Listen for sirens

Activates sound recognition for sirens that allow your device to alert you when it hears sounds like fire trucks or an ambulance.

This shortcut is a good example of the specific types of sounds you can listen for with Sound Recognition on iOS – it’s as specific as “sirens” versus things like “car horns.”

Make sure to check out “Listen for traffic” for an example that combines both.
