    Hello all,

    This may sound odd but three weeks in and I have recall used Siri but I was after some tips on what I can actually do with Siri on my phone.

    Just wondered how you all use Siri day to day or if you use it at all!

    Ask siri "what can you do?"

    She/he will literally give you a list.

    I use it to call people, set alarms, set timers, create reminders, add calender events, play music, etc.

    Did they change the way Siri interacts with you on the last update.

    She used to ask what she could help you with when you pushed the button now I get a message on the screen that say "what can I help you with?" instead of the voice message from Siri.

    When I'm driving I don't want to scroll through my music artist list cause it makes me take my eyes off the road, so I tell siri to "play, music, *artist name*" or "play, music, *artist name*, *song*" and the music app starts to play what i asked for :D

    Ask Siri "What is the meaning of life?"
    There are a few different answers.
    You will know when you hit the good one :)

    In addition to the above...

    You can listen to texts and dictate responses. ("Read texts", "Reply home in 30 minutes")

    You can ask for movie listings ("What movies are playing nearby?") and reviews ("Is Catching fire any good?")

    You can get sports scores and schedules. ("How did the Chicago Bears do last night?", "When does Manchester United play next?")

    You can get restaurant and business locations and reviews ("Where can I find Ethiopian food near here?")

    You can ask for calculations and conversions. ("What is 762 times 43?", "How many inches are there in 1.44 meters?")

    You can ask Siri to define words or terms for you. ("What does eviscerate mean?")

    You can ask for directions ("What's the best way to get to work from here?", "Take me home") and traffic conditions ("What's traffic like?")

    You can ask for weather conditions. ("What's the hourly forecast?", "Will it be nice outside this weekend?")

    And if all else fails, just engage Siri in conversation. The responses range from completely missing the point to hilarious.
