MacOS Sierra: Here are 10 things you can ask Siri to do for you

MacOS Sierra marks the first time Apple brings its virtual assistant, Siri to Mac. Basically, it is the same Siri that we have known to love on iOS. But Siri on Mac has her own stuff that is worth your attention. If you have just installed MacOS Sierra and you are not sure about how you should be using Siri on your Mac, we believe that we can help you out.

Before we begin, you need to know how to access Siri on your Mac, all you have to do is to click the “Siri” icon in the menu bar or the Dock. Besides, you can invoke Siri by holding down Command and Space keys. That’s it Siri is now enabled on your Mac, let’s proceed with what you should be using her for.

  1. Look for files

If you are having a hard time organizing everything on your Mac in neat, Siri is here to help. You now can ask Siri to show you files from last week, files that contain a phrase or a file that is linked with a certain app on your Mac. Besides, you can narrow down the search by asking follow-up questions.


The best part is that you can add your search results to the Notification Center as a widget by clicking the “+” icon, so you can access them later.

  1. Search Web


Siri on Mac allows you to search for anything online by simply saying “Search the web for X” and Siri will display search results in the popup. This is the same functionality that we have already seen on iOS, but for Mac owners, it is still a biggie.

  1. Post to Social Media


You now can ask Siri to post your messages to some popular social networks like Facebook or Twitter. If your Facebook account is now connected in MacOS Sierre, you simply tell Siri “Post to Facebook” followed by your message.

  1. Open apps

Normally, if you want to open an app in MacOS Sierra, you can use Spotlight. However, for some Mac owners,  that requires too much work and they want something much simpler. That’s where Siri comes to the rescue. You now can use Siri to open any app for you.

  1. Open Web

This could be one of the most useful things you can do with Siri. You simply say “Open”. The coolest part is that Siri can understand any website address and open it in your browser. Opening website this way is much more convenient than going to browser and typing the address.

  1. Play Music


On iPhone, you can ask Siri to play a song or an album. Now you can do the same thing on Mac. You can ask Siri to open any song or album and she will.

  1. Read emails

Tired of going through all your unread emails? You now can ask Siri to look for all your unread mails, which saves a lot of time. To do this, you simply ask Siri” What are my unread emails” and she will show you your inbox. Once you are in, just ask her “Read that email” and she will.

  1. Set a reminder


In MacOS Sierra, you can easily ask Siri to set a reminder. To do this, simply ask her “Remind me about … in … minutes”.

  1. Send messages

With Siri, you can send an iMessage to your contact by simply saying “Message + Contact + meet me at 10am”. Cool, isn’t it?

  1. Control Settings

With Siri, you can use your voice to control your computer like enabling Do Not Disturb mode or turning off Bluetooth. All you have to do is to give her a command.

MacOS Sierra comes with a lot of features that enhance your experience. If you are using a Mac, there is no reason not to update to MacOS Sierra.
