In response to a report from Apple seeking to change Siri’s set off phrase from “Hey Siri,” to “Siri” bloombergMark Gurman. This means that you have to say “Siri” followed by a command to activate the good assistant.
As made famous by Gurman, Apple has been in this work for the past several months and is projected to start in the next 12 months or 2024. But Apple must put in “a significant amount of AI training and underlying engineering work.” To perform the task correctly, because the good assistant seeks to understand a wake-up phrase in many pronunciations and dialects. The current, two-word set of phrases, “Hey Siri,” will increase the chances of Siri picking up on it.
Switching to a single wake phrase could help Siri keep up with Amazon’s Alexa, as it already lets customers activate the good assistant using “Alexa” instead of “Hey Alexa.” This will put Siri one step ahead of Google Assistant, which requires the phrases “Ok Google” or “Hey Google” to activate (though you don’t need to repeat the wake phrase when saying back-to-back instructions). . Even Microsoft transitioned from “Hey Cortana” to “Cortana” on good audio systems in the past 12 months before shutting down the voice assistant.
