Tuesday 25 September 2018 13:45 CET | News

Westpac has announced the addition of Siri for Westpac, which is an extension of its mobile banking app for iPhone`s.

The service is designed to let customers make payments and check their account balance through Apple’s Siri. They will be able to make payments to any payee set up in their Westpac mobile app or online banking from their Westpac transaction account linked to Siri.

To authenticate payments, customers will be prompted to input their fingerprint or face ID before the money is transferred to the payee. Through Siri’s voice command, customers will also be able to check up to three Westpac account balances that are Quick Balance enabled in their mobile banking app.

Siri for Westpac follows the release of the Westpac Banking Skill for Amazon’s Alexa and Westpac for Google Assistant earlier in 2018.

The service will be available for Westpac customers with an iPhone operating iOS11, and with the latest version of the Westpac mobile banking app.
