Posted November 18, 2020 11:25:00 Apple’s Siri voice assistant is the most talked about piece of technology in the world, and we’re still waiting for its first beta software release.
But according to the company, the company’s not finished with the software.
“We’ve been working on Siri for a long time, and today we’re introducing a new set of tools that you can use right now,” the company wrote in an email to The Verge.
The software is called Siri Professional and it’s coming to iPhones, iPads, and Macs this fall.
Siri Professional is an update to the Siri iOS and macOS desktop apps, and it includes the new built-in voice-recognition software.
It’s also available on Apple Watch, and a new Apple TV version will support Siri Professional.
There are a number of improvements to Siri Professional, including a new “smart speech” feature, a “smart location” feature that allows users to search for nearby stores, and an “advanced search” feature.
Siri Pros also has some new features.
“It’s the first time Siri is able to make predictions for you, with suggestions that you might be searching for information on your behalf, and even if you’re not searching for anything,” Apple wrote in a blog post.
“Siri also understands how you might speak your name, when you say “yay” or “nay” to Siri.
Siri is smart enough to remember your voice even when you’re in a dark room.
This means you can now get directions and even see where you are while you’re out and about, even if your phone is out of range.”
The first app to feature the Siri Advanced Search feature is Siri Professional 2, which includes the feature.
“The Advanced Search features help you find things even if Siri doesn’t understand you,” Apple said.
“Say, ‘What time is it?’ or ‘What is the weather?’ or just say, ‘Hey Siri, I need directions.’
And Siri will quickly tell you exactly what it knows about you and what you’re looking for.”
The Advanced Search system works like this: The app asks Siri, and Siri can “learn” about you based on your voice, your physical location, and the phrases you’ve used to describe yourself.
“When you say ‘yay,’ for example, Siri can learn that you want to buy the Best Value iPad, so it will suggest the Best Buy iPad with $50 coupon for $25.
It’ll also suggest the best deal on the Best Deal iPad, and so on.
This lets Siri know when you’ve spoken your name a million times, when your location is perfect, or when you are the first person to call.
The Siri Advanced search feature will also allow Siri to suggest new locations and to suggest other types of items, like movies and books.
The app also has the ability to suggest that you “follow a link,” and Siri will also know that you’re following a link and suggest a book you should read.
“By default, you will get suggestions that the store is near your house or the airport, but you can also search for restaurants and other places that are nearby, too.” “
In list search mode, you can suggest that the app search for specific locations and products, and then the app will then find nearby items at the location you’ve suggested,” Apple writes.
“By default, you will get suggestions that the store is near your house or the airport, but you can also search for restaurants and other places that are nearby, too.”
There’s a lot of information Siri can glean from you, and you can tap a star to see more of it.
The Advanced search will also “provide hints about where you have to find information to find the best deals.”
“In this mode, when a star indicates a place that is close to you, you’ll get hints about the location and what to do there,” Apple says.
“You can also share these hints with other people who are nearby who will also get suggestions for those nearby locations.”
The new Siri Pros are available to download for free on Apple’s website and through the Apple App Store.
The company’s going to release additional features for Siri Pros, including an ability to “look up a name or address” and a “show nearby locations and recommendations.”
“When the app detects that the user is nearby, it will prompt the user to input a name and address, then show nearby locations on the screen,” Apple explained.
“If the user has a location that they can’t find on the map, Siri will suggest directions to the nearest nearby store, airport, or hotel.”
Siri Pros will also be available for Macs and iPhones starting this fall, and Apple is also planning to launch a standalone version of the Siri Pros for the Mac starting in early 2018.
