Apple’s digital assistant Siri is expected to finally arrive on Macs later this year with the next OS X update, and now it appears that we already know what the new icons will be.

Screenshots of the upcoming Siri for Mac features were leaked online today, revealing the multi-colored wave icon that will soon rest on your dock, along with a new menu bar icon for Siri.

This is what Siri will look like on the Mac:

The source who shared the screenshots with MacRumors says that clicking on the dock icon brings up a small Siri wave form screen similar to that found on iOS devices when the home button is held down.

Users will also be able to click on the Siri icon in the menu bar to bring up the digital assistant. The hands-free ‘Hey Siri’ feature that recently debuted on iPhone devices will also be available, but you’ll have to enable it in the Preferences. There will also be a keyboard command to activate it.
