Gmail app for iOS updated with Siri Shortcuts support

20 February 2020 0

Google has updated the Gmail application for iOS with support for Siri Shortcuts. It means iOS users will now be able to make use of Siri for getting things done in Gmail with ease. They can make use of voice commands for faster and convenient usage and that too without having to do any manual work.

Gmail Siri Shortcuts support is available for both iPhones and iPads. The only thing to ensure is that the user is running at least iOS 12 operating system and the latest Gmail app version on his device. It currently allows users to create a shortcut for sending an email where they will need to say, "Hey Siri, send an email.".

Using the voice command will open Gmail directly into the compose window. You can then start typing the email and other relevant details straightaway. The shortcut eliminates the need for launching the Gmail app and then tapping the compose email option to get started. It will undoubtedly a handy feature for those who spend a good portion of their time sending emails.

It is also worth noting that Gmail's Siri Shortcuts is an optional feature. It means it is up to the user when he or she wants to enable or disable the feature. It can be turned or off via either Gmail app settings or via Siri Shortcuts app that comes pre-installed on all iOS devices.
