Shortcut Information

This shortcut is designed for times when you don’t want your device alerting you to sounds it can recognize, but you don’t want to disable the feature entirely in settings.

(Apple uses the language Pause instead of Stop, since that would imply turning it off entirely, not just pausing it for now until you want to use it next.)

Turning Sound Recognition “on” also requires disabling Hey Siri, however I find it useful enough and use Siri on my Apple Watch or HomePod, so I’m rarely in a situation where Hey Siri would even work on my phone.
