So I had given up on Siri a longboard while ago. She lived mostly on an iPad 3 on my fridge and pretty much only set timers, something that mostly worked (frustratingly). Strangely the new fridge made things worse despite the iPad living in the same magnetic dock in the same place on the fridge?! Strange.
Siri was replaced by a google home mini which works a far greater percentage of the time (still not perfect) but does a whole lot more. Even the kids have taken to asking google random things with surprisingly good results.
So last night I was cooking something for dessert while watching a movie so chose to use Siri on my watch rather than google (so it would quietly let me know on my wrist which I was more likely to notice). To my surprise as I asked it to set a timer my watch, my iPhone and the old iPad mini (which lives in the lounge room) all replied confirming the request! On the upside the phone and watched managed to talk to each other (or I assume so) since only the watch went off but so did the iPad.
So has Siri gotten better? Or was this just blind luck (and a reminder to disable Siri on the iPad)?
