Add to home screen instead of Siri

You cannot make Alice start immediately and by default instead of Siri, since the Yandex voice assistant is launched by default by opening a browser. Until it is open, the assistant will not respond.

To make it easier to work with this assistant on iPhone, you need to add the Yandex widget to the home screen:

  1. Swipe all the home screen pages with app icons to the right to reach the widget page.
  2. Scroll down this page and click 'Edit'.
  3. A list of widgets already installed and available for adding will open.
  4. Select 'Yandex: Today' (or 'Yandex: Today') and click the plus sign in front of it.
  5. By clicking on the list icon in front of the browser, drag it to the top of the list of already installed widgets.
  6. Now, to launch Yandex Assistant, it is enough to unlock the phone and launch the Yandex browser on the main screen.

You can activate Alice by pressing the microphone icon (or the purple button of the voice assistant) in the Yandex search engine or by voice.

To enable voice activation of the assistant, enable the 'voice activation' function in the Yandex browser settings. There should be a 'check mark' in front of it.

When this function is active and the browser is open, the assistant will be launched in response to the following commands:

  • 'Hi Alisa!';
  • 'Listen, Alice.'
