Siri is currently available on Apple’s iPhone and iPad, and now it would appear that Apple has plans to also launch Siri on their Mac platform, a recent job listing has hinted that Siri may be headed to the Mac.
Apple are looking for a new Siri UI engineer in their latest job listing, and it gives a few hints that Apple intend to integrate Siri into Mac OS X, of course this has yet to be confirmed by Apple.
This is a broad-ranging task – we take every application that Siri interacts with, distill it down to fundamentals, and implement that application’s UI in a theme fitting with Siri. Consider it an entire miniature OS within the OS, and you get a good idea of the scope!
Of course, each of these little “snippets” corresponds to an individual application, so you will have extensive cross-functional work with many other teams. You’ll need to work with them to enable access to their data and behaviors, and wire them up to your implementations. As a result, strong API design is needed to keep communications ideal.
As soon as we get some more information on Siri for OS X we will let you guys know, Apple can obviously see Siri as a big part of the future of iOS and OS X.
