Apple today announced that American Airlines, Dexcom, Caviar, Merriam Webster, and Spectre have added Siri Shortcuts support to their apps this week. Airbnb, Drop, ReSound, and Smarter also plan to add Siri Shortcuts integration to their apps between March and April, according to Apple.
In the Airbnb app, for example, you’ll be able to access details on your stay such as the check-in time and Wi-Fi password by setting up a Siri voice command such as "Hey Siri, my Airbnb stay," according to CNET.
Apple says thousands of apps now support Siri Shortcuts, which debuted as a key feature of iOS 12 last year. Apple’s examples include Waze, Nike Run Club, Seamless, Instacart, DSLR Camera, Pandora, Tile, Overcast, Evernote, Citymapper, Kayak, Hotels.com, British Airways, VRBO, and The Weather Channel.
Siri Shortcuts let you create voice and tap-activated automations that can complete multiple complex tasks in just a few seconds. The feature is available in the Settings app under Siri & Search and through the dedicated Shortcuts app.
