With iOS 10, Apple has now opened to Siri to 3rd party apps. Just like Microsoft’s Cortana implementation on Windows 10, Apple now allows developers to take advantage of Siri’s speech capabilities. Today, LinkedIn released a new update for their app on iOS which takes advantage of this feature. You can now say “Hey Siri, send Pradeep Viswanathan a message in LinkedIn” to send a direct message to a contact. If you can’t remember the person’s full name, Siri can help. For example, say “Hey Siri, I want to send Pradeep a LinkedIn message,” and Siri will list all the Pradeeps you’re connected to in that network, and ask you to whom you want to message.
