Apple is bringing Siri to the Mac and third-party apps, says WSJ

New, 4 comments

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off on Monday, and a new report from The Wall Street Journal corroborates what has been widely expected in the run-up to the show: the focus is likely to be on Siri, amid heightened interest in competing AI technology from the likes of Amazon and Google.

Apple is opening Siri up to third-party apps, the WSJ says, meaning that developers could leverage the voice assistant to help with tasks like checking in for a flight or booking an Uber. The Information reported news of this expansion last month. The WSJ also says that Siri is going to land on the Mac this year, which was previously reported by 9to5Mac.

Apple's keynote starts at 1PM ET on Monday — stay tuned to The Verge for live coverage from San Francisco.
