Siri functionality is being added to Denon's smart speakers with minimal fanfare

Cupertino, May 13, 2024

A while ago, Ecobee added the ability to have Siri on a range of their smart thermostats, allowing you to activate Siri directly. Now Denon has taken the same approach for some of their smart speakers, making Siri accessible.

Denon Home 350 All this is achieved via an update within the HEOS app used for Denon smart speakers. Full instructions can be found HERE. To get Siri to work at all, you'll first need a speaker that supports Siri, such as the HomePod or HomePod Mini, which is also the case with the aforementioned Ecobee integration.

This is because Siri is not actually built into these devices, but is only passed on to the speakers. The smart speaker range has always been able to summon a voice assistant, with Alexa built into their speakers, but now with Siri, people who prefer the latter will now be able to access Apple's voice assistant in more locations, and not just where their nearest HomePod is.

Denon Home 150 Denon Home 250 Denon Home 350 Denon Home Soundbar 550 The models compatible with this update are the Denon Home series models 150, 250, 350 and Soundbar 550. All these speakers already have AirPlay 2 integration, but to add After the Siri update, you will initially have to remove them from your smart home and then add them again. If you previously used Alexa, the Siri update will disable Amazon's voice assistant as only one can be active.
