The voice-controlled standing desk will soon be a thing you can buy
Is this what the world has been waiting for?
You can use Apple's assistant to start calls or send messages through the service. It'll surely be a welcome update for Google Voice users who have an iPhone or iPad, particularly since Siri can learn your calling and messaging preferences, but it leaves the service in a strange place on the voice

IPhone: PayPal can send money with Siri
" Siri, send 100 euros to my daughter ": send money to someone with a simple voice command is now possible with PayPal, on iPhone.
If you have an iPhone, and have applied the iOS 10 update, you can now send money to your loved ones with a simple voice command. Only condition: have installed the PayPal application, and of course, have an account on the global online payment system of reference, which attracted more than 7 million customers in France.
We have tested for you this new feature, and have been very pleasantly surprised by the simplicity with which the transaction can be performed.Sending money via Paypal is easy as with Siri
First, you ask Siri to send some money to someone. For this test - as Siri knows your family members if you taught him who your spouse is, who your parents are, or your children, brothers and sisters - I wanted to send 10 euros to my wife.
At once, Siri asks if we want to use PayPal to make this transfer of money, proof that it is well pre-programmed for this new use. You validate (which will have to be done each time, obviously), and at that moment, Siri asks you to allow PayPal to communicate with Apple certain information, so that the transfer of money can be done thanks to the order Siri voice. This request, for once, is unique.
Once the information exchanged with Apple, which takes two seconds, Siri simply asks you to validate the transaction that appears clearly on the screen, with, the amount to be transferred, and the origin of funds, your PayPal balance, or your credit card.Siri also allows you to claim money with PayPal on iPhone
The voice command of PayPal, thanks to Siri, not only allows you to send money, but also, to claim. Curiously, when asked to claim 10,000 euros to a family, the order does not pass, it is converted into a request for ... 0 euros. On the other hand, a request of 1000 euros, it is correctly treated.
In itself, this function does not save a lot of time, but it allows to send money from his smartphone while driving for example, without having to search the application on his screen, open it, enter a email address or choose a recipient from the list, then enter the amount, etc.
No risk that a smart guy sends money without your knowledge, giving an order to Siri on your locked iPhone: TouchID is required to validate the transaction, in this case.
