How To Dictate Emoticons to Your iPhone
Siri might be a natrul language assistant and has made great strides in becoming more reliable yet it's none too obvious how to dictate emotions for your messages. I'd always tried saying "smiley face" or "sad face" and siri obliged writing those words instead of the emoticons. So what commands can you use for dictating emoticons? It's actually easier to dictate them than switching to the number keyboard.
Just say “smiley,” “winky,” or “frowny,” for :-) , ;-) , or :-( .
