These are the apps that you can use with Siri in iOS 10

With iOS 10, a number of different apps from select categories can now tap into Apple's voice-powered digital assistant, Siri. Using nothing but your voice, you can request a ride from Uber, make a call on Skype, or even send that friend of yours the $10 you owe them.

Note: The Siri update to some of these apps may not be available just yet.

At launch, Siri on iOS 10 works with apps in the following categories:

Ride booking

You can now use Siri to book car rides through services like Uber and Lyft. Just let Siri know where you need to go and what service you'd like to use, and it'll find your ride for you.

Calls

You can now initiate calls from third-party apps using Siri. With these new capabilities, calling your friends on Skype or contacting a colleague using Vonage Essentials is just as easy as placing a normal phone call, and with Siri integration, it's just a matter of giving your phone a shout.

Send Messages

Just like calls, you can now send messages through third-party apps with Siri. Now you can stay in touch with friends, family, and colleagues without a single keystroke.

Payments

Whether you owe a friend money or are owed money by a friend, services like Square Cash and Venmo offer quick options for moving money. Using Siri, you can send or request a payment without needing to open an app.

Photo searching

While you could previously use Siri to look up images in your photo library, you can now perform photo searches in third-party apps as well. You can use this new ability to, for instance, search for specific types of pins in Pinterest, or check out the latest fashions with Vogue Runway.

Workouts

Siri can now help you get into shape with the ability to start workouts. Apps like Zova and Runtastic use Siri integration to let you start your next session, be it a run, walk, or stretch.

Be sure to bookmark this page, which we'll continually update as more apps add support for Siri's new capabilities.

  • This is a feature of iOS 10 that I will use on a regular basis, particularly Uber.
  • Speaking of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger - Anyone got the VoIP Integration to work with the Phone app?
  • Hey Siri, send $20 to all of my contacts with Pay Pal. This is going to be good. Based on video examples. There is little to no security restrictions here. Possibly only needs to be done on an unlocked phone which still poses a risk if you have a PayPal profile. Posted via the iMore App for Android
  • If you give someone your unlocked phone then they can probably already pay for things through PayPal. Most people save passwords in the keychain, or credit card details. The idea is that no one will access your phone because it's locked. If you unlock it then of course you'll be able to do those things, with Siri or not
