Siri has been spreading its wings over the last year. Apple introduced the voice-activated helper to its watch and TV to make life more hands-free for the users. But the virtual assistant steered clear of the desktop until now. As reported earlier this year, Siri is coming to the Mac.

The latest update, macOS Sierra, will bring Siri's new colorful disc-shaped avatar right next to the Finder on the dock at the bottom of the screen. The helper will help you locate files, search the web or even fire up your favorite playlist.
