Any.do + Siri and Reminders

What is it?

Using any.do is even easier when you integrate with Siri and Apple Reminders! You can now add tasks just by telling Siri what you want to do. Once you activate this integration, Any.do will sync with your Apple Reminders both ways, allowing you to utilize Siri’s voice commands as well. 

Who has access?

  • Both Premium and Free users can take advantage of this feature!
  • The feature is available on iOS only. Any changes to your list will sync across all platforms.
  • Siri shortcuts are suggested based on intelligence Siri has gathered, according to your interaction with the features, over time. Newer users may not see all of Any.do’s Siri shortcuts on their device.

How does it work?

  • In order to add tasks via Siri, simply say ‘add a reminder..’ along with the task title and reminder date.
  • The task will sync to your Any.do account under the Apple Reminders list.
  • These tasks will sync their titles and reminder times back and forth from Any.do to your Apple Reminders app. 
  • Telling Siri to ‘open’/ ‘add’ to Any.do won’t work, as that command will not be recognised.
  • The app by also supports 5 Siri Shortcuts, as detailed below.
