A Possible Reason Siri Is Not In 3rd Party Apps

Samuel Iglesias:

The second half of Siri integration, Semantics, is the tricky part: something that most iOS developers have never dealt with. Semantics will attempt to capture the various ways a user can ask for something, and, more importantly, the ways Siri, in turn, can ask for more information should that be required. This means that developers will need to imagine and provide “hints” about the numerous ways a user can ask for something. Sure, machine learning can cover some of that, but at this early stage Siri will need human supervision to work seamlessly.

I suspect this is a main reason we haven’t seen Siri integrated outside of Apple’s own apps.
