iOS 14 Updates Siri With Subtle Design That Doesn't Take Up Entire Screen

By expanding translation support, can I expect English to English will be better?

Am I correct that with this change, I can’t see exactly what Siri thinks I’m saying? At least in my non-English language Siri is quite poor, so I prefer the visual confirmation when I use Siri.

I like audio messaging, because when I receive one it reminds me to block that contact :-)

This isn’t so much as feature as a return to the superior design that Siri started with, which was that it slid up from the bottom of the screen and kept 90% of the screen legible so you could reference information there. Lord knows why they ditched it, but it was right around the time they fired Scott.
