Hey I'm having a problem with if siri doesn't detect my input i can't reengage her without clicking home on my phone and trying over. If i hold down the talk button again it won't click over to her without me leaving siri. I also can't figure out how to get back to whatever I was doing, say streaming pandora, prior to sending a text through siri. Do I really have to click the home button on the phone when I'm using a handsfree device? HELP!!
I explored my problem and learned more. It seems to be isolated to when I am listening to music. I've tried using the "iPod" standard media player as well as Pandora and have the same experience. If you are listening to music and then try to do anything else with Siri (that leave Siri open i.e. ask for weather, use text messaging, do appointments, etc), it will not automatically return to the music. It will also at some point disable your ability to use siri at all (i.e. when you hold down the talk button it will no longer interact with Siri...it will just do nothing). The only way to return the functionality is to manually hit the Apple home button to exit out of Siri. This will resume the music and give you the ability to reengage Siri. Let me know if this holds true to the rest of you out there or if I'm an isolated incident. Thanks!
After reading some of the other posts and trying out some more tweaks, the best way to handle the issues I've been having with the music and siri handoff is: after you get held up, hold down the talk button to try to talk to siri. This will show the microphone on the phone engaged but nothing will happen through the phone or the ERA. Then immediately hold down the talk button again. This will kick you out of siri and bring the music back on. While it's annoying and lengthy, at least it prevents you from having to fish the phone out of your pocket or the holster it's in.
I agree. We should be able to change it so that the short click, which is easier to do, would trigger Siri and the longer click would be for battery time.
Also, what's with having to set up a list of names for voice announcements? The information is coming from the iPhone anyhow. The name is displayed on the screen. Why can't it just speak the name from the screen? There needs to be better integration between the Jawbone and the iPhone.
Great thread. Just starting to play around with ERA and Siri. I agree that Jawbone needs to get a fix so that Siri has its own system.
Haven't heard any static. So everytime I want to ask a question I have to re-establish contact with Siri? I can't just click somewhere to continue? If so, this is not good.
in my experience, Siri works fine for me and ERA once you turn off voice announcements. All you do it hold the button, hear a quick click, then the beep from siri. The only time you have to repeat this is if your convo has ended with siri, if siri is asking you a question, you just answer without pressing button. Im sure jawbone is updating the firmware to fully support siri and voice announcements.
Please see this topic for additional problems with era and siri.
