How to use Siri with WhatsApp
Siri is a personal assistant built into iOS. You can ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages, place WhatsApp calls, or read aloud your unread WhatsApp messages.
Turn on Siri
- Go to iPhone Settings > tap Siri & Search.
- Turn on Press Side Button for Siri or Press Home for Siri.
- Scroll down and tap WhatsApp.
- Turn on Use with Ask Siri.
On iPhone X, XS, XS Max, and XR you can press and hold the side button > tap Turn On Siri.
Note: Opening WhatsApp with unread messages will reset the notification badge. Siri will then interpret this as if there were no unread messages and therefore won’t read them aloud.
