Step 3. To simplify and make the process faster you can make the phrase longer asking to “Send an email to mom at home” if there are several email addresses with one contact. If you don’t mention “at home” at once Siri will still ask you which email to use.
Step 4. You have to mention the email subject. Just say “Plans for the evening” or something else.
Step 5. Now you can use Siri to email the text. Dictate what you want it to type. Be as clear as possible.
