The voice assistant’s capability to announce alerts through the phone’s speaker when they are received is one of the new capabilities added to the Apple iPhone with iOS 16.
On the most recent Apple iPhone running iOS 16, we’ll walk you through each step of turning on the feature that makes Siri announce notifications over the speaker.
How to make Siri announce notifications on an Apple iPhone
Step 1: Open the Settings application on your Apple iPhone.
Step 2: When the app opens, tap on the “Accessibility” option from the list.
Step 3: In the Accessibility settings, scroll down to the General section and select the “Siri” option.
Step 4: On the page that loads, go to the Spoken Responses section and toggle the switch on for the “Announce Notifications on Speaker” option.
I’m done now. After you have completed the above-described step-by-step instructions on your Apple iPhone, Siri will begin to announce any new notifications that have been received. You’ll notice a brand-new Announce Alerts menu where you may choose which applications’ notifications on your smartphone should be announced by Siri.
