Siri can now read out your WhatsApp messages when asked

7

Last year, WhatsApp for iOS received partial integration with Siri, allowing users to send messages and make calls from the lock screen with a simple voice command. A new update for the iOS version of the popular messaging app is rolling out now, expanding its with the AI assistant by allowing it to read out WhatsApp texts when asked.

Those running iOS 10.3 and the latest version of the WhatsApp (2.17.2) can use the new feature by saying, “Hey Siri, read my last WhatsApp message.” This works only with unread messages, however, and can't be done with already seen and/or responded to texts.

The latest WhatsApp update also includes a bunch of other tweaks and improvements that affect mainly the "Calls", "Group Info", and "Contact Info" screens. As far as the "My Updates" section goes, you can now set up multiple statuses, which can be forwarded or revoked, MacRumors reports.

The Android version of WhatsApp doesn't currently offer a comparable feature, but given how wide-spread Google Assistant is becoming, we wouldn't be too surprised if receives a similar treatment in the coming months.
