Siri unlocks a new dimension of functionality in iOS 10, allowing third-party apps to integrate inline into the Siri voice assistant experience. Any developer integration expands utility of Siri dramatically but it’s important to note the limitations of the system Apple announced.

But the even bigger issue is that all purchases from any Apple ID in the family go to a single credit card of the admin (or parent) of the group.
