Send Messages

You’re in the car and need to tell your spouse you forgot a critical ingredient for tonight’s dinner. Do you pull over to dash off a text? Do you attempt to text at the next red light? Neither is a good option when Siri can help you compose SMS and iMessages without taking your eyes off of the road. Siri can send, read, respond, and search for messages in the Messages app on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and HomePod (if you’ve turned on Personal Requests). New as of iOS 14 and iPad OS 14, Siri can now send audio messages, too.
