iOS: iOS 10 finally gives some third-party apps access to Siri. While this doesn’t include mapping or music apps, which would have probably been the most useful, it does include a bunch of other apps types, including messaging apps. Here’s what’s working so far.
As you’d expect, apps are getting updates constantly, but a bunch have already worked in Siri-integration. This means you can use Siri to access data in the app or create a new action within the app, like ask Siri to call a car for you using Uber.
Here’s a list of what we’ve seen so far:
- Blast Baseball 360
- Cisco Spark
- Discover Mobile
- Essentials MobileConnect
- Lyft (unavailable in Australia)
- Map My Run
- The Roll
- Square Cash (unavailable in Australia)
- Venmo (unavailable in Australia)
- Vogue Runway
More apps are certainly on the way. Once you have an app downloaded, you’ll need to give Siri access to it, as they’re not linked by default:
- Head to Settings > Siri > App Support.
- Set the toggle for any apps you want Siri to access.
With that, you’ll be able to use Siri to access whatever you want in those third-party apps.
