Setting Timers with Siri

Setting Timers with Siri

This last week I happened across a feature in Siri that I’ve not seen mentioned anywhere else: setting timers. It’s as simple as saying something like “Set a five-minute timer” and Siri at once begins counting down.

Show my timer” will display the time remaining right within Siri, both digitally and on a horizontal scale, and “Cancel timer” will reset a running timer to its initial duration. Tapping the display takes you to the timer in the Clock app.

Since the Clock app doesn’t support multiple timers, Siri will ask if you want to change an existing timer if you try to add another while one is running. If you need multiple timers, though, or additional options for your timers, check out Timer [iOS, free (additional in-app purchases)] by App Cubby.
