It is good to turn off the siri light while customising the Siri to ugh the light on top of the HomePod is a nice touch but it’s not really needed all that much. It certainly doesn’t hurt anything, but if you'd rather just have it turned off, you can do so in the settings. 
If you wish to turn off the Siri, just follow this little step below
>>Just find the toggle switch next to “Light When Using Siri” and tap on it to turn it off.

2. Play a Sound When Siri Is Activated
On a normal ground, the HomePod doesn’t emit a sound when Hey Siri is activated, although Siri herself will chime in with a “Mhm?” if she doesn’t hear a command within the first couple of seconds.
However, if you’d rather hear a chime whenever Hey Siri is activated, just tap on the toggle switch next to “Sound When Using Siri” and it will emit a short bass tone to know that it’s listening.

3. Change Siri’s Voice

You can decide to change the Siri voice because Siri has several different voices, and you’re not stuck with just using the default. You can change the voice in the settings by tapping on “Siri Voice”, although there aren’t many options.
From there, you’ll be able to choose between three different accents for English: American, Australian, and British. You can also change the gender of the voice between Male and Female.
That's all in that section, now if you know that you want to completely disable this Siri... Just follow the below procedure
