    Press and release the Siri button (instead of holding it down).

    There is no such thing as Siri's silent cousin. Only Siri.

    it's so weird talking to Siri and not have her talk back..

    come to think of it, Apple has stumbled upon something amazing....
    how do I talk to my wife and not have her yapping back at me?
    "Honey, why can't you be more like Siri on the new Apple TV?"

    You can ask Siri, what can I ask you. Other than that:


    • "Open App Store”

    • “Launch Netflix”

    • “Go to Photos”
    While playing video

    When you’re playing video content, there are a number of commands you can use to control playback.

    Ask Siri. Say something like:

    • “Pause this”

    • “Play from the beginning”

    • “Skip forward 90 seconds”

    • “Jump back 10 minutes”

    • “Turn on closed captioning”

    • “Turn on French subtitles”

    • “What did she just say?”

      In this case, Apple TV skips back 15 seconds and temporarily turns on subtitles.
    Get more information about a show

    You can ask questions to get more information about a programme you’re watching.

    Ask Siri. Say something like:

    • “Who stars in this?”

    • “Who directed this?”

    • “What’s this rated?”

    • “When was this released?”
    Get information

    You can ask Siri about other topics, like sport, weather and stocks.

    Ask Siri. Say something like:

    • “Who won the FA Cup?”

    • “Who are Tottenham playing tomorrow?”

    • “Who plays in goal for Milan?”

    • “How’s the weather?”

    • “What’s the weather in York?”

    • “When is sunset in Paris?”

    • “Where’s the NASDAQ today?”

    • “How’s Apple’s share price?”
    The results appear at the bottom of the screen.

    Me: "Siri, who do I thank for showing me what I can ask you?"
    Siri: "Thank TrueBlou"

    :)

    You hold down the button while you talk. If you just press and release it it will show you a bunch of different examples of commands.
