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.
Note: These features are only available on iOS 12 or newer.
- Go to iPhone Settings > Siri & Search > turn on Listen for "Hey Siri" or Press Side Button for Siri.
- iPhone SE (2020)and iPhone 8 and older: Turn on 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 > Turn On Siri.
Visit the Apple Support website for specific information on how to use Siri and how Apple handles data sent through 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.
