Siri can now read WhatsApp messages

After being able to send messages via Siri, you're now finally able to ask Siri to read WhatsApp messages as well.

Our current digital assistants do a good job at looking smart, but it doesn't take much for us to notice just how dumb they really are. Take Siri for instance; where you could ask it to send a message via WhatsApp (thanks to Apple opening up Siri dor 3rd party integration with some apps), but you couldn't ask it to read an incoming WhatsApp message. Well, that's finally sorted out...

You can now ask Siri to read WhatsApp messages aloud, just like you could for regular SMS/iMessage messages

This means you can finally use WhatsApp without touching your iPhone or even looking at the screen, which will certainly prove useful for anyone wanting to use WhatsApp while driving or while keeping their iPhone on their pockets. Sure it may not be yet adequate enough to deal with those friends that fire a never ending stream of messages instead of a single one, but it's better than nothing.
