Siri can be Better: 5 Ways Apple can Improve the Siri Experience for iOS Users

When Siri was first launched for iPhones in 2011, it was a charming thing to behold. We all knew it was a unique feature, at least when it was released. Since Apple has come a long way in improving Siri’s qualities and capabilities. Yet it still hasn’t worked like Google Assistant.

However, Apple has worked hard on Siri in the last couple of years, there’s still so much more that needs to be done. So, here we are exploring some of the ways we think Apple can improve its Siri virtual assistant. Let’s explore!

  1. Bring continuous conversation mode to improve the flow


The Google Assistant’s continuous conversation mode is one of its coolest new features. When this option is activated, the helper can listen after finishing a task (such as providing information or performing an action). You may make more fluid and natural connections between your queries and comments.

Siri, in contrast, barely used this feature. Why isn’t there? This is nothing new, after all. Although it may appear insignificant, everyone who utilizes both virtual assistants is aware of their significant impact. Arguably, this is the first way Apple can make Siri better.

  1. Provide more useful in-app results instead of more web page redirects

When you ask Siri a question you are redirected to an external web page instead of getting a verbal response with a result and this could be very frustrating.

In fact, you could have Googled it yourself in the time it takes to ask a query. Apple, what’s the point?

More prompt and helpful responses are desired and valued by users. Without opening a browser or going to a website, people want verbal responses and in-app outcomes that they can see and hear.

  1. Implement smarter interpretation of distinctions in user sentences

Another issue that many iPhone users have certainly encountered is getting inconsistent results when using two voice commands that are similar but different. As an illustration, suppose you ask Siri a question and she replies that she doesn’t understand. You might rephrase the question and ask it in the same manner. You find that suddenly it has an answer.

Although it makes sense that some statements can be read in two distinct ways by Siri, most of the time the language means the same thing. They ought to then deliver the same results in these circumstances.

  1. Improve contextual understanding of user follow-up comments

One of the biggest advancements ever to Google Assistant is its inclusion of contextual understanding. This enables it to understand that when you ask a question like, “What’s the weather like today?” and a follow-up query like “What will be the weather be like for tomorrow?” tells that you are always curious to know about the weather.

This capability was just added to Siri by Apple, and it was undoubtedly an upgrade. However, in practice, higher contextual comprehension translates into more natural dialogue with Siri and more accurate feedback. You can thread together brief conversations more efficiently if you combine that with the continuous conversation option.

  1. Provide offline support for basic tasks that don’t require the internet connection

Another improvement Apple can do with Siri is when you are in a location where there is a dead signal, you will find that Siri cannot do anything for you. Even Siri cannot even do things that do not require an internet connection since it is so hooked to the internet.
