Online payments service PayPal has enabled Siri support in the latest version of their iOS app. Users of the payments service can now instruct Apple’s virtual personal assistant to both send and request money. The feature is currently available in 30 countries, including the U.S. and UK.
With so many P2P transactions happening during such a busy season, we’re excited to give our users an early holiday present: starting November 10, Siri will be integrated with PayPal. For iPhone and iPad users running iOS 10, making a payment has never been easier – PayPal users can now send and request money via a voice command with Siri. Simply say, “Hey Siri, send Bill $50 using PayPal.” Voila! One less thing to check off the to-do list this holiday season.
Using voice prompts, PayPal says users can now easily pay friends and business associates, share bills, split restaurant tabs, and more.
The new feature is available in 30 countries, and in a variety of languages, including: Australia, Austria, Belgium (French and Dutch), Brazil, Canada (English and French), China, Denmark, Finland (Finnish), France, Germany, Hong Kong (Cantonese), India, Israel (Hebrew), Italy, Japan, Malaysia (Malay), Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Saudi Arabia (Arabic), Singapore (English), Spain, Sweden, Switzerland (French, German, and Italian), Thailand, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates (Arabic) and United States.
Apple officially opened the Siri APIs up to third-party developers with the release of iOS 10 earlier this year.
The PayPal app is free, and is available in the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. [GET IT HERE]
