I recently started using Todoist as the primary reminder/task management app on my iPhone. However, one feature I miss from Apple's native Reminders app is being able to create reminders using Siri commands. (ie: "Remind me to buy groceries tomorrow")

Is it possible to create Todoist reminders using Siri? Or is Siri only able to interact with Apple's native Reminders app?

For now this feature is only available for Reminders.

In iOS 11 it's possible for todo list apps to use Siri. So you need to wait for iOS 11 and for the developer of Todoist to update it's app to add support for Siri.

SiriKit gives developers the ability to integrate Siri into their apps, and with iOS 11 it expands to support more categories, including to-do lists, notes and reminders; banking for account transfers and balances; and apps that display QR codes.

As of iOS 11, it is now possible to create and view Todoist tasks with Siri.


Using Siri with Todoist

Add tasks using Siri

To add tasks using Siri, simply call up Siri and use natural language to add tasks. You can use a few types of sentences to ensure that Siri understands what you want to do:

  • Add [task name] in Todoist
  • Add a task named [task name] in Todoist
  • Remind me to [task name] in Todoist

You can also add a due date and time and/or a project to any task using voice commands:

  • Add [task name] [due date and time] in Todoist
  • Add [task name] to my [project name] list in Todoist

...

View tasks using Siri

Easily ask Siri to pull up a list of tasks by date or project, or both. Here are a few examples of voice commands you can use:

  • Show me all the tasks for today in Todoist
  • Show me all the tasks for the next 7 days in Todoist
  • Show me all the tasks for today between 10am and 12am in Todoist
  • Show me the shopping list in Todoist
