How to Listen to Podcasts with Siri

One of the more common uses for your iPhone 4S is playing music. But you can also listen to podcasts. All you have to do is ask Siri to play your podcasts and it turns out you can ask to do this a couple of different ways:

  1. Press and hold the Home button.

  2. After the chime, tell Siri what podcast you want to listen to.

    To play all your podcasts, say something like, "Play my podcasts"; to play a specific podcast. say something like, "Play iTunes Celebrity Playlist podcast.”

    Say something like, "Play iTunes Celebrity Playlist podcast.”

    Siri confirms your request and starts playing the podcast.

Press the Music icon to open up the podcast window if you want to see related visuals.

What's that? You want to know if Siri will play a specific podcast episode from your collection? But of course!

Here's how:

  1. Press and hold the Home button.

  2. Tell Siri what exact podcast episode you want to listen to.

    You could tell Siri to play the "The Tell-Tale Heart" episode (based on the creepy Edgar Allan Poe tale) from Humphrey OTR’s Horror Stories podcast.

    Siri confirms your request and starts playing the podcast episode.
