SIRI in an emergency

Post by ferret on Tue Nov 22, 2016 9:54 am

Just thought I would post this for all those living on their own...it is one of the reasons why I bit the bullet and bought an iPhone.

First of all, Siri must be activated. Siri is the voice of "Apple" that you can ask questions about whatever.

If your phone is plugged in, and you experience an emergency of the kind "I've fallen and I can't get up", you yell "Hey Siri" and then ask her to phone one of your contacts that you have imported into your phone. It really does work.

I can also tell you that Siri is a little bit of a sexist bitch. I asked her to call "Dru X" and she said "Do you mean Doug X?"...duh...she has been programmed that the pronunciation of Droo is really Drew. In my case, NOT. So I had to change the name of my friend to its long form which is Druscilla and Siri is quite content with that.

So, in the car plugged in, excellent emergency use...at home plugged in, excellent emergency use.

I would love to know if this can be done with the other Android phones.

Yes, on Android you can use Google to do this. I found that even on my Apple phone, when I installed Google and used the "ok Google" voice command , it was more responsive than Siri was.

Good to have options and let others know they exist. Thanks.

Try it out and see what you think. I suppose it could vary from phone to phone, but its worth testing out because if you should need it, you want the best response you can get.
