Listen: the two new voices of Siri in Hebrew (Wala! Technology)
iOS 16.4 update, which will arrive next month for iPhone devices, includes a significant upgrade to Siri (Apple's voice assistant) in the Hebrew language -
according to a test of the Walla system!
Technology in the beta version
, which was released last week to developers.
The voice that accompanied us from the launch of Siri in Israel in 2016 is now replaced by 2 new voices that are much more human than before.
In addition to the female voice, it is now possible to define Siri in Hebrew also as a man.
The update to Siri comes to us only about two months after it was added to us in Israel also in the update of the latest version of Apple TV, after many years in which it operated only in the company's mobile products, and about three months after the launch of Apple's maps in Israel.
A major question that arises now is whether we will soon also have Hebrew support for the HomePod, Apple's smart speaker, and its official sale in Israel.
In any case, there is no doubt that Israel is on Apple's list of tasks.

Siri was founded in December 2007 by Doug Kitlos and Adam Chair.
On October 13, 2008, the company announced the raising of financing in the amount of 8,500,000 dollars.
On April 28, 2010 it was acquired by Apple and on October 4, 2011 it was integrated into the operating system of the iPhone 4S.
Hebrew support, as mentioned, came later - in 2016, and before the launch of iOS 6, the functionality of Siri outside the United States was quite limited.
