Change Siri's volume on your Mac

When Siri is speaking, click the Volume control  in the menu bar, then drag the slider to adjust the volume. You can also use the volume keys on your keyboard.

If you're using headphones, adjust the volume from your Mac. 

Change Siri's volume on your HomePod

You can ask Siri to speak louder, quieter, or at a specific volume. Say "Hey Siri," then say something like:

  • "Speak louder."
  • "Always speak quieter."
  • "Set your volume to sixty percent."

HomePod automatically adjusts Siri's response volume based on the level of noise in the room, your distance from HomePod, and how loudly you're speaking to Siri. You can turn automatic volume on or off by saying, "Hey Siri, turn on automatic Siri volume," or "Hey Siri, turn off automatic Siri volume."
