If you own a HomePod, then you already know that it’s more than just a fancy speaker. You can use HomePod and Siri to set up timers while you cook, get the local weather, and catch up on your favorite sports teams.

So, if you need to translate a language, of course, Siri can help. Here’s how to use Siri to translate on your HomePod.

Ask Siri to translate for you

If you need to communicate in another language, just speak to Siri on your HomePod. You can use simply commands like those below.

  • “Hey Siri, how do you say ‘thank you’ in German?”
  • “Hey Siri, translate ‘hello’ to French?”
  • “Hey Siri, what’s the word for ‘good-bye’ in Spanish?”

Siri can translate many languages including Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, and French. You can check out the Siri: Translations website for a complete list.
