the Siri confirmation tone from the homepod minis: insufficient without something else

Cupertino, July 28, 2023

I just told Siri on my Homepod mini to turn on a device. She did not turn it on. But she gave the confirmation dual-tone anyway.

And that's a problem. I want to know what was was actually commanded.

Siri should be able to answer questions like "what did you just do"? Like, each device running Siri should be able to answer that (to some degree of specificity that maintains privacy or whatever, like "I just answered a question for you" or "I just turned on the backyard sprinkler" or "I set a reminder") regarding whatever it did within the last minute, especially as regards a homekit command.

Anyway, I just wanted to shout this into the ether. It was the one thing I didn't like about the 16.4 homepod update: the confirmation tone is a lot more pleasant, but it removes the ability to tell what happened when Siri f's up.
