Hey Siri, where’s the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot?

Siri near wifi hotspot

Have you ever found yourself looking for a public Wi-Fi hotspot? Maybe you were nearing your monthly wireless data cap, or were on a laptop or some other non-cellular device.

How’d you go about finding it? Sure there are websites you can look at, and apps that you can download. But if you’re looking for an easier way to do this, you can just ask Siri…

In addition to her many other talents, Apple’s digital assistant has the ability to locate Wi-Fi hotspots. She can find nearby signals or search for them in a specific city and state.

To do this, all you have to do is activate Siri and ask her one of the following questions:

  • “Where’s the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot?”
  • “Where are Wi-Fi hotspots in City name, State name?”

Sure, this isn’t anything groundbreaking. And many of you were probably already aware of this feature. But for those that weren’t, this might prove extremely useful when out and about.
