Siri for developers

Siri is the world’s most popular intelligent assistant.

Siri open on macOS, iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS.


Apps adopt SiriKit by building an extension that communicates with Siri, even when your app isn’t running. The extension registers with specific domains and intents that it can handle. Siri handles all of the interaction, including the voice and natural language recognition, and works with your extension to get information and handle requests.
