    So basically I was wondering does Siri work (I'm guessing not) in-app. For example this morning I tried to get Siri to give me an exchange rate using an app I have installed, directly from the home screen; is this possible?

    Is there/are there certain method(s) for Siri to control apps rather than just opening them? If not does anyone have any tips to use it most effectively?

    Thanks guys

    Its up to the developers to add Siri functionality in their apps.
    But there are limitations what Siri can do so its not certain it will work.

    I've enabled Siri to be able to be used without the home button but it doesn't seem to start no matter how many times I call its name lol.

    In regards to being enabled in other apps, is there a way to see if the app has this functionality, e.g do I need to enable it somewhere?

    As per the API, apps can integrate Siri for Ride Booking, Messaging, Photo Search, Payments, VoIP Calling, Workouts, and Climate and radio.

    Additionally, if you scroll down below the screenshots in the iOS App Store, you will see an image and some text that basically tells you if that app supports Siri. If you don't see it for a particular app, that app does not support Siri.
