14 Questions to Ask Siri to Boost Productivity
Do you know there are many questions to ask Siri, and they can all help increase your productivity? Yup, Apple’s intelligent assistant can make your life easier and more convenient. So enough jokes for now, let’s put her to work. Shall we begin?
1. What’s the Weather Today?
Nothing spoils a dinner date, a meeting or a flight than bad weather conditions. But sometimes, listening to weather channels can get really boring. It’s hard to get information as well when you’re in transit. The good news is Siri can share this information with you! Just ask, “Hey Siri, how’s the weather today?”
2.Where’s the Nearest Korean Restaurant?
Let’s face it, not everyone likes to use Google Maps. If you find yourself struggling with directions, use one of my favorite Siri hacks. Ask her for directions. Not only does she tell you the address, but she’ll provide you with navigation!
3. What Is the Square Root Of 144?
Siri is a math genius. She can do calculations in a jiffy, sparing you from the headache of trying to complete the formulas yourself. Don’t have algebra homework for her to complete? You can use her for everyday calculations such as tips, discounts, calorie count, portion sizes, grams, etc.
4. Can You Call Mom?
Laws these days make it difficult for you to make a call while driving – rightfully so. Nevertheless, what if it is an emergency or perhaps, have too many things on your hands? Siri can help facilitate the call hands-free. Just make sure you can label your contacts properly, and she’ll dial the number for you.
5. Can You Set My Timer for 10 Minutes?
When you only have 24 hours a day to accomplish so much, it’s essential to make every moment count. You may set aside a good time to rest, read a book, finish the laundry or send an email. However, rather than keeping on updating your alarm, delegate the task to Siri.
6. Can You Launch Facebook?
If you are so pressed for time you cannot even take a moment to open up your apps; this is one of the best questions for you to ask Siri. You can easily customize this command with other programs, such as LinkedIn or Twitter. Again, don’t forget to integrate Siri into these apps to make sure she understands what you mean.
Note: Siri can also perform some tasks in the app. For example, it can post a status update for you. It, therefore, makes her a reliable social media partner.
7. Can You Tell Me the Traffic in L.A.?
We know traffic in L.A. is horrendous, but how terrible is it really going to be? Her answer will help you a great deal in planning your meetings, errands or a trip to the airport.
8. How’s the NASDAQ Doing Today?
Are you keeping track of the market’s movements? When you can’t watch business news, allow Siri to give you the information in brief and easy-to-understand recap.
9. Can You Play a Bruno Mars Song?
Did you know music can make you more efficient? In fact, surgeons listen to them while they’re busy saving lives. But if you’re having a hard time making a choice or launching your Spotify, ask Siri to be your DJ for the day.
10. Can You Take These Notes?
Sometimes, the best ideas come in while you’re doing something else, so how do you make sure you don’t forget them? This is one of the questions to ask Siri if you need help in transcription. Your Apple assistant can also help you set reminders. You can even correlate your tasks with location and time. For instance, you can ask her to remind you to call your boss when you’re about to arrive at work.
Siri can also send an email to one your contacts, complete with a subject. Can’t read texts and emails while busy running? Siri will do it for you.
11. What’s the Cheapest Smart Watch on the Market?
When you’re planning to buy something, it’s time to do some research. You check out blogs and reviews, as well as watch demo videos. You also compare prices and brands. This research stage can take days and lots of precious time. Use this question to start your research of a new product.

Ask Siri anything under the sun from history to pop culture, and she’ll give you the best answer. Try “What artist performed at the Super Bowl in 2016?”

Confused about “it’s” and “its”? Don’t know how to spell a certain word? Don’t have any idea what “love” means? Easy-peasy. Siri makes proofreading and writing less complicated.
