Listen for traffic

Turns on the Sound Recognition feature new to iOS 14 for Car Horns and Sirens.

Use this shortcut inside Automations for your outdoor walks or workouts – your phone can help as a layer to potentially notify you if there’s an emergency vehicle coming.

This can be especially useful for anyone with regular AirPods – for AirPods Pro users, use Set Noise Control to turn on Transparency instead/in addition to listening for sirens.
