Ok, thanks! I had no idea.This is why: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/108_(emergency_telephone_number)
Similarly if you said 999 rather than 911, it would dial emergency services even if you're not in the UK.
Well how many times are you going to say 108 for something other than dialing an emergency number?Seems that Siri could not distinguish between a number and dialing a number smh.
Seems more like it's a built-in shortcut for emergencies so that someone can quickly just say nothing more than the number and Siri would know what to do.Seems that Siri could not distinguish between a number and dialing a number smh.
They do it in case you are foreign having an emergency. Much like if you were in a different country and said "911". You may not know its 999 or 108 or whatever.A quick search says it is emergency number in India. I guess the bigger question is WHY do it? It's not like there is any practical reason to say 108 to Siri except to test and make a post. Jumping off a cliff will kill you. No reason to do it but I may try it just to see for myself if it's true.
