Use Harry Potter Spells on Your iPhone and Android Device to Turn On/Off Flashlight - Simply Works Like a Charm!
First of all, we need to clarify what these magical spells denote and then proceed towards the tutorial. In Harry Potter, the spell 'Lumos' is a wand-lighting charm that characters used in various parts. Similarly, the spell 'Nox' is used to extinguish the light from the wand. What may surprise you is the fact that your iPhone and Android devices can perform actions based on these spells. The spells will basically turn on and off the flashlight using Siri. Moreover, we also have a bonus charm to launch your apps, so do stick around. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions carefully below to use Harry Potter spells with your iPhone and Android devices.
- To turn the flashlight on, bring up the virtual assistant and say "Lumos"
- To turn the flashlight off, bring up the virtual assistant and say "Nox"
On your iPhone, you can initiate the virtual assistant by saying "Hey, Siri" and Android devices can bring up the Google Assistant by saying "Hey, Google." Make sure that you have enabled the assistants to always listen to you. This is a pretty neat trick that Harry Potter fans would be delighted to learn. Moreover, it is pretty handy as well since you do not have to unlock your smartphone and bring down the Control Center to use the flashlight.
As a bonus, you can also use the Harry Potter spell "Accio" to summon any app. Simply bring up Siri and say "Accio" followed by the name of the app. It really does work like a charm. The best part about the whole process is that you do not have to download any third-party app to make it happen.
