Yonomi users have long enjoyed the simplicity of controlling their Routines with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant (or both!). Rather than needing to recreate all of their favorite Yonomi Routines in the voice assistant’s app, they can simply import the Routines and use the same voice commands across platforms.

Now, with the latest version of Yonomi, iOS users have the option of controlling their Yonomi Routines with another voice assistant — Siri.

Once you’ve set up Siri Shortcuts for Yonomi, you can use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or HomePod to control all of your Yonomi-compatible devices. Here are a few Yonomi Routines you can try to get more out of Siri and bring your home to life.
