How to Adjust Siri Announce Message Volume

Share This:

Are you looking for a convenient way to stay on top of all your notifications? If so, Siri can help you out! With the Announce Messages with Siri feature, you can have your incoming notifications read aloud to you through your AirPods or other compatible headphones. This means that you won’t have to constantly look at your phone to check for new messages and alerts – it’s all done for you automatically.

To enable this feature, open Settings on your iPhone or iPad and scroll down to the Notifications section. Under the Siri section, toggle ON the Announce Notifications setting. This will make sure that when a notification comes in, it will be read out loud by Siri through your headphones.

There are several settings within the Announce Notification section that allow you to customize this experience even further. You can adjust the volume level used both when AirPods are connected and when they are not (the volume will be the same for both). Additionally, you can choose which types of notifications are read aloud by Siri – calls, messages, email and more.

Finally, if you want to take advantage of this feature without having to always keep headphones in, there is an option called “Headphones off” which allows Siri to still announce notifications even when no audio device is connected. However, note that this setting uses the ringer volume instead of a separate volume setting so be sure to adjust this accordingly if using this option!

With Announce Messages with Siri enabled, staying up-to-date with all your new notifications has nver been easier!

Additionally, if you have an iPhone X or later model, you can use the “Hey Siri” voice command to increase the volume while Siri is active.

Investigating the Cause of Quiet Text Alerts

The reason why your text alert is so quiet is likely because the sound option associated with it has been set to None. To fix this, you should go to the advanced sub menu and look for the Sound option. From there, select one of your ringtones / notifications and that will be the sound that plays when you receive a new message.

Why Are My AirPods Announcing So Quietly?

The AirPods announcements can be quiet due to a few possibe reasons. One reason could be that the volume on your iPhone or iPad is turned down too low. Another reason could be that the volume of the Tone Volume setting under Accessibility > AirPods is set too low. Finally, it could also be that the sound level of the AirPods Pro themselves is set too low. To increase the volume of your AirPod announcements, make sure that the sound level of your iPhone or iPad is turned up and that you adjust both the Tone Volume setting and sound level of your AirPods as needed.
