ICICI Bank, India’s largest private sector bank by consolidated assets, announced the launch of India’s first voice-based international remittance service to enable non-resident Indians (NRIs) to send money to any bank in India.
With this new feature in the ICICI Bank’s Money2India app, an NRI customer can instantly initiate a remittance to his/her existing payees in India with just a simple voice command to Apple’s virtual voice assistant, Siri, on his/her Apple iPhone / iPad.
The customer needs to simply speak out the ‘nickname’ of the registered payee in the Money2India (M2I) app to whom he/she wants to send the money to and the amount to be sent.
Vijay Chandok, Executive Director, ICICI Bank, said, “The integration of our Money2India remittance app with Apple’s Siri is an outcome of this vision. Here, we are offering our NRI customers a unique combination of speed and an enriched experience of executing a transaction by just a voice command.”
