How to chat with Siri on macOS. No voice commands needed

The Apple Voice Assistant can be useful for a quick query, clarification of a fact or weather forecast. However, it is not always convenient to use voice commands, and on stationary computers (Mac mini, Mac Studio And Mac Pro) is not possible at all without a connected headset.

Is there a way to communicate with Siri using correspondence, entering the necessary requests directly from the keyboard. This feature has been on the iPhone for a long time, the developers from Cupertino have added a similar option to macOS.
