Mickey and Minnie Mouse Can Speak Out Time On Apple Watch
Last updated on September 23rd, 2016 at 09:36 pmPosted in TILs by Vlad on July 29, 2016
Upgrade: If Minnie or Mickey won’t speak out the time when you tap the Apple Watch screen, make sure that the Silent mode isn’t active on your wearable!
The color palette is much more wider for Minnie though. You can change her dress and hat in various shades to match your Watch’s wrist band. The dots on the dress remain white for all combinations, but the rest can change from the traditional Red to Classic, Orange, Apricot, Light Orange, Yellow, Green, Mint, Turquoise, Light Blue, Blue, Royal Blue, Lilac, Midnight Blue, Purple, Lavender, Light Pink, Pink, Vintage Rose, Walnut, Stone and Antique White. Additional complications are also available, but more important, you can now interact with Mickey and Minnie!
Mickey or Minnie Mouse Watch Face Time Speak Out Feature
A nice little trick that helps you check the time without looking at the Watch has been introduced starting with watchOS 3. If you tap the screen of your wearable while the display is On, Mickey or Minnie, depending on your Watch Face selection, will speak out the current time along with a giggle or a greeting like “Good mornig!”, or “Good afternoon” depending on the time of day. You will immediately recognize the cartoon heroes’ characteristic voice!
Fact: That’s a nice feature for everyone, especially for the visually impaired ones!
How To Make Mickey or Minnie Talk
Tip: If you tap Mickey or Minnie and they don’t speak out the time, please check that the setting is active. Press the Digital Crown to open the Home Screen app layout. Tap Settings and browse for Sounds & Haptics. Now, scroll all the way down until you reach the Tap to Speak Time label. Make sure that the knob is switched ON.
Fact: If you just inserted your Apple Watch in water, the Tap to Speak Time feature might not sound properly until the speaker dries out completely.
I don`t even have the Tap to speak tipe option, how can i find it/switch it on, on watch3? Can somebody help me please?
I just choose Minnie Mouse and the next morning after it had been on the charger I accidentally touched the screen and it spoke the time.
If that doesn’t work go into the watch app on your phone go in to the watch face icon and check your settings at the bottom of the choices it says tap for sound. This is in the face choices not in your Apple Watch.
I have the apple watch 4 and noticed that sometimes Mickey/Minnie will giggle after they give the time and sometimes they won’t. Is there a trick or secret to get them to giggle, or is it programmed to only happen randomly?
Tap Minnie’s nose!!!
This is great
Yeah, kids are delighted!
Should make more time for folks to reply. I have an older iPad & and iphone6. For some reason it’s terribly lagging. I live in a large apartment building in Plymouth Massachusetts and wondered if there was some strain on the server. It seems to run very slowly and in my apartment at times When I’m texting it lags. (I’m a retired Computer Scientist. Just something to consider.
