We already know that the WhatsApp team is keen on not letting their users go bored. As such, they are releasing major updates quite often, focusing both on security and other practical changes, but also on some new features. The latest update is dedicated to people who only use an iPhone and this happens because now they brought some Siri-compatible skills.

Impressive Addition

For the first time now, Siri can read your messages to you if you wish. If you want to take advantage of the latest addition to the popular messaging app, then you will have to download the latest version that is available in the store. Besides the fact that it only runs on iPhones, the new version will only work on phones that run on the most recent iOS, namely version 10.3.

How to Use It

According to the update notes, after you install the latest version, you only need to say out loud “Hey Siri, read my last WhatsApp message’ and the assistant will do this for you. Besides hearing the message, you will also hear some details about the sender so that you know who sent it.

Besides the fact that it is fun to hear the message directly and reply to it quickly, there are also some practical reasons for this change. For example, it comes in extremely handy if you’re driving and don’t want to take your eyes off the road.

Moreover, you can also use Siri for transcribing your reply, thus making the communication process much easier. However, this is only the most recent update of a long line of interesting and fun changes to the most popular messaging app in the world. And the developer are right to try to improve it often, since more than 1 billion people are using it actively every day.
