Requirements

Installing Voice Control commands on iOS · iPadOS · visionOS

While Apple’s mobile operating systems currently do not support the Open URL action used in the voice commands files provided on this website, you can still create and use customized Omni Automation voice commands for iPhones and iPads!

To create your voice commands, we’ll use specialized Shorcuts workflows that you can “tap-to-install” from the various example pages. Simply follow these steps or view the illustrated instructions here:

  1. First, install an Omni Automation shortcut from one of the provided links. (below)
  2. Next, in the mobile Settings app, tap AccessibilityVoice ControlCustomize CommandsCustomCreate New Command… and in the forthcoming New Command interface select the installed shortcut as the value for the “Action” parameter.
  3. Enter one of the command phrases from the example’s documentation page (above) for the value of the “Phrase” property, and…
  4. Finally, set the value of the “Application” parameter to either “Any” for global access or choose the Omni app to target from the provided list of installed applications.

You can then activate Voice Control and use your voice command to trigger the shortcut to run the Omni Automation script!

Installing Siri commands on iOS · iPadOS · visionOS

To use this voice command with Siri, simply install the provided Shortcuts workflow. To trigger the command, summon Siri and say:

“Hey Siri, [Name of installed Shortcuts workflow]”

NOTE: After installation of the shortcut, you can rename it to whatever phrase fits your needs.
