Google Maps, Waze, and Pandora now work natively with Siri on iOS 13

Apple’s release of iOS 13 today means third-party developers can now release that can access Siri without any configuration on your end. Before iOS 13, trying to use a non-apple with Siri required setting up Siri Shortcuts. Sometimes, even that wouldn’t work.

However in iOS 13 users can finally tap into native Siri features, unlocking a number of useful possibilities. One situation in need of more hands-free options is when you’re driving and need to keep your eyes on the road. A few app makers have already released an update today that could make using Siri while driving a much better, and safer, experience.

If, for example, you want to ask Siri to give you directions from an app other than Apple Maps, you can now ask Siri to give you a direction from both Google Maps and Waze. This sounds great, but in my testing, it’s not quite as seamless as you might want.

When I used general location requests-I tries the apple Store and Seattle- Siri opened up Google Maps with directions ready. However, when tried to ask Siri to give me directions to a few different numbered addresses in Google Maps, each time, my iPhone just opened Apple Maps instead. it appears it may need some tinkering, either from Apple or the app makers to get third-party Siri support working as designed.

What doesn’t work great, though, was asking Siri to play music from Pandora. Users might be able to ask Siri to play songs on Spotify, as some users on Reddit running iOS 13 and a Spotify beta have also reported being able to do so.

We are also hoping podcast and audiobook apps will soon be updated to work with Siri, too.
