You are probably familiar with Siri's joke-telling prowess. Who could forget the one when you ask her if she has a boyfriend? Siri replies, "No, but drones are always trying to pick me up." Hilarious.

But Siri is much more than just a comedic companion. The virtual assistant has many helpful tricks up her sleeve that you probably don't know.

That's why we're going to tell you about five Siri tricks that you never knew existed. Stick around until the end and we'll throw in a bonus trick.

1. Choose your favorite search engine

Google is the most popular search engine in the world. However, if Google isn't showing you enough information on your favorite band Van Halen, ask Siri to search a different source.

First, you'll need to activate Siri by holding down the home button or, if you enabled it, say "Hey Siri" out loud while your iPhone is plugged into its charger.

You can select other search engines like Bing or Yahoo.

Just say, "Search Bing" and Siri will ask, "What would you like to search for?" Say "Van Halen" and Siri will produce a number of results found on the web.
