If you’re new to Siri, or just looking to expand your repertoire with the virtual assistant, you’ll love this. Sparhandy recently published a comprehensive guide of Siri commands. Someone, basically, took a lot of time to ask Siri questions and record what worked and what didn’t. They then prepared a list of all of the valid questions and commands you can address to Siri, including inquiries about your contacts, web searches, the weather, alarms, timers, and much more. The developers of the page have even updated it recently with the latest commands related to HomeKit and Apple Music, and there’s a handy PDF that you can print or download for reference.

    This will be exceedingly useful. I’ve had a lot of trouble getting Siri to do anything but the simplest of requests. I suspect that a lot of the trouble has been a phrasing issue. EX: When cooking “Siri, set an alarm to go off in five minutes” does not work. “Siri, set a timer to to off in five minutes.” does.

    “When cooking “Siri, set an alarm to go off in five minutes” does not work. “Siri, set a timer to to off in five minutes.” does.”

    I use the iPhone and  Watch cooking timer quite a lot. Siri gets confused with homophones “Set a timer for four minutes” so I resorted to “Set a time for 240 seconds”. This morning while listening to a podcast she got confused with “Rewind the 45 seconds”, a command that she understood many times before. I have noticed great improvement in Siri’s comprehension since Instarted using it, but there is room for improvment

    Anyway, thanks for the list of command. I saved it into iBooks as well as to disk.

    Thanks Lanks, I will give that a try.

    Another Siri tip “Call John Smith” and Siri replies ‘Which John Smith?’. Assigning a nickname in your address book can fix that. “Call Hoser”, ‘Calling John Smith’.
