How to send a Text Message using Siri
Sending a text message to a single contact or multiple recipients is quick and simple, making it possible to have a conversation with someone via text message. Siri can both send messages and read them out to you.
Sending a Message
To send an SMS or iMessage, activate Siri by pressing the home button (side button on the iPhone X), or by saying ‘Hey Siri’ if you have the feature activated.
Hey Siri, send a text message to Jane
Siri will then prompt you to dictate your message.
You can also include the message and recipient in the same phrase:
Hey Siri, text Jane I’m running 10 minutes late
Once you’ve finished dictating, Siri will then confirm the message back to you and ask what you’d like to do next:
- Send it
- Cancel it
- Review it
- Change it
Speak the option of your choice. Once the message is completed, Siri will ask you if you want to send it. To deliver the message say ‘Yes’.
Siri can also be used to read out the messages you receive.
Hey Siri, read my last text message
Hey Siri, read me new text messages from Jane
