MacOS High Sierra

Siri is Apple’s personal digital assistant available for iOS devices and Mac computers. Initially, Siri was designed to answer to your voice commands, but Apple added the ability to Type something to Siri for getting answers last year. So, Siri can also answer to your text commands. By default, this feature is disabled and you need to enable it manually if you want to use Siri with text commands in place of voice commands.
