The new feature uses Siri to automatically read your incoming messages when you listen to music or a podcast with a number of compatible Apple wireless earphones or headphones.
Below you will find what you need and how to enable the function and how often Siri reads your messages.
There are some requirements
For Siri to read your messages, iOS 13.2 or iPadOS 13.2 must be installed on your iPhone or iPad. And of course you also need one of the following sets of AirPods or Beats headphones:
Another important note: your iPhone or iPad must be locked with the screen turned off so that Siri can read you messages.
Turn it on, adjust the settings
After I updated my iPhone to iOS 13.2, the function was already turned on, but it doesn't hurt to check if that is the case and adjust the settings if you want. Open the Settings app and go to Notifications > Announce notifications with Siri .
At the top of the screen is a switch to enable the function and a section where supported apps are shown. It is currently limited to Messages. There is also an option to have Siri send a message after you have dictated it, without first reading it back to confirm that it is what you want to send. I abandon this because it is known that Siri completely misunderstands me, especially in noisy environments.
If you tap Messages you can select which messages Siri will read messages. Current options include messages from Favorites, Recent, Contacts, or Everyone.
Replying to a message
When you receive a new message and Siri reads it to you as soon as she stops talking, you can say "Reply" followed by what you want the message to say. When you finish talking, Siri will read the message back and confirm that you want to send it, or just send the message, depending on your settings.
It took me a few attempts to figure out exactly when I & # 39; Answer & # 39; had to say and how the whole function worked, but now that I have mastered it, I can see myself using it quite a bit.
Announcing messages with Siri is only. Between the improved p and the ability to share there is a lot of fun.
