SiriLeaks: Apple’s personal assistant admits she can now speak Japanese

“Siri is many things, but it seems she is not a good secret keeper,” Seth Weintraub reports for 9to5Mac.

“A few tipsters reached out and told us that Siri now speaks Japanese,” Weintraub reports. “Rumors earlier this month said Apple’s AI speech recognition interface would gain Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and possibly Russian. It now appears that Japanese is about to be announced… that is if Siri is being honest with us.”

  1. Do we have to reset the device to be in each specific language environment? Or can Siri switch between languages within one environment? Can Siri translate? If so, this will be great.

  2. It would be nice if she could automatically recognize a language and reply in same.

    I’m also anxious for the addition of Japan to Siri’s list countries she works in. I’d like to use her for weather and directions.
