Here's one more thing that Siri can do: Beatbox

Siri has a hidden talent — beatboxing.

Ask Apple's voice-powered personal assistant to beatbox and she'll reply: "Here's one I've been practicing" before repeating the phrase 'boots and cats' over and over again.

The phrase is a common vocalization for beatboxing beginners to create a simple beat.

Siri's newest talent garnered quite a bit of attention on social media this week, though it has been part of the personal assistant's programming for some time.

YouTube videos from November of last year show Siri's beatboxing talent.

Impressed with Siri's beatboxing? Here are a few other things the personal assistant can do:

  • Siri can roll a dice, flip a coin or become your personal magic 8 ball.
  • "Star Wars" fan? Say: "Luke, I am your father."
  • Ask: Why are firetrucks red?
  • Ask: What is zero divided by zero?
  • Siri can sing, well...sort of.
  • Say: Supercalifragilisticespialidocious
  • Ask her about Hal 9000
  • Siri responds to tongue twisters
