    Even though it’s available in my language it isn’t in my “dialect” as I speak Portuguese from Portugal not from Brazil. It’s a hassle to have it set to Brazilian Portuguese because there are differences in vocabulary as well as accent. Moreover if I ask Siri for the news she will suggest me Brazilian stories which of course I am not interested in for the most part. She also has trouble understanding artist, song and movie titles in English. So I decided to set it to US English... However this is not satisfying at all. I wonder how all of you in a similar situation deal with this? I am so fed up with it that I am contemplating not using stupid Siri at all.

    I've been fed up with Siri for a long time. In most other languages, apart from English, it is pretty much unusable. Even in English, Siri is pretty much useless to me. I permanently turned it off.

    Not quite what you’re asking but I’m English and have Siri set to Australian just because it’s a hot accent
