MacVoices #19177: Road to Macstock – Rosemary Orchard On Getting More Out of Siri

We get back on The Road to Macstock in a conversation with Rosemary Orchard about her session that will focus on getting more out of Siri. Siri is much more than just a voice assistant in your HomePod; Rose tells us what some of those things are, why it is easier than ever to tap the power of Siri using Shortcuts, and why you should never be afraid of trying anything with Siri. Functionality, security, and privacy are all better on Siri, and Rose tells us why.
