Russian-speaking iPhone users can soon enjoy a multi-lingual version of Siri, Apple’s voice-activated personal assistant. Launching next month, Apple’s newest iOS 8.3 software will support Siri in Russian, Thai, Swedish, Turkish, Danish, Portuguese and Dutch, tech website 9to5mac reports.

Siri answers questions and performs actions delegated to it by the user, who speaks into the phone with questions or requests, like setting reminders or finding directions. The new language options will be accessible via its settings panel on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
