iMore has a terrific post outlining all of the current Siri functionality available in the Apple TV. If you’re tired of trying different commands and seeing what works and what doesn’t, it’s quite a comprehensive list. Apple has also been expanding Siri functionality for the Apple TV in software updates, growing the number of commands it understands over time.
A few favorites from the list:
- “What movie stars [actor] and [actor]?” This shows movies that have both actors.
- “What did he say?” This goes back 15 seconds and turns on closed captioning for a short period for when you can’t make out something that was said.
- “Launch [app name].” This will open any app, perfect if you have quite a few installed!
