Out of curiosity, have any of you started seeing any benefit from Siri's proactive features?

I remember the article on MacRumors where you'd have apps appear in the app switcher with "Good Morning" and music would automatically play when you plug in your headphones, etc. Well, I wake up everyday at the same time and check Reeder, Mail, and Safari and I've never seen those as suggested apps. The apps listed in Spotlight search are always my 4 most recently used apps.

I don't really care, but I'm wondering if this is a bug or if anyone is seeing any of those benefits?

EDIT: it was the proactive suggestions from this MacRumros. I've never seen any of this. I know iOS 9 is only 5 days old, but since I follow the same routine I was wondering.

yeah, it does seem that Spotlight shows the most recently used apps rather than suggesting ones it thinks you might need. When I connect to my car Bluetooth I do get a Maps notification telling me X minutes to Y Traffic is normal/unusually heavy right now but don't get playlist suggestions. At best I get an app suggestion in the lower left.
