Barclays has announced that it is bringing a new feature to its mobile app on the iPhone in the UK, the ability to make payments using Apple Siri.
The Barclays mobile banking application now lets you make payments using voice control and Siri.
Barclays is set to become the first UK high street bank to launch payments using Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri, enabling customers to make payments using their voice. Available now within the Barclays Mobile Banking (BMB) app.
The Siri integration means BMB customers won’t need to open the app to pay existing payees or mobile contacts, they can simply ask Siri such as “Pay John £15 with Barclays”. Payments are authenticated by the user with Apple’s TouchID fingerprint recognition ensuring maximum security without the need to remember their passcode.
