iOS 10: WhatsApp, Zomato, and Other Apps That Now Work With Siri
Highlights
  • iOS 10 allows non-Apple apps to use Siri
  • WhatsApp is one of the apps that use it
  • Use voice commands to execute actions

iOS 10 lets third-parthy app developers integrate Siri with their apps. This allows interesting possibilities such as using Siri to send WhatsApp messages, or order a cab. Even though Siri is better and faster, it still isn't great at recognising Indian English accents. However, if Siri understands what you're saying these new features could save you a lot of time.

For this to work, head to Settings > Siri > App Support. Then grant access to all apps that you want to use Siri with. Once you've done that, check out our top picks of apps that use Siri, in the list below. To use the apps, just tell Siri to use them in your commands.

 

1. WhatsApp
Hugely popular chat app WhatsApp now lets you use Siri to send messages and place calls. The next step would be allowing Siri to read out messages too, but that feature isn't available yet.
