When referring to Siri, simply use the name “Siri”. Do not refer to Siri with pronouns such as “she,” “him,” or “her.” Depending on language support, Siri may offer a male or female voice, or both.
For example: Once you add a shortcut, you can run it anytime by asking Siri.
When referring to Siri Shortcuts in English, always typeset both words with a capital S and make sure that “Shortcuts” is plural.

Running a Shortcut
When referring to individual shortcuts (not the Shortcuts feature or the Shortcuts app), use lower case.
For example: Run a shortcut by asking Siri or tapping a suggestion on the lock screen.
Adding a Shortcut
When referring to adding a shortcut to Siri, avoid phrases like “add voice shortcuts,” “make a voice command,” “create a voice prompt,” or any other variation. Instead, use one of the following phrases (localized as appropriate).
- Add to Siri.
- Add a shortcut to Siri to run with your voice.
- Add a shortcut to Siri to run anytime by asking Siri.
Use “Hey Siri” as part of an example request. The phrase should not be a headline or appear on its own for any other reason.
