Top 4 Siri shortcuts on the iPhone that are downright impressive
1. Water ejector
Say goodbye to clogged speakers with this handy shortcut called Clear Speaker. Pretty much every modern smartphone, including the iPhone, is water resistant nowadays. However, if your iPhone happens to come into contact with liquid, you can bet that your speakers are going to sound muffled for a day or two. Similar to Apple’s Water Lock feature introduced on the Apple Watch Series 2 back in 2016, the Clear Speaker shortcut will activate a unique sound that ejects water from the bottom speaker and ear piece on your iPhone.
2. Theater Mode
Tired of being interrupted by texts, notifications, and phone calls at the movie theater? The Theater Mode shortcut initiates a series of actions to silence notifications and limit power consumption on your iPhone while you’re at the movies. Also, if you need to check your phone during the movie, this shortcut automatically initiates Dark Mode and sets your display brightness down to its lowest setting.
3. Share Song.link
Sharing music with your friends can be a challenge these days since it’s hard to remember who subscribes to which music streaming service and not every song can be found on YouTube. Whether you are using Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, or Amazon Music the Song.link shortcut instantly generates a sharable URL for any song in your library that then displays a share sheet with multiple ways to listen across a variety of streaming services. This shortcut even supports services like Tidal and SoundCloud.
Wish you could watch YouTube videos offline or play audio from YouTube videos in the background without having to subscribe to YouTube Premium? The YouTube++ shortcut from developer Sethu Senthil allows iPhone users to download and store YouTube videos on their device using a couple of taps.
Users can choose from a few options onscreen to download the standalone audio and video from a YouTube video, or immediately play the audio from a video in the background. Note: This shortcut requires users to install Scriptable from the App Store to function properly.
