Apple's artificial intelligence technology is becoming smarter than ever. Siri now knows how to beatbox and speak Hebrew.

While quite a few people have just discovered Siri's hidden talent, a few videos on YouTube show that Siri's party trick has been around for a while.

When users tell the AI technology to beatbox, she's going to reply "Here's one I've been practicing" before doing her thing. Siri uses a clever trick to beatbox: she says the phrase "boots and cats" again and again. Beatboxing tutorials say this phrase is helpful for those who are still starting to learn the skill. Siri's monotone delivery, though, makes the whole thing pretty hilarious.

Last year, Siri also created quite a buzz when people asked her what zero divided by zero is.

"Imagine that you have zero cookies and you split them evenly among zero friends," says Siri. "How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn't make sense. And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies, and you are sad that you have no friends."

Siri Learns Hebrew

It takes a lot to learn two very different skills at the same time, but for Siri, that's no problem at all. Israeli iOS users will soon rejoice as Apple will roll out an updated, enhanced Siri next month, bringing with it support for Hebrew.

In fact, Apple already pushed out a prerelease version of the beta software update for the succeeding version of its operating system, iOS 9.3. A local newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, initially uncovered that the update comes packed with support for this language.

At the moment, Siri is available in an array of languages across the globe, which include Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean and English.

However, it does not yet provide support for local searches.

In November last year, we featured a report saying that consumers are more satisfied with Apple's Siri than other digital assistants, such as Google Now and Microsoft's Cortana.

The study, which was carried out by Experts Exchange, said that Siri was more accurate and efficient in her answers than her archrivals.

"Our objective was to explore the various ways Siri outperformed the competition and to give consumers an expectation for their own virtual assistants' performances," Experts Exchange said.

Apple's digital assistant garnered a score of 82 percent. Meanwhile, Google Now notched 68 percent and Cortana got 60 percent.

Experts Exchange added that the survey results were unanimous, making Siri the top smart digital assistant for consumers.
