    I've been using Siri A LOT recently. I don't know what they did, but they updated the hell out of her and made everything (including the smoothness of her voice) sooo much better. I had 17 messages that I haven't opened since Wednesday and had her read them to me, reply, edit the reply's, and so on. Even her reading back the texts were the way I would say it! From calm tone to bursting LOL.

    Just fanboying right now, lol. Hey Siri is too cool. They did a great job.

    Never, it's a battery waster, and completely useless, do you know how stupid people looks when you're sitting in a desk asking siri to remind you of stuff?

    I don't use Siri.

    Instead I find Google Now a brilliant tool that's accurate, fast and efficient.

    Siri is too juvenile, cutesy and contrived. Programmed to entertain and impress the easily amused it's a time waster.

    I use Siri every single day. The best part is having a Siri button on my car steering wheel so I can tell her who to call and which songs to play on Apple Music.

    Tried that with a few songs and woo.

    Also, buying a Mustang later this year and it has Car Play which I can't wait to explore!

    I went from using it as a novelty, making a call or two, to never..... After getting my Apple Watch last year I'm finding myself using it a lot through it. Setting alarms, reminders, even math questions related to my work. I'd say the watch has made it more accessible. I've never used it for mail or messages..... Toying with it now though I do see some benefits.

    Alternatively , the App Store has an app called 'Hound' that's crazy impressive......

    I will only consider using it when Siri can correctly respond this: play 僕らは今のなかで performed by μ's.
    plus, typing is always quieter than speaking. There are a lot of cases you just cannot speak nonetheless.

    I use Siri all the time especially now with Hey Siri. I use it to create reminders and to send texts all the time.

    Same! CarPlay is also pretty cool and convenient while driving.

    Rarely. I only use Siri to dictate text messages on occasion. I don't use many Apple apps or services on my phone, so Siri is of limited use to me.

    Never. Just tried it right now to send a text to my wife. What a pain in the ass to use Siri. I guess for driving it would be ok.

    Actually , Only for my homekit devices (Philips Hue). I am a French people and Siri can't do a lot of things that she can in English (Wolfram alpha search for example). Maybe With iOS10 and third party apps...

    I don't use Siri nor Google Now regularly, unless I want to just have fun or I'm in a situation where I can speak without embarrassment and typing **** on a mobile keyboard is too difficult. That, or when I'm lonely.

    My dad however, I showed him how to use Siri because it's easier not only for me to teach him something but I'm sure it's easier to him (though his English isn't the best so it's a bit of a problem).

    never, turned it off when setting up my iphone.

    waste of time and inaccurate my fiancee uses it.

    annoyed her that one day she told siri to "get stuffed"

    it showed her stuffed toys from the web.

    Not as much as I should. It works very well for me when I do. Need to use voice dictation a lot more.
