Before upgrading to iOS 8 all I needed to do was to say "call John" and it will automatically call John in my contact list. however, after going to iOS 8, siri will ask me to confirm whether John is the person I want to call even though I only have one John in my contact list. anyone else seeing this change? Is this going to be fixed? Thanks in advance

Sounds like a feature, not a bug.

This will only happen if for e.g. I have more than 1 John. Which will make sense

Siri has always made me confirm home or mobile. It has never made me confirm whether I want to call a contact and the same with sending texts, though Siri does read back my text and ask if I am ready to send it.
