If you want your iPhone to be more original and stand out from the rest, one of the things you can do to personalize it is to change the voice of Siri. We explain how to do it step by step.
In recent years, the use of virtual assistants has experienced significant growth. This has been possible, on the one hand, thanks to the boost from smart speakers, and on the other hand due to the popularization of Android Auto and CarPlay, among other factors.
Now that we use voice assistants more than ever, when it comes to customizing our terminal we cannot just stay on the graphical appearance. If you want your terminal to be truly original, you also have to configure other aspects, including the voice of your assistant.
In case you didn’t know, you have the possibility to change Siri’s voice on your iPhone. In this way, your assistant will sound different from how most Apple phones do, gaining personality compared to others.
Carrying out this adjustment will take little time and is very easy to do. We explain everything you have to do step by step to change the voice of Siri:
- First, enter the Settings and go to the Siri section and search.
- Under the heading Consult Siri you will find the Siri Voice option. Click to see the available options.
- Right now you can choose two options for Siri in Spanish. Voice 2 is the one that is selected by default, and it is the characteristic female voice that everyone recognizes as the voice of Apple’s virtual assistant. Voice 1 is a male voice and is much less common.
- To switch to the male Siri voice, tap Voice 1 and the package download will begin. It is recommended that you be connected to the WiFi so as not to consume data from your mobile rate.
- When the download is complete you can start using the new voice for Siri.
Until very recently, Siri only had two voices to choose from in all languages, but with the arrival of iOS 14.5 Apple added two new voices for Siri in American English, which currently has four voices. It is possible that those of Cupertino plan to do the same soon for other languages and perhaps soon we will have more options to choose from.
