Supercharge Siri and Apple Watch with Make!
A few months back, we brought the power of Make to your iPhone and Android devices. Buttons on the mobile app now trigger scenarios, allowing you to execute a scenario manually with ease.
Now it's time to focus on Apple Watch integrations.
Today we’re bringing the magic of Make to Siri and Apple iOS! Leverage all the power of mobile buttons at the flick of a wrist or a simple voice command.
Read more about the mobile app here if you haven’t - it’s pretty cool, and you’ll need to know how to use buttons before you can add them to Siri and Apple Watch.
Triggering scenarios using voice commands on Siri
To create a button that can be activated with voice commands on Siri, you need to first press Add to Siri on the Create button screen. Clicking Add to Siri also works on existing buttons if you edit them.
You’ll then be prompted to add a phrase for When I say. This is the phrase you’ll use to trigger the button in Siri.
After you add this phrase, press the space under Do to assign the button Siri should execute when you use the phrase.
To assign the desired button to this Siri command, enter the button name after Press a button called.
As an example below, I assigned a button named Start to Siri. Now, every time we use the voice command Press Start button, Siri will trigger the Start button.
Once you’re happy with your new Siri command, you can press Add to Siri.
Congratulations! Now you can activate Make magic with a simple phrase of your own making - you’re practically a wizard! ✨
