Funny conversations and responses.
“Siri what’s the climate in the lounge?”
“On it……the patio doors are closed”
For some reason Siri keeps playing the same NPR News Now episode from four days ago when I ask it to play my update. It does the same even if I say, “Play the latest news from NPR” or “Play today’s news from NPR.” I tried restarting Podcasts and also my iPhone. Any suggestions?
Until very recently, I could ask Siri to add a reminder to a specific list as well as set a due date/time for it. Now, it will add the reminder to the appropriate list, but it doesn't set the due date/time and so won't remind me.
Is there a different syntax now?
I hope somebody can explain this issue to me or at least there are people with the same problem. So basically up until I have updated my iphone to ios17 it was never the problem. After requesting Siri to play music, it’ll always turn on YT music on the background while I’m busy, doing chores or else. It’s the main reason I use voice assistant at all. But recently, after the phone’s been updated to ios17 it stopped working properly. When i say “Siri, play (the name of the song)” now it only replies “Sorry, you need to continue in YT Music”. Again, it was never the issue. I’ve checked my subscription, all the settings but can’t understand why it’s not working. Not that it’s frustrating or angers me, but it’s rather inconvenient and definitely cancels the reason i use voice assistant. Every time I’m cooking, doing the dishes or getting ready it’s quicker to have VA to turn on the music and now it can’t even do this much. Feel like it’s useless now. Is this the ios17 bug? YT music bug?
ITS GREAT WITH ENGLISH BUT VERY BAD IN HEBREW WHEN WILL IT BE BETTER?
When I ask siri to do something and she does it, I usually say thank you and siri sometimes responds with: you’re welcome, dont mention it, my pleasure, etc. But she doesnt do it all the time. As often as not she is just silent. Does anyone know what causes the software to switch between polite and not polite?
I’m pretty sure Siri actually hates me since I told her to fuck off in 2016. I got into bed tonight with my phone on the charger but forgot to make sure my alarm is set because I have a fluctuating schedule and I have to get up early sometimes.
Me: “hey siri”
Me: “can you make sure I have my alarm set for 7 am please”
Siri: “your alarm is set for 3am”
Biiiiiiiitch now I’m up and typing on my phone about to ruin my sleep for the next 6 hours. Also, I hate that it doesn’t tell you how much sleep you’re getting anymore. I liked that function.
I recently invested in an Apple Watch and have been trying to use Siri a lot more to make calls on my wrist. But for some reason I just don’t understand why it’s so damn dumb. Why can’t it make calls just using the first name?
E.g. I have two contacts for the same person, “Dad” (personal number) and “Dad work” (self explanatory). If I say to Siri “call/text dad”, every single time it asks me “Did you mean “dad work”?” - no, I didn’t. If I did, I would’ve said “call dad work”.
Sorry for the rant but I just don’t understand how something so basic can be broken. I’m not asking Siri to tell me the distance to mars, I just need this one basic functionality to work. Is there any way to fix this? And no, I don’t want to change the personal number to something like “dad personal”.
It used to be that when I said "Hey Siri" to create a reminder at my desk, either the iPhone or the iPad would pick it up and do it, but never both. Now since recently, both are grabbing every Siri request. They both create the reminder (or whatever the request is) and then they both verbally respond in chorus. I already checked they're both on the same wifi network, they're both on the same iCloud account, and everything is updated to the latest OS. Any suggestions how I can get them to cooperate again instead of duplicating?
they're both running iOS 6 and 7 respectively. why aren't they working with siri
"Reminder: You have an event today: Drinks at six thirty PM at Three Duck Brewery: twelve thousand eight hundred and seventy two north eighty three street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin fifty three thousand two hundred and thirteen, United States."
I need the reminders, but I'm losing my mind.
I understand that my iPhone needs to be unlocked for some Siri actions to take place. Even when I’m wearing my Apple Watch. (🤔)
What annoys me is that it insists on finishing the full sentence “You’ll need to unlock your iPhone first.” regardless of whether my face was already right in front of the camera when it said the word “You’ll…”
Is there any way around this? Sure, it’s only two seconds. But when it happens about 155 times a day…
I can’t count how many times I’ve asked Siri to do a simple task like setting a timer, only to hear a chipper ‘good afternoon’ while completely ignoring the commands I just gave her. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know of a fix?
If you say, set an alarm in 30 minutes, it sets a timer instead. You can't snooze a timer, I want an alarm. If I say alarm, I mean alarm not a timer! Anyone have a fix?
Why do I need unlock my phone when I want to Start voice conversation with ChatGPT with Siri gpt voice shortcut ?
For the last couple days, whenever my wife starts to make tea, Siri suggests a 5 minute timer, which is how long she steeps it for. Is that normal? Does Siri also know when you're doing these sort of routines?
I’m I the only one that experienced Siri activating herself when she says the following joke?
“What did the horse say to its phone? Neigh Siri”
Siri is mispronouncing my wife’s name. She has a very common first name and Siri used to pronounce it just fine, but at some point things went wrong and have been wonky ever since.
I have checked her details in the Contacts app and the phonetic and pronunciation name fields are blank. Oddly, though, there is a message at the very bottom of her contact details that reads “The pronunciation of this person's name has been updated.”
I have no idea how the pronunciation of her name has been updated. Especially as the phonetic and pronunciation name fields are blank.
To troubleshoot, I deleted her contact record altogether. It seemed to correct the issue for a day or two, but the issue (and the message “The pronunciation of this person's name has been updated.”) returned by itself.
Searching for the phrase “The pronunciation of this person's name has been updated.” returns zero results and Apple support have been hopeless.
So, over to the Reddit hive mind. Can anyone sort this out for me? It’s driving me nuts.
They have YouTube Premium, so when I ask for a song or station on YouTube it tells me to open the app and add it to my home -__-
I asked to connect via bluetooth, as I have Spotify premium and was rebuked.
We share apps in our Apple family and I’m recognized as a permitted person but getting the run around.
One of my attempts to skip a song was telling my phone “Hey Siri repeat after me Hey Siri skip this song” and felt like Cartman from Southpark, just less successful
In the not too distant past I used to easily be able to ask Siri to compute math problems no matter how complicated they seemed (“Hey Siri what’s the hundredth derivative of sin^2 (x) / e^x ?”) with no problem. Now whenever I ask it to solve any math or science problem it just tells me “Here’s what I found on the web. Check it out” with results usually about things completely unrelated.
Me: Siri, add chips to my shopping list
Siri waits for a while: Something went wrong, please try again.
I repeat a few times and get the same response.
Other annoying things like..
Me: Siri, add Garlic Bread to my shopping list
Siri: Calling Michael B***d
What on earth is wrong with it? It was good a few years ago. Alexa rarely gets things wrong..
