There’s great news in store for Mac users as they can soon converse with Siri, Apple’s voice search assistant on their Mac devices. Apple reportedly announced this development through worldwide developer’s conference saying it’s planning to incorporate Siri into its all new macOS Sierra update, which will be rolled out sometime this year.
This, in turn means that voice searches will be used predominantly across Apple devices by users, which now comprises of around 25% of total search volume. Expect the number to surge further, especially with Siri now coming to Mac devices.
The development also means that Google will not remain Apple’s default search provider for searches made through Siri in the new macOS version. Moreover, the desktop search market will stand to gain more once Apple rolls out its new iOS version.
However, searches via Siri in macOS Sierra will go beyond Apple’s current Spotlight search feature for OS X version, which provides access to searches within Mac devices. Siri searches can be used not only to locate what’s inside the Mac devices, but it also across the web. Besides that, App developers will have open access to Siri on Mac devices, as it will come with the ability to talk to other apps and have them conduct the task.
