Change Siri Language and Voice on HomePod from Mac

You can customize your HomePod to respond to your “Hey Siri” commands. So, what if you want to use a different language? Many people speak more than one dialect these days. For instance, say you speak both English and Spanish and you’re having a group of friends over who all speak Spanish? Change the HomePod so everyone can talk to Siri.

Or, what if you’re just learning a second or third language? Giving commands in that other dialect to Siri for HomePod could be a great way to practice.

Along with being able to change the language on your HomePod, you can also change Siri’s voice. You might prefer a male voice with a British accent or a female voice with an Australian accent. This is easy to change as well.

This tutorial shows you how to change both the language and Siri’s voice on HomePod.
