RBC Mobile for iOS has gained a new feature today, expanding its capabilities with Siri to let the virtual assistant pay bills for you.
All you have to do is tell Siri something like “Pay my RBC Avion bill”, and the assistant will ask “how much?”, then you respond with an amount and confirm when you want it to take place. Siri will confirm the payment, which users then validate with Touch ID.
“By offering bill payments through Siri and P2P transfers through iMessage, we’re providing more convenient solutions to support our client’s payment needs,” said Sean Amato-Gauci, executive vice-president, Cards, Payments and Banking, RBC, in a press release.
“Our clients are avid users of Interac e-Transfer payments, and embraced our launch of money transfers using Siri earlier this year. By giving clients the ability to seamlessly and conveniently bank using voice commands, we’re delivering simple and innovative solutions.”
Back in March, RBC Mobile was updated to allow iOS users to send Interac e-Transfers with Siri. Last month, J.D. Power named RBC’s mobile app as the top pick in their 2017 Canadian Banking App Satisfaction Study.
RBC says in the past year, they’ve seen an increase of over 20 per cent in active mobile users, claiming it’s a “clear indication that more Canadians are using the RBC Mobile app to bank whenever and wherever they want.”
