Does the ios 12 shortcuts feature open up siri to possibly control some aspects of Simple Control?
It’s too early to say, but it looks like at least some level of Siri-controllability will be possible. We’re optimistic. At the very least, basic Activity launching looks guaranteed as it uses what we already added last year to support iOS Search. You can go in right now and type say “TiVo” into your iOS Search and see those Activities you have for TiVo. That level of information will be actionable via Siri. Exactly what else is available and what granularity is possible such as “set volume 50 in the Living Room” like you can with Alexa is unclear at this time.
This sounds promising, hope you guys can start digging into the beta releases to hit the ground running once the new versions reach our devices!
