Making calls and sending messages on Circuit using Siri on your iOS device

Last updated:

With iOS 10 and SiriKit, you can make calls and send messages on Circuit using Siri and, thus, you are able to keep in touch with your team in hands-busy situations.

Bring up Siri on your iOS 10 device and, then, ask Siri to call a person or send them a message, start or join a conference call, or send a message to a group conversation, Conference Bridge or Community.

Tip:

To bring up Siri on your iOS device: press and hold the Home Button or just say Hey Siri, if you have enabled the "Hey Siri" feature on your device.

Tip:

Asking Siri, what can you do? will get Siri to show you examples of all the commands you can use with Siri including the Circuit ones.

  1. To make a Circuit call to a person using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Call [Person name] using Circuit.
    Siri will start calling the person using the Circuit App.
  2. To send a message to a person using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Send [Person name] a Circuit message.
    3. Siri asks you: What do you want to say to [Person name]?
    4. Speak your message.
    5. Siri brings up a preview of your message and asks you: Ready to send it?
    6. If the message looks good, say Send so that Siri sends your message; otherwise tap on the message to correct it.

    The message is sent to the 1-to-1 conversation you have with the person the same way it is sent when you type a message on Circuit. If the conversation does not already exist, it will be first created.

  3. To start or join a conference call using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Call [Conversation title] using Circuit.
    Siri will start a conference, if it has not yet started, or add you to the ongoing conference call using the Circuit App.
  4. To send a message to a conversation using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Send a message using Circuit to [Conversation title] saying [Message].
    3. Siri brings up a preview of your message and asks you: Ready to send it?
    4. If the message looks good, say Send so that Siri sends your message; otherwise tap on the message to correct it.

    The message is sent to the conversation the same way it is sent when you type a message on Circuit.

Note:

You can use the first name and, optionally, the last name of a person in your voice commands.

Note:

Siri cannot know the name of every person or conversation in Circuit. Circuit makes available to Siri a list of up to 100 names that Siri can use to interact with your Circuit App. These names come from the list of your favorites (people or conversations). If there are less than 100 favorites, the rest of the list is filled in with your most recent 1-to-1 conversations.
