When I try to invoke a Siri shortcut on my new Series 4, Siri just says 'I don't recognise that command'. Anyone else having the same problem?

Siri Shortcuts does now work after migrating to the S4 (which naturally entailed repairing).

Initial thoughts are that Siri Shortcuts are less capable than Workflow was. For example, there is no Siri Shortcuts Watch app, and one of the shortcuts I use most calculates fuel economy so needs you to enter miles and litres when you refuel. I used to be able to do this right in the Watch, but now it tells me I need to use the Shortcut on my iPhone. o_O

I have a Siri shortcut set up for the Overcast app. I spoke the short cut into my watch and the overcast app started playing on my phone almost instantly. Pretty smooth. Particularly coming from a series 0 watch !

I have a friend who wants to use Overcast with her HomePod. Do you have one and if you do could you try this, please?

I’m afraid I don’t have a HomePod. Overall I’ve been impressed with how overcast has as updated the app. Forced touch has interesting features and the watch app has pushed the envelope. But I can’t verify
