    I was just trying some things on Siri and it seems she'll now read to you most Wolfram Alpha results.

    For example, if I said "What is 65 + 4" she'll go "Ok here you go:" then say "69".

    Anyone elses Siri on beta 2 doing this?

    I don't think it did lol. I guess that's why I was shocked when I heard her read me the answer. It doesn't read out the long ones it seems. I just tried "How old is Michael Phelps" and she said "Here you go:" and said "27 years and 4 days"

    Shouldn't she have said 21 years and 4 days? Or is Mr. Phelps a baby?

    Nice. It pronounces the square root symbol as sqrt though.

    It doesn't read all of them so if I asked it the cast of the Big Bang Theory, it shows me the cast but doesn't read it to me. Not a huge deal but would be more convenient.

    It does seem to be all Wolfram Alpha results. I just tried a currency conversion and that worked.

    Yeah if I ask him what 65 + 4 is, he'll say : 69 but If I ask him "who is the cast of the big bang theory" it just shows a wolfram sheet.

    Probably just for one line results then.

    Heya all,

    not to bring up an old thread, but is this still working? can seem to get Siri to read out any wolfram results on the released version of iOS 6?
