Wouldn't it be great if an app user could simply ask to use one of your app's features directly from the Siri interface? This course, An Introduction to SiriKit, will show you how to create vocal commands using the SiriKit framework. First, you'll go over what SiriKit can and cannot do along with a preview of what you will be creating in the course. Next, you get to see what Intents Extensions are and how an app handles them when communicating with SiriKit, as well as how to develop a UI that is called after Siri receives vocal instruction. Finally, you'll see how to record and store audio then transfer it to Siri for transcription. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create fully-featured voice dictation using SiriKit. Software required: Xcode 8.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include, creating voice controls for your app right from the Siri interface, customizing the Siri interface to make it a seamless experience, and using the power of Siri to turn speech into text seamlessly for your users. By the end of this course you'll know how to really wow your users with amazing voice control features. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with basic iOS and Swift or Objective C concepts.
