Siri Shortcuts - Episode 4

Shortcut Name: Logging Water With HomePod

What does it do?
Since you can trigger Shortcuts using Siri, this extends to using your HomePod to execute Shortcuts without needing to touch your iPhone at all. This simple workflow allows me to say Hey Siri, add 12 ounces of water” from anywhere in my house, and the Shortcut will log 12oz of water in HealthKit. If you want multiple values for quantity, you will need to setup a Shortcut for each quantity since you cannot currently have Siri prompt you within a Shortcut. This syncs with WaterMinder as well via HealthKit, which is cool!

How does it work?

  1. Log a health sample type of water” and amount of 12oz.
  2. Outputs completion message of your choice.
    make sure you setup the Siri phrase for this one if you want to trigger it with your HomePod
