I love it.

It does remind me though, here's hoping for some big Siri upgrades at WWDC. It's funny how natural she sounded just a few years ago, but standards have been raised. I was using an Echo at work and Alexa's voice makes Siri sound like a bit of a robot in comparison.
I might be alone on this, but I kinda like the robot sounding twist. Makes it a bit less creepy than having a "too real sounding" voice
