Apple's Siri To Report The News
According to 9to5mac.com, the feature only appears to work on iOS 11.2.5 beta and not earlier versions of iOS including iOS 11.2.1 which is the latest public version.
The response is also limited to situations where Siri assumes you may not see a display like when invoking Siri with the “Hey Siri’ hot phrase, when using headphones, or when using CarPlay.
HomePod, which features an illuminating touch surface but not a full display, advertises a “Hey Siri, give me the news” query which will likely rely on this feature.
When prompted with a hardware button, Siri instead defaults to showing you Apple News headlines or Safari sourced results if Apple News is uninstalled or unavailable.
