It appears that Siri has all but confirmed that Japanese support for the iOS digital assistant will be coming soon. If you ask Siri now what languages she speaks, you’ll get the reply “I can speak French, English, Japanese, and German… but I’m always learning.”. That said, Japanese isn’t an option yet under Siri’s languages setting. For full support, that may not happen until the next iOS update (5.1). As for additional languages, the FAQ section for Siri states that more will be arriving in 2012, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, and Spanish. So if you’re an iPhone 4S user who speaks one of these languages, hopefully it won’t be much longer before you can whisper sweet nothings to Siri in your native tongue.
