Surprisingly, after 862 topics and 8.6k posts I think the word Siri hasn’t come up yet! So not to offend the ‘intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator’ when he / she eventually becomes sentient, here’s a question… ( perhaps for @james?)
On Monday at WWDC, Apple announced that in iOS 10 Siri would be opened up to developers via SiriKit (SDK) albeit with restricted Siri Domain access - a core set of 6 actions developers can tap into.
Apps that provide services in specific domains can use SiriKit to make those services available from Siri on iOS. Making your services available requires creating one or more app extensions using the Intents and Intents UI frameworks. SiriKit supports services in the following domains:
- Audio or video calling
- Sending or receiving payments
- Searching photos
- Booking a ride
- Managing workouts
“Apps that offer user-to-user payment services can use intents to send and request payments.”
Interested to know if voice assisted payments are on the roadmap, and if so when?
