How to Search Your Email Using Siri

How to Search Your Email Using Siri

Searching through your email on your iOS device can be a pain in the you know what. The search bar in the Mail app works well enough, but what if there was a way you could search by just using your spoken voice? If you have a Siri compatible device, there is a way.

Method 1: If you’re looking for an email from a particular time period, say a specific day or month, just say something like “Show me emails from January 2013 from Glenn”, Siri will diligently search, and as show below left, she will display all emails form the time period from Glenn.

Method 2: If you want to search all of your emails, just bring up Siri and say something like: “Search emails for review.” Siri will search and then display all emails containing the word “review,” as seen above right.

Play with phrasing for your search requests, as Siri responds better to certain wording and phrases.
