Introducing App Intents
App Intents is a new Swift-only framework designed to make it faster and easier to build great actions that people can access with Siri, Spotlight, and Shortcuts.
Help users quickly accomplish tasks related to your app by voice or tap. With no user setup required, App Shortcuts are available as soon as your app is installed in iOS, iPadOS, or watchOS* and can be run from the Shortcuts app, Spotlight, and Siri. With support for parameters and synonyms, App Shortcuts let people interact with your app through Siri more naturally.
Shortcuts in Spotlight
By adopting App Shortcuts, your shortcuts will be automatically surfaced in Spotlight when people search for your app or your app is suggested by Siri. People can search for their custom shortcuts too.
The Shortcuts app lets people create custom shortcuts with multiple steps from their favorite apps. App Intents makes it easier than ever to expose actions that can be paired with actions from other apps, with information passing between apps. And now you can provide actions for querying data in your app, enabling powerful new use cases.
People control HomePod with their voice to conveniently access iOS and iPadOS apps that support App Shortcuts* and SiriKit Music, Messaging, VoIP calling, Lists, and Notes.
Integrate your music streaming service
With SiriKit Media Intents on HomePod, streaming music services can integrate directly with HomePod to deliver a seamless playback experience. People can simply ask Siri to access music and playlists from your service and play them on one or multiple HomePod speakers throughout the home.
