With the arrival of macOS Sierra, now users can use a mac Siri piecework in their daily activities, providing better working fluid and user experience.
If you've used Siri on your iPhone or iPad before, now you'll notice that the voice assistant is also available in macOS Sierra. However, unlike your iPhone, you have the ability to invoke Siri on your Mac saying "Hey, Siri", for this you have to click on the icon Siri in the menu bar or dock.
Another way to "call" Siri is using a keyboard shortcut. Undoubtedly, this is the preferred way for many users to activate the wizard more quickly and efficiently than if it did from the mouse or trackpad to click on the icon Siri.
Use a keyboard shortcut to interact with Siri
If you want to use a keyboard shortcut to activate Siri, go to System Preferences -> Siri and from there, click the drop-down menu keyboard shortcut and select your preferred shortcut. By default, macOS offers three different shortcuts to call Siri:
- Maintain "Command" + space - Keep "option" + space - "Function" + space
You also have the ability to create your own shortcut and to do so, you must choose the option to customize. Once selected, you must press the keys you want to set as a keyboard shortcut.
