Ask Siri for information
You can use Siri on HomePod to get location and traffic information, get information about the weather, translate words and phrases, and more.
Get answers to general questions
“Hey Siri, who was the 13th president of the United States?”
“Hey Siri, what does a cello sound like?”
“Hey Siri, what’s the tallest mountain in Germany?”
“Hey Siri, what does ‘happenstance’ mean?”
“Hey Siri, how many calories are in a potato?”
With some questions, Siri will send the answer directly to your nearby iOS or iPadOS device. For example, say “Hey Siri, how do I cut a mango?” This is especially helpful when the answer is long or visual.
Get location and traffic information
“Hey Siri, where’s the nearest coffee shop?”
“Hey Siri, how long will it take me to drive to Milwaukee?”
“Hey Siri, what time does The Meatball Shop close?”
When you ask about a place on HomePod, that place appears as a Siri Suggestion in Maps on your iPhone or iPad. To quickly get directions, open Maps, then tap the location under Siri Suggestions.
Get weather information
“Hey Siri, what’s the weather going to be like today?”
“Hey Siri, when is sunrise in Paris?”
“Hey Siri, what will the weather be like in Yosemite this weekend?”
