Why does Siri Even Exist?
I mean, honestly. It's weird to notice the evolution of each platform changing by the day. I remember my initial interest in apple was the seemless transition from phone to desktop, tablet, laptop etc. Now a decade later, I still have an iPhone but I can't help but wonder why. Files was never an easy management system so I always resorted to Google drive. Once drive was in use it was only natural to make use of Sheets, Docs, etc. to minimize the confusion in transferring work from one place to another. Always had a Gmail account. Never enjoyed apple calender so Google calendar was the obvious choice. Now using gboard and all their business tools. You can see the pattern... Now downloaded Google assistant after seeing their keynote recently and it's amazing how far ahead they are compared to Siri or Alexa. I would love nothing more than for apple to cut it's losses on Siri and make Google assistant fully integrated into the iPhone cuz that would be the only thing currently I am unhappy about with this application. Other than that, Google continues to impress.
What went wrong.
I had an iPhone 6s and I used this app with my fossil watch and it worked great. I got my text messages and phones calls and reminders and all. But then something went wrong with this app. I did an update and then it stopped working. I was no longer getting my text messages. Everything else was working fine. So I removed the app and then downloaded it again hoping it would work and it did not not. So then I thought maybe it was my phone because it was an older iPhone and the app was updated maybe there were some changes and my phone just was not getting it due to being old. So I upgraded my I phone to an iPhone XS Max hoping it would work. Excited to get the app downloaded and updated and set up my watch to my new phone and nothing. Still no text messages. I was very disappointed. I just don’t understand what went wrong if it was working fine before. Please go back and check to see what you did a few updates ago that changed to not receiving text messages any more. With every update I have hope that I will get my text messages again and still nothing no text messages coming in. That is the only thing that is missing from this app update and I don’t know why or what happened to stop receiving text messages. Please bring back the text messages so I can use this app again with my I phone.
I love it so much more than Siri
For the user that wants it to tell your daily reminders or your whole week at once you can easily add it in your routines. It’s as easy as saying “good morning” and it tells your events for the day. It will send texts and play music and read you the news and tell you if there’s traffic on your normal commute all with one command “I’m up or Good morning”. You can even tell the app that you are on your way home and it will text whomever you have it set up to and or broadcast to the speakers in your house to let everyone know that you you are indeed leaving work. It is so much easier than telling Siri to text each person and telling her 4-5 times just to get “one task done”. Even dinner is ready and it broadcasts to the kids rooms or phones just set it up. This is A+++
