At long last, Siri is coming to OS X.
The current word has it that Apple is looking to include Siri into OS X 10.12 this fall.
The feature is almost ready to go, and will be announced at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference as part of OS X 10.12 in June. The next version of the Mac operating system is likely to get a public release this fall.
It’s thought that Siri will behave sort of like Spotlight and be represented as an icon that will sit in your menu bar until you need to use it. Click it, and a transparent overlay will pop up in the top right of your screen with the same colorful waves you see on your iPhone screen, which indicates that Siri can hear you speaking. If your Mac is plugged in, you’ll be able to say “Hey, Siri” and get a response without clicking.
Apple has yet to explain the exact timeline or why the feature took so long to be incorporated into OS X.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
