AirPods will receive the new features with an update

One of the new functions for the AirPods Pro has been named Siri Interactions or hands-free interactions. This is a novelty for the 2nd generation of AirPods Pro that allows the user Interact with Siri without saying anything with your voice. That is, we can answer a call by answering yes or no with our heads. This way, we will avoid having to speak in case we cannot do so and we will be able to interact with Siri to take a call, choose to call someone or other interactions that require our response.
