Voice Shortcuts

How Voice Shortcuts Work

A voice shortcut is a short voice command that you use with Siri to create a specific new transaction in Debit & Credit. You need to create your own voice shortcuts in the app before using them.

When Voice Shortcuts Are Useful

Voice shortcuts are useful for transactions that you create frequently. Example: John loves latte, he always buys it from a particular coffee store for $4. He created a voice shortcut for that transaction and every time he tells Siri "Latte" a new expense for $4 with category "Coffee" is created in the app.

How to Create a Voice Shortcut

Tap on any transaction in the app and select "Add Voice Shortcut". To manage your existing shortcuts, open the app settings, select advanced settings and then voice shortcuts.

Voice Shortcuts on Apple Watch

Voice shortcuts can be also triggered from Apple Watch.


You need to be running version 2.8 of Debit Credit on iOS 12 or later. For Apple Watch, you need watchOS 5 or later.
