If you use an iPhone, you must be familiar with Siri. If you have been using Android phones, this may be your first encounter with the app since there is no Siri for Android. So what is Siri?
Siri is a voice-controlled personal assistant on Apple devices. The idea behind the functioning of this virtual assistant is that you talk to it just like you would talk to a friend or a real assistant. Using voice, you communicate what you want the app to do for you. The app aims to help you get things done according to the requests you have made. The app is designed to offer users a seamless interaction with their devices where they talk to the app and the app talks back while trying to find or perform the requests that the user makes.
The app first appeared in 2011 when Apple introduced it in iPhone 4S. During its launch presentation, Apple described the app as the best thing on the iPhone. Siri serves as your phone based personal assistant and performs tasks like providing directions, controlling your smart home, and setting alarms and reminders amongst others.
While the original version of this app was restricted to the iPhone, the company has tailored it to run on various Apple devices including Apple Watch, iPad, Mac, iPod touch, and HomePod. With increasing capabilities and uses of the iPhone, the app has had to undergo several modifications. The apps intelligence has grown, and its capabilities expanded.
The improvements in the app’s intelligence and capabilities are also attributable to competition from similar apps running on different platforms. Microsoft users enjoy the services of a similar app called Cortana. Amazon offers another app with similar capabilities known as Alexa. Users of Android devices, on the other hand, enjoy the services of Google Assistant.
Even though it is best known as a workhorse, the app also has capabilities to give users good time. Today, the fun side of this app is even more pronounced than its productivity side. This is because most of the people who have interacted with it have asked ridiculous questions and ended up with ridiculous answers.

The app assists you with various tasks when you are out and about including provision of sport and entertainment information, making phone calls and sending messages, giving you tips and tricks to get organized, and answering your questions.
For example, if you are you are using the app to get organized for a road trip with friends, the app can perform tasks like reminding you of the trip date, calling or texting your friends to tell them you are running late for the trip, shuffling your road trip playlist on iTunes, finding a good restaurant for you in your destination. Is this not just amazing? So with Siri, a road trip does not have to be stressing since it will perform most of the organization tasks.
This is not all. It is not even half of what the app can do. Siri is not only intelligent but also customizable. You can teach the app to perform personalized tasks like pronouncing your name.
You can also tell it which of your contacts are family members and it can even learn to call your contacts by name. The app will tell you what the app will be like tomorrow when next your team will be playing, move meetings and even roll a die. The range of tasks that the app can perform is so wide and depends on the level of customization by the user.
