Voice Commands for the iPhone

Did you know you can ask your iPhone for the time of day? I often forget about using Voice Command on my iPhone. It's a great way to use the iPhone in a hands-free situation.  It is especially useful while driving or when you need one of your hands free to do something else.  Below is a list of commands you can use.

 

Commands for making a call:

“Call”/”dial” plus name or telephone number

Command for use with the iPod function

“Play”/”Play music”.

“Play playlist” plus playlist name.

“Play playlist gym songs”.

“Play album” plus name.

Play artist” plus artist name.

“Pause”/”Pause music”.

“Next song”.

“Previous song”.

“Shuffle”.

“Genius”/”Play more like this”/”Play more songs like this”.

“What?s playing?” (general information)

“What song is this”,”Who sings this song”, or “Who is this song by” (specific information).

Misc Magic Words on iPhone/iTouch

“What is the time?”/”What time is it?”

“Not that one”/”Wrong”/”Nope”/”No”/”Not that”.

“Cancel”/”Stop” (exit voice control) “Help”
