New capabilities also include the launch of seamless P2P transfers within iMessage
The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) just announced that its personal banking clients are now the first in Canada who can ask Siri to pay their bills on iPhone and iPad using RBC Mobile app.
RBC has also launched seamless Interac e-Transfer® payments within iMessage, which means clients can send a transfer without leaving their iMessage window. Building on its free person-to-person (P2P) money transfer services for chequing account clients launched last year, and money transfers with Siri earlier this year, RBC continues to develop innovative ways for clients to make payments and bank with their mobile devices.
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. “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.
