Siri not Talking Back Issue: Siri is your favorite digital assistant, for some time now. But suddenly Siri isn’t speaking back. You can also listen to other tabs and sounds on your device, but long for Siri’s voice. Here are some things you can check if Siri isn’t talking to you any longer.

Check your Siri feedback on iOS

The very first thing you should check if Siri isn’t speaking to you anymore is the Voice Feedback setting.

Step 1:

Firstly, Open Settings and click Siri & Search.

Step 2:

Choose Voice Feedback. You can also view what it’s currently set to before you even click it.

Step 3:

Select Always On. This ensures that Siri will give you voice feedback also if your ring switch is turned off.

Check your Siri feedback on Mac

If the trouble you’re having with Siri is on your Mac, here’s how to check the feedback setting there.

Step 1:

Firstly, Open System Preferences with the icon in your Dock or Apple icon > System Preferences.

Step 2:

Select Siri.

Step 3:

Remember the radio button for Voice Feedback is On.

Adjust your Siri Volume

Certainly, it’s something quite a simple the volume is set too low. However, if Siri’s volume can be adjusted separately from your current iPhone volume setting.

Access Siri and turn up the volume. You can also view when you close Siri and adjust the volume on your Home screen. Also, move back and check the volume on the Siri screen, they are set differently.


Here’s all about “Siri not Talking Back Issue”. Hopefully one of these above-mentiuoned fixes will have Siri speaking to you again. And in case if not, you can always try to restart your device.
