I am really struggling to find a use for Siri on my Mac, does anyone else feel the same ?
I live in Denmark, where Siri is a little behind, compared to the english language anyway, so in short, no. She is not even activated on my Mac. Any search or task she can do, I can do faster myself.
Especially when I ask her to open my last mail, and she can't find my emails...
I use Siri all the time on the iPhone, especially when driving. On the Mac, I disabled it. I can search for things way faster myself. I work a lot in Terminal, Siri has no clue how to use Terminal.
I don't even use Siri on my iPhone, there's no way I'm turning her on on my Mac.
+1. Neither on my Mac nor on my iPhone.
i've used it exactly 2 times; once, to try it, and once to show it to someone else.
but i use it on my phone often...
On iPhone and iPad, I do use her a couple of times a week, but like you guys, on my Mac I have used it like twice after toying with it in the betas.
I have never even activated it. It is one of the things that just gets in the way when logging into a new account.
never on my MAC - occasionally on iPhone.
I always use Siri to disable Siri. It is the right thing to do.
I never have, and never will.
My 2¢, Siri will never become popular until the 2 following things happen. Number 1 needs to happen NOW.
Siri needs to become a singularity across all devices and not a collection of unconnected and different Siris
Siri needs to become conceptually aware. Until you can communicate in a normal human way and not use memorized commands it's use will be limited
Never on my Mac, rarely on my iPhone. On the iPhone it fails to do what I ask the majority of the time, so I usually avoid it on my mac
Several times daily on my phone. About once a week on the Mac - I am having a hard time finding anything for her to do there, but I guess that it will change with the proposed 10.13 automation.
Regardless of the platform, I always prefer a decent keyboard to talking. Very occasionally use Siri on iPad while in a car or with Apple TV remote. But otherwise, the physical keyboard rules.
I might use Siri on the mac if I remember the keyboard shortcut and if Siri took less than a full minute to get going. Otherwise, no, I don't bother.
Siri is the only way I communicate with the phone in the car; and if dictation counts as Siri, I use it to dictate messages on the phone and watch -- not all the time, but often enough to be worthwhile.
On my phone, DAILY.
On my iMac at work, NOT ONCE. EVER.
I use it all the time for spelling and simple questions. Use it more on Mac than on iPhone.
How is that easier than just right clicking for spelling? You're fingers are already at the keyboard and mouse, no?
Never used Siri, ever.
Having read Apple's disclaimer, I just do not feel comfortable giving my phone permission to listen to me at all times, that my voice will be recorded, analyzed and identified in some foreign server. Too many shameful and/or illegal practices in years past from State and non-State.
siri only listens if/when you open it, and it only analyzes what you ask it.
Is there not an element of "always on" or "always listening" with the Hey Siri command?
'hey siri" works on the iphone, not the mac...
I understand, but when you replied here, it was to @Cubytus who specifically mentioned his hesitation at giving his phone said permissions.
ah, right. missed that. still, it takes 'hey siri' to activate siri, who then listens to what you ask it (or tell it).
