    Siri seems. Well.... Stupid. I kept trying to have it remember relationships and it kept failing. It would appear those are only assignable when using ICloud contacts ( the full scope) is anyone else seeing this problem is a bug or is it a feature?

    I can get basic things like mother but editing the field is unavailable in my Gmail exchange contacts.

    Unfortunately limiting siri functionality to only iCloud means I won't be using a lot of features if true.

    Yup. Spouse and manager are the only options. I can't see moving contacts. It would be a nightmare trying to keep them in sync with gmail.

    I understand that it's possible this may be a Gmail limitation in field description. However I need to do more research.

    I'll be reporting a lot. It fails a lot more often than it gets it. Try loading the mr forum in safari and dictate a response. It processed and gave up. It's also force restarted my phone twice. Beta is right !

    I actually got stuck in an endless loop with Siri. As soon as I would push the button it would end and tell me there was a problem. I ended up turning Siri off and back on again. That fixed the issue. This was after a crash.
