    We all know who Siri is, and that "it" has many abilities, including asking about the weather! I thought that in sharing some of our favorite uses for Siri, that we might learn new ways to utilize it!

    For example, I think my favorite use for Siri is when I'm driving and a text comes in. Rather than try and read the text on the spot, I can say "Hey Siri, read my texts." This way, I get to hear and respond to my texts safely.

    Another one that I tried recently was "Hey Siri, sing happy birthday". The response was comical, and I don't want to spoil it for those of you who want to check it out for yourselves. I will say that I tried this at my sister's house with Alexa... who's voice isn't too bad!

    I have to say in all the years of using an iPhone, I have never used Siri! I even got a MacBook and I’ve never used Siri. I really need to check it out!!

    I use Siri for voice dialing when driving, setting an alarm or timer, checking the current temperature, and playing music.

    We do too. And I also find that timers are useful when doing laundry especially when you don’t want to leave something in the dryer as long as everything else.

    I’ve been trying to get a date with Siri for years lol

    Seriously I use Siri for shortcuts and in the car for calls and text, weather and searches and a lot of small things like turning on the flashlight and opening apps

    She’s very useful

    I ask Siri for sports scores. Sometimes she understands, sometimes she does not. Asking about events like March Madness or the Super Bowl does not work well for me yet.

    I haven't used Siri or Hey Siri much at all. I guess I just haven't seen the need for it.

    Eh, I use Siri in my truck with CarPlay and I use Siri on my Apple TV for passwords. That’s about it.

    I think this post inspired one of the MoNa writers because they posted a thread about how to use Siri w/ timers!

    I set timers, enable and disable alarms, as well as set new ones.
    I also turn my lights on and off but that’s about it.

    There was a post here on iMore just yesterday about using Siri to check on Stocks. I checked it out and Siri gives good information so I'm chalking that up as another 'good to know' Siri function!

    I just was listening to the Tii podcast (Today in iOS), and learned that if you ask Siri if it watches Game of Thrones, it has several responses to that question

    I haven't either but I spent the weekend with a dozen cousins (lol didn't mean for the rhyme) and they, along with their families, are all diehard fans. Our flight was cancelled so we decided to drive home from Philly to Ohio, and everyone was FREAKED OUT, that they'd miss GoT.
