Sending money is now as easy as saying “Hey Siri, send Pat $20“, as Royal Bank of Canada launches money transfers with Siri for its personal banking clients. This innovative money transfer solution is now available through an update to the RBC Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Building on its market leading, free person-to-person money transfer services for chequing account clients launched last year, RBC continues to develop simple and innovative ways for clients to make payments and bank with their mobile devices.
Using Siri to send money with RBC
Sending money with RBC is really as simple as it sounds. Once you give the voice command, the Siri feature will confirm the name from your payee list and the RBC Mobile app automatically debits your chequing account and sends the payment. The payment is secure and protected by TouchID.
This payment solution is the latest enhancement from the RBC innovation labs, which test new ideas by partnering with academia, fintechs and RBC clients to make banking easier. The RBC labs are actively working on a range of client solutions that will be coming to market this year.
“We are completely rethinking how we can deliver services, products and advice to our clients as we continue to focus on our strategy of being a digitally enabled relationship bank,” said Amato-Gauci. “We’re not only listening to our clients, we’re asking them to guide what we build and when. Our innovation labs allow us to work directly with our clients and provide us an opportunity to test and learn with consumer feedback.”
The RBC Mobile app is available for free download from the App Store on iPhone and iPad or at www.AppStore.com.
