    I seem to be having some issues with Siri since the update to 10.2. These happen whether Siri is triggered by the home button or hey Siri.

    Somethings work perfectly properly like asking her to open an app or make a call for you. But some things are not working as they should...

    1) Siri will open and generate the text of a text message for you but once you ask her to send it she will say there is a problem and to try again later

    2) if you ask her to change a setting like turning on or off do not disturb/Bluetooth etc she will say there was a problem and she cannot complete the request to try again later.

    3) if you ask her to play music she will say she's having a problem playing your music and to try again later.

    These are just the ones I've noticed so far. But it's weird that some things work, like asking her to open Pokémon or make a call, and some things half work, like asking her to text someone and she'll take the message and create it/change it/etc but just not send it, and some things don't work at all like asking her to turn off do not disturb.

    All of these things previously worked before the update to 10.2

    Is anyone else having this problem is with Siri?

    Noticed the same thing, asked her to change the alarm and she said there was an issue. Once I rebooted the phone it worked instantly. This has happened twice now on beta 1 10.2. Seems Siri is just buggy on this update.

    Never had an issue before with Siri on every version of ios 10 including the 10.1 betas.

    Other than Siri issues everything works great and problem free.

    My Siri has no problems with alarms lol. It's like she has selective memory lol

    Siri is absolute garbage. At this point Apple needs to start over because their effort, even with a multi-year headstart, as an embarrassment compared to Google and Amazon.

    Don't tell that to my mom, she loves Siri.

    She isn't technical what so ever, but she loves talking to Siri. She thinks that when Siri gives a bad or non response, that Siri is just a sassy gal that has her own personality.

    Yeah, well I would rather Siri give a useful answer since technology is supposed to make things easier and less frustrating than otherwise.

    Yeah, same thing here, but for the timer, if i restart my iPhone, Siri will instantly set the timer, no issues at all, but after a couple of hours after the reboot, she will do nothing after i tell her to set the alarm, and after a while she will tell me there was a problem setting the timer.

    And yes, its very selective because everything else i tell her works normally, even setting the alarm. Very frustrating
