How to Use Google Maps or other Maps App with Siri

If you have an iPhone, Siri is a great tool for completing quick tasks without you needing to pick up your device and type. It can even give you directions to a place without you needing to type in an address. However, what if you’re not a fan of Apple Maps? So far, Siri only provides directions via Apple Maps. However, there is a little workaround that you can use to trigger your preferred map app using Siri.
1. Summon siri and ask for directions to a place “via transit.” For example, ask for directions to New York via transit.

2. Since transit directions are not available in all areas, you may get a message saying that there are no transit directions and you need to use another app.

3. Chose your preferred maps app. You’ll even get suggestions from the App Store.
