As posted on Siri will pretend to be the Batcomputer if you say this word
Siri got a Lego Batman-themed update.
Apple’s digital assistant will surprise you with references to The Lego Batman Movie if you pretend she is the Batcomputer.
The gimmick works if you say “Hey ‘Puter” or “Hey Computer” (gravely Will Arnett voice not required). When you do, Siri will respond with a handful of Batman-appropriate responses like, “How can I help you, Lego Batman” and “Welcome home, sir. FYI, Robin is trying on costumes in the Batcave again. He’s doing some pirouettes in Batryshnikov.”
Here’s a look at some of the responses we got when we tried it out:
(Note that Siri only works hands-free when you say, “hey, Siri,” so you’ll have to hold down the home button or tap the microphone after you’ve activated Siri.)
This isn’t the first time Siri has gotten a timely pop culture-inspired update. Apple’s assistant is a known fan of Game of Thrones, Back to the Future, Pokémon Go, and a whole bunch of other robot-themed sci-fi movies.
While the Lego Batman update may not be Siri’s most memorable pop culture update (or even her best troll) it should be a fun surprise to fans of the movies.
And whatever you do, just don’t ask Siri to be your Valentine.
