Make Siri Announce Incoming Calls On iPhone
The feature to get Siri to speak the Callers Name on iPhone is an accessibility feature. As you can imagine, this feature can be helpful when you are away from your iPhone, have your iPhone in your pocket or simply like the idea of Siri announcing incoming Calls on your iPhone.
Extending this further, having Siri announce incoming Calls on your iPhone can be quite useful while you are running, biking, or trying to workup some sweat on a treadmill.
Let us now take a look at how to get Siri to announce incoming Calls on your iPhone.
1. From the Home Screen of your iPhone, tap on the Settings app.
2. On the Settings screen, tap on Phone.
3. On the next screen, tap on Announce Calls option.
4. On the Announce Calls screen, choose whatever works best for you: Always, Headphones & Car or Headphones Only (See image below)
As you can see from the above image, it is easy to switch from “Always” to “Headphones & Car”, which ensures that Siri will announce incoming Calls only when you are in the Car and also when you are wearing headphones and listening to Music or Audiobooks.
At any time you can stop Siri from Announcing Calls on your iPhone by tapping on the Never option (See image below)
After setting up your iPhone to let Siri Announce incoming Calls, the ringtone on your iPhone will still play, but Siri will talk over it, letting you know the Name of the person who is Calling you.
If the Caller happens to be in your Contact List, Siri will announce the Caller’s Name. In case the Caller is not in your Contact List, Siri will announce that you have received a Call from an Unknown Caller.
