Siri is great fun to use, but it becomes even better when you let it know who your family members are. All you have to do is make sure each member of your family has an entry in the Contacts app, and then tell Siri about your relationship to that person.
In this tutorial we’re going to show you how to add relationship information to your contact card using Siri. Adding relationship information lets you use Siri in a much more natural manner. You can say things like “Send a message to Mum” or “Hey Siri! Send an email to my brother” or “When is my dad’s birthday?”. This is another step to turning Siri into your personal assistant.
It’s easy enough to get this information added to Siri. Simply ensure your Contacts app is up to date with all your family members, and then let Siri know who is who.
Let Siri know who your family members are, and you can interact with it using family titles such as ‘mum’.
