SIRI isn’t like traditional voice recognition software that requires you to remember keywords and speak specific commands. SIRI understands your natural speech, and it asks you questions if it needs more information to complete a task. SIRI also can remember things such as who you were texting/emailing or where you were searching for a restaurant and will incorporate this information into the answers.
SIRI is also smart about using the personal information you allow it to access, for example, if you tell SIRI “Remind me to call Mom when I get home” it can find “Mom” in your address book, or ask Siri “What’s the traffic like around here?” and it can figure out where “here” is based on your current location. SIRI helps you make calls, send text messages or email, schedule meetings and reminders, make notes, search the Internet, find local businesses, get directions and more. You can also get answers, find facts and even perform complex calculations just by asking.
