US specific feature right now.

    They plan to roll it out to every language, but don't except Dutch at launch.

    They probably won't have all the languages till iOS 8.

    I hope there will be more than two genders in the GM.

    I'm in New Zealand, although logged into my US account and can access both the "Siri Gender" and iTunes Radio settings - good to know that they are only restricted by where your account is and not geo-location.

    Male Siri sounds more advanced than female Siri.

    I thought now the GM is out, Apple would have given the UK a female Siri voice.

    Does anyone think this may happen on the 18th or there just isn't a female UK voice yet?

    Most likely the high-quality UK voice hasn't been developed yet, but it's most likely one of the languages with priority.

    You can change Siri language regardless of the region of your account.

    I hope so. Especially given the male Siri UK voice seems to have become worse with iOS 7.

    I expect iOS 7.0.1 when the iPads come out next month, by then, Apple should have more Siri voices. ...If not, then in a few months with a 7.1 release?

    iTunes Radio may come to other countries, but, I'm going to assume it's going to be tried out in the US for some months, maybe even a year first. They have to work deals with the recording labels in order to play their music, so, this will be different for each country/region.
