We know how to take screenshots to share something with other people, usually via instant messaging. It’s comfortable up to a point, because to do something simple you end up jumping between several applications. But iOS hides a way to share screenshots that couldn’t be easier.

“Siri, share this”

You don’t even have to memorize button combinations on the iPhone. Just ask Siri to share a screenshot with someone in your contact list. I’ve verified that there are (at least) two ways to do this:

“Hey Siri, share this with Pedro Aznar” (In this case, Siri will tell you that you can only share screenshots before doing so) “Hey Siri, share a screenshot with Pedro Aznar”

After you give either of these two commands, Siri will take a screenshot and offer to send it to the contact you gave it. If said contact has more than one contact form, you can choose one, but always in the iMessage service:

As you can see, you can add a comment attached to the image capture. If you don’t want to add anything, just say “Yes” to Siri when she asks if you want to send it. The screenshot will be saved in the iPhone Camera Roll.

If you share a lot of screenshots, that’s fun, because it’s done with a lot fewer steps than if you were doing it with your fingers. Be careful if you do this with a nearby HomePod, because if it’s the speaker that picks up the command, it will tell you that it can’t do it.
