    It's long overdue, and a simple question. Will OS X finally get Siri in 2016? I realize this is total speculation, so just polling the masses to see what you think.

    I'm curious why adding Siri would be good idea?

    OS X and iOS have completely different user interfaces and I don't see how Siri would be beneficial on OS X.

    For the record in my opinion Apple has added far too many features from iOS to OS X already, very few of them are beneficial. METAL has some potential (that is assuming majority of developers will eventually support it which isn't certain).

    I somewhat agree. But there are times when I'm using my computer where id like to tap a button and say "Text Message ebenezum- How are you today" or simple things like "Hey siri whats the weather like" I think there is certainly a use for siri on the desktop.

    Apple can add Siri to macOS, or not add it, I don't care because I don't use it on iOS devices either.

    Just another piece of bloat and bugs. I hope not...!

    I haven't tested but I think this might be possible already using speech recognition in Automator action?

    Adding Siri to OS X would likely lead to more bugs and feature bloat if Yosemite and El Capitan are any indication...

    I don't get the correlation between adding Siri, and bugs in the OS. I've ran into hardly any issues at all with Yosemite or El Capitan. Personally I'd love for "hey Siri" functionality in OS X.

    "Hey, Siri!" would likely get annoying very quickly in an office setting.

    I have an office by myself, so it'd be handy. In a shared office space, yeah, it'd be bad, but it just depends on the office.
