Ask Siri To Play the News

A new feature of Siri in iOS 11.2.5 is the ability to listen to short news podcasts with a simple command. You can use "play" or "tell" to trigger these podcasts even if you don't subscribe to them. You can also get business and sports news. This feature should come to the Mac soon, and is most likely being added now in preparation for the release of the HomePod.

    Mike: Are you at iOS 11.2.5? USA? Saying “play” or “tell” instead of “read” or something else?

    This is a great tip, Gary. Thanks for the work you do.

    This is something I have been waiting for, a word to Siri and the news is read while I drive on!
