Siri Can Beatbox (Very Badly)

Illustration for article titled Siri Can Beatbox (Very Badly)

You can rely on Siri for searching the internet, sending a text message and, err, laying down some sick beats. Turns out that Siri can beatbox—just don’t expect too much from it.


Ask Siri to beatbox for you, and it will spit out a loop that it’s “been practicing.” You’ll hear it repeat the phrase “boots and cats” over and over and over, which is, apparently, a popular starting point for wannabe beatboxers. You can see it in action below, or just try it out for yourself.

Siri can also beatbox (rather better) in Japanese.
