One of my friends who bought new Apple Watch Series 3 a few days back told me that Siri doesn't speak on the Watch. With the help of search, I found that it's not an unusual issue and can fix with ease.
By default, Siri speaks the same language you have selected on your paired iPhone. If the personal assistant fails to respond to your queries, you need to download the voice for it. Here is how to fix it.
Siri Not Speaking on Your Apple Watch? Tips to Fix It
How to Download Siri Voice on Apple Watch
As mentioned above, your Apple Watch needs to download the voice, if the Siri doesn't speak.
The download process starts when Apple Watch is charging and connected to Wi-Fi. It would be better to charge your Apple Watch overnight as it would provide the smartwatch more time.
Step #1. To charge your smartwatch, plug the Apple Magnetic Charging Cable, Apple Watch Magnetic charging case or the Magnetic Charging Dock into its USB power adapter.
Step #2. Then, plug the adapter into a power outlet.
Now, you need to position the back of the smartwatch on the charger.
Now, let it charge securely.
How to Check the Download Status of Siri's Voice on Apple Watch
If you are not sure whether Siri voice has been successfully downloaded on the Watch or not, follow these quick steps to check it out.
Step #1. Open Settings app on your Apple Watch.
Step #2. Tap on General.
Step #3. Next, you have to tap on Siri. Then, scroll to Siri Voice.
Just in case the voice needs to download, you should see a message: “Siri will speak with the same voice selected on your iPhone. Waiting to download. Download will occur when your watch is charging.”
Let the voice download. Once done, try using Siri again. It should work perfectly.
