TODAY'S TIP:  TRAIN SIRI TO KNOW ALL ABOUT YOUR FAMILY & LIFE

- Labels: Author's Note, Siri, Reference, Tips, Tools


Question?

Wouldn't it be cool if you could tell Siri to just call your Mom, Dad, son, daughter, grandmother or boss just by speaking that description directly at the Siri prompt? Your phone seems so personalized and cool to others when you do just that!


Solution?

- There is certainly an easy way to make Siri the minder of your family, friends and associates. Navigate to Settings, General, Siri and then set up this page correctly. First of all, Siri should be toggled On. Then you can set Siri's voice by gender and nationality (mine is set to English - United Kingdom - which is a male British voice), Set Voice Feedback and then most importantly, My Info.

When tapped, My Info prompts you to select your personal Contact entry from which Siri will pull necessary information. As you can see, I have set mine to Cool iPhone Apps. I have then entered fields for the people I call the most, such as Mom, Dad, Child, Manager. Of course, you can customize these fields according to your needs by tapping on the grey field name to describe the relationship, and then entering a name into that field. Those names you will enter will, of course, be linked to the respective entry in your Contacts. I have also set fields for my uncle, brother, sister, aunt, etc. all of which are listed individually in my Contacts. The choice on customization is all yours!


COOL CONCLUSION: So now when you tell Siri, "Call my child", or "Call Mom", it will do just that! Basically, once you've set your own name in Siri under My Info, it will pull all your information from there to call those you've listed on your own main Contact entry.
