More ways to use Siri on HomePod

Siri on HomePod is great at answering questions about the things you want to know and do in your home. Here’s what you can do.

• Cook with Siri

Need a little help in the kitchen? Siri can help you measure ingredients, set a timer, and even help you count calories. Say “Hey Siri,” then you can say things like:
– “How many cups are in a quart?”
– “Set a timer for 45 minutes.”
– “Pause the timer.”
– “How much time is left on the timer?”
– “How many calories are in an ounce of cheddar cheese?”

• Be on time

Need to wake up early to catch a flight? Or want to check the time in another city? Siri can help. Say “Hey Siri,” then say something like:
– “What time is it in Salzburg?”
– “When is daylight saving time?”
– “Wake me up tomorrow at 6:00 a.m.”
– “Change my 6:00 a.m alarm to 6:30 a.m.”
When the alarm goes off, you can say “Hey Siri, snooze” or “Hey Siri, stop.”

• Ask Siri to translate

You can ask Siri in English how to say something in Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, or Italian. Say “Hey Siri,” then you can ask things like:
– “How do you say ‘nice to meet you’ in Mandarin?”
– “How do you say ‘thank you’ in Italian?”
– “How do you say ‘Good Morning’ in German?”

• Get answers

From math to pop culture, Siri knows a little bit about everything. Say “Hey Siri,” then you can ask Siri things like:
– “Who sings this song?”
– “What’s a 15% tip on $85?”
– “How high is El Capitan?”
– “What movie won Best Picture last year?”

Of course, Siri can also play music from your library and help you discover new music on your HomePod. Siri can also help you catch up with your podcasts and find new ones.

To play music or podcasts on your HomePod, say “Hey Siri,” then tell Siri what you want to hear. HomePod automatically uses the same Apple ID that you’re signed into on the iOS device that you used to set it up. After you set it up, you don’t need your device to be present to use Siri to play music or podcasts.
