Throughout the years, several third-party software extensions have been developed to extend Siri with new functions or add additional functions to existing ones.

 She Is Your Virtual Assistant

As a virtual assistant, Siri obtains relevant information about the environment to provide its users with the context necessary to make quick decisions, like setting timers and alarms or getting directions.

However, despite being part of the operating system powering hundreds of millions of Apple devices, Siri has not achieved a great deal in terms of reaching mainstream adoption, despite various attempts by Apple to diversify its services.

 In Conclusion

One of Siri’s challenges is understanding natural language since orientated technologies like natural language understanding have been comparatively rare in voice assistant software.

Nonetheless, with the launch of the latest iteration of Apple’s iOS 11 “iCamera” (the image and video sharing service running on the new iOS), the progress in voice assistant software has been rapid.

Apple’s latest move to introduce a virtual assistant system built into the camera has passed with wide acceptance, raising several new questions about its usefulness and role with Apple’s line of devices.
