Apple’s “intelligent personal assistant,” Siri is coming to Mac later this year, according to reports.

According to 9to5Mac, Siri will be incorporated into the next major upgrade to Apple's Mac operating system, expected later this year.

Siri allows users to use their voice to send messages, make calls, set reminders and more.

The app is a popular feature of Apple's iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple TV.

Siri will be accessible by simply saying “Hey Siri” while the computer is plugged in. There will likely also be keyboard shortcuts to activate the service.

There will also be a new button on the menu bar, and when pressed, Siri will launch in the upper right corner of the screen.

Apple has been testing Siri for the Mac since 2012.
