We finally saw the long-awaited Harry Potter cast reunion last week, which did not disappoint.

It was emotional to see Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and the rest of the ensemble back together after ten years.

In the wake of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, series devotees have learned of a magical app for mobile devices.

I was unaware that Siri could be used to recite Harry Potter incantations. Actually, yes. But does it operate on Android as well? What is the answer?

Is it possible to use Harry Potter spells on an Android device?

Don't worry if you don't have an iPhone. You won't be left out because the Harry Potter spells are compatible with Android devices too.

Due to the lack of a native voice assistant on Android, many users instead turn to Google Assistant.

You can get Google Assistant for free on any Android device you possess. After installation, you may configure your device to trigger the voice function by pressing and holding the home button.

You have to say "Hey, Google" and then the spell's name when it has been set up. Then, Presto! Cast spells from Harry Potter on your Android phone.

How to cast Harry Potter spells

Which Harry Potter spells are you able to cast? You can make a long list.


The most well-known magic word is "Lumos," which, in the movies, turns on the lights. Asking Siri or Google Now for "Lumos" will activate the flashlight feature on your smartphone.

In some cases, "Lumos Maximus" may be required. After that, you may say "Nox" to turn off the flashlight.

Avada Kedavra

Avada Kedavra," another one of the three unforgivable curses, has also been found by social media users.

Saying this to your phone will have it turn off the screen's brightness and activate aeroplane mode, thereby rendering it useless.

Wingardium Leviosa

Want to take a trip? Why not cast a Harry Potter spell and get a plane ticket?

Spelling out the words "Wingardium Leviosa," the name of a charm used to give inanimate things the ability to fly, will initiate a search for a flight leaving your current location.

Accio Facebook

Use the phrase "Accio," a movie-style summoning charm, to launch your desired app.

Any app name, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat, can be prefaced with "Accio."


Phone spells have been around for a while. It's not a new function, but many people are now learning about phone magic because of the Harry Potter reunion.

Many people have used their voice-activated devices for years without realizing they could perform Harry Potter-style spells.

There is evidence of this functionality as far back as 2016, but it is now gaining traction online.
