    Love this, Tks OP for sharing. It’s an app I always deleted as I had no need or no understanding of what it could do! Never had CarPlay before. Now that I have a truck on order with CarPlay, I totally want to set this up so I can wow my gang when they get in with me

    That was a no go. Ask for input doesn't allow for voice input, only text. I tried to have it dictate the response and then validate it but I couldn't get it to do what I wanted. Will keep diggin.

    Could you have "dictate text" as the input for the "ask for input" action?

    Got it.
    All right you super smart people. Is there any way to play a sound clip after the text speech?

    Anyone else notice Siri’s inflection at the end of a sentence is “off” - like her intonation up and it doesn’t sound right?

    I switched mine to an English dude. The accent felt more accurate when telling me not to fart in the truck

    I added some more stuff to the end of the greeting and stuff. I added a 1 second pause and then it speaks a random quote from a bunch of movie quotes.

    I’ve been trying to figure this out. There’s a way but I’ve not yet cracked the code. I just added random movie quotes to mine. My intention was that they be audio clips. For now it’s just spoken text like the rest of it.

    I figured it out.

    cause I’m working real hard at my actual job today

    there are probably other ways to do this. But this works for me.

    First I created a folder in my iCloud Drive on my iPhone. I called it soundclips. Then I downloaded a bunch of clips and saved them as mp3. You need to make sure you have ToolBox Pro. The free version will work for this.

    After that I added the new commands after my original spoken text.

    Use the shuffle command from Toolbox Pro. You’ll have it shuffle the files in your soundclips folder. This will enable it to play a different clip randomly each time. You’ll see how it works when you start, but you’ll hit the + in this command to select each clip that you want to shuffle. Turn on limit and limit to 1.

    Then you need the Base64 encode command. It’s under scripting/files in shortcuts. There you encode the shuffled list. You have to select the magic variable to select the Shuffled list.

    add the play sound command and you are going to play the shuffled list.

    note: I have Pause on iPhone all the way at the beginning to pause my music. Then added Play on iPhone to start it back up after the clip plays.

    me too. My wife thinks I’m crazy. But I explained that my budget for this is a little less than the other stuff.

    Anyone have MyQ garage door opener? Trying to auto open/close garage when I arrive/leave. Looks like I have to buy another $99 gadget to enable it with HomeKit.

    MyQ sucks for any kind of API integration, or at least that was the case when I checked it a couple years ago. They charged for an extra subscription if you wanted to do any third party automation. What’s the $99 gadget? Just an updated Homelink bridge?

    yeah, a homelink bridge. I was able to find a way to invoke the open/close commands via API using the same endpoints that the MyQ app is using - but it’s kinda hacky and requires constant changes as tokens change.

    Someone mentioned earlier that iOS 15.2.1 is out and it helps with CarPlay issues. I installed it this morning and can attest to this. Waze required multiple restarts after 15 was installed. Now it comes right up just fine.

    This thread is awesome. Got the greeting setup like the first 1-2 pages, but will delve into making(copying) something more complex as y'all do more legwork.

    Thanks y'all!
