Reading new messages on Circuit using Siri on your iOS device

Last updated:

With iOS 10 and SiriKit, you can listen to new messages on Circuit using Siri, so you are able to keep in touch with your team in hands-busy situations.

To read new messages, bring up Siri on your iOS device.


To bring up Siri on your iOS device: press and hold the Home Button or just say Hey Siri, if you have enabled the "Hey Siri" feature on your device.


Asking Siri, what can you do? will get Siri to show you examples of all the commands you can use with Siri including the Circuit ones.

  1. To read new messages from a specific person using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Read my unread Circuit messages from [Person name].
  2. To read all unread messages using Siri:
    1. Bring up Siri on your device.
    2. Say: Read all my unread Circuit messages.

    Reading messages is done per thread. So Siri will treat each thread as a separete conversation. This will allow you to reply to a specific thread.


You can use the first name and, optionally, the last name of a person in your voice commands.


Siri cannot know the name of every person or conversation in Circuit. Circuit makes available to Siri a list of up to 100 names that Siri can use to interact with your Circuit App. These names come from the list of your favorites (people or conversations). If there are less than 100 favorites, the rest of the list is filled in with your most recent direct conversations.
