Siri is a virtual assistant with a voice-controlled natural language interface that uses sequential inference and contextual awareness to help perform personal tasks for iOS users.
Spun out of the DARPA-funded CALO project, Siri was initially developed by Dag Kittlaus and his team of SRI International as an iPhone app. Apple bought Siri in 2010; in October 2011, the company re-released it as part of iOS 5. Siri is available on iOS, macOS, watchOS, homeOS, and tvOS, though the service has different features available depending on the platform.
The trigger phrase for Siri could change from “Hey Siri” to just “Siri”, with an update set to arrive in 2023 or 2024.
With the first developer beta of tvOS 16.2, Siri can now recognize your voice when you talk to the voice assistant.
tvOS 16 is bringing a redesign and new personalization to users who use Siri to search for content on their Apple TV.
