Here's a neat trick I didn't realize Siri was capable of until recently: providing business hours for both big-box retailers and smaller, local businesses on demand.
The feature was recently covered on OS X Daily.
Asking Siri for business hours, or more simply, when business opens or closes saves you from having to search for a website, or -- even worse, call a business -- for routine information.
Some examples of voice requests you can use are:
- "What time does ___ open/close?"
- "What are ____ hours?"
- "Is ___ open/closed right now?"
I've had mixed results when requesting hours for local businesses, but from what I can tell if the business has its hours listed on Yelp, Siri will find it. Otherwise Siri will let you know she couldn't find an answer, instead providing a Yelp card complete with a phone number and address.
