Before we go over fun things to ask Siri, let’s cover some basic information for those unfamiliar with Siri or the Apple ecosystem. Siri is an artificial intelligence (AI) digital assistant which can help with a variety of tasks. These include getting general information, sending messages, making calls, taking notes, playing music, navigating, and much more.

Siri can be used through text or voice commands. It is installed in Apple platforms like iOS, macOS, iPadOS, tvOS, watchOS, and HomePod.

Hey, Siri. Are you listening?

Digital assistants are commonly activated with trigger words. Siri is no exception. If you want Siri to start listening, say the words “Hey, Siri.” Then simply say your Siri command out loud.

There are other methods for getting Siri’s attention. Those rocking iPhones with a physical button can press and hold the home button. Newer iPhones have no home buttons, so activating Siri can be done by pressing and holding the side power button. With AirPods, you can double-press to activate Siri. On Apple Watches, you can press and hold the digital crown. The process is a little different with each device, but “Hey, Siri” always works!
