I have Google Chrome browser installed on my Mac. It's set as my default browser.

When I tell Siri:

Siri, open browser

It launches Safari.

I tell Siri:

Siri, open Chrome browser

It says "It doesn't look like you have an app named Chrome Browser...". But I have it installed. How to teach Siri that I have it and to launch it? I am running macOS Mojave 10.14.4.

    Is your app actually called "Chrome Browser"? I just tried it with "Open Chrome" and it worked. – Lizzan Apr 24 '19 at 11:16

Invoke Siri and say any one of the following:

  • Open Google Chrome app

  • Open Google Chrome

  • Open Chrome app

  • Open Chrome

  • Launch Google Chrome app

  • Launch Google Chrome

  • Launch Chrome app

  • Launch Chrome

If some of the above doesn't work during the first try, you can alternatively, invoke Siri and say:

  • Open app


  • Launch app

Siri will respond back by asking what app you wish to launch. You can simply ask to open Google Chrome app, Chrome app or simply Chrome. With subsequent tries, when Siri has become aware of the Google Chrome app, you will be able to launch Google Chrome with the commands mentioned in the beginning.
