Siri is wonderful, has always been. But with Apple coming up with the upgrades, the functioning and the support from Siri gets better for everyone, especially for those who didn’t want to still keep trying with the American or British accent of English, and wanted their own local language to be recognized by the personal assistant.
The Siri app supports quite a few languages, and the user can choose to have one of them based on the accent in their location, and one can learn below how to change the language of Siri in the iOS 7 (in the guide below, it’s the iOS 7 Beta 2).

The language can be changed to one of the several available, and let’s check what are the languages which Siri can recognize and respond to.

Now, let’s see how you can change the language and select one of these. Go to Settings in your iOS device (This tip would work across several iOS versions, although we are explaining with the pictures from iOS 7), and then go to General.
Under the General settings, you would see the option Siri just below Software update. You need to open that to find the various Siri options.
In the Siri settings, just below the Siri toggle button, there’s an option of “Language” and based on your device purchase location, the default language would be shown. Open that to select from the various languages.
As shown in the picture below, you can select one from the several languages and these are mainly helpful for Siri to understand your accent in an easier way. Thus, you see the same language for different places where the accent could be different.
