If you've already purchased the iOS app, the Mac companion app is free to download. The iOS app and Mac app are bundled together as one price.
With Shortcuts Remote you can connect remote-controlling your Mac with Siri.
For example, tell Siri on your HomePod to mute the volume on your Mac.
Or tell Siri on Apple Watch to pause Netflix on your Mac.
Or use the Shortcuts app to create more sophisticated workflows – controlling every aspect of your Mac with the power of AppleScript.
And the best thing: Shortcut Remote control even works from remote: All data is securely synced via iCloud. So you can even take a screenshot on your Mac while at the gym.

A great start
This app has a ton of potential! I’m impressed with the features it already has, and I can’t wait to see if the developer will add more. I’m having trouble getting my Mac to do things on my phone(s), but it might just be user error.
This is a great app.
Keep on developing it, dev! I want to see sleep, among other things! Thanks!

Hey! Thanks for the feedback! I agree that‘d be a great addition. If you're familiar to Apple Script, you could also program your own shortcuts (I guess even a sleep command would be possible). – Frederik
this works great for me
being able to control my mac using siri on my homepod, and the shortcuts app in general is a dealbreaker for me!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
