Hey, has anyone else noticed that in the Siri settings, if you change the accent it will now show "downloading" and at the bottom it shows the progress? Not sure if this is new to iOS 10 Beta 3, this is the 1st I have ever noticed it.

I have my Siri set to UK and was using the American accent. I then changed it to Australian, as I quite like the change. I had moved to American as the last beta had the Australian bug and that's when I saw the new text.

I believe this was there from the iOS 7 days and the introduction of the new voices

It was there in beta 2. It is a new feature for iOS 10 though, and a welcome one at that.

Before iOS 10, there was no visibility of how complete a Siri voice download was unless you used the speak selection trick to download the HQ voice.

I know changing the accent options have been around for a while, but we have never been able to see the status. We did have a notice saying that the high quality voice would be downloaded, there was never a display of this happening or how long it would take - till now.

It is a most welcome one!
