IBOS member Royal Bank of Canada’s (RBC) customers can now ask Siri to pay their bills on their iPhones and iPads.

RBC announced that its personal banking clients will be the first in Canada to be able to ask Siri to pay their bills on their iPhones and iPads through the RBC Mobile app.

RBC also launched Interac e-Transfer payments within iMessage, which means clients can send a transfer without leaving their iMessage window. Building on its market leading, 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 straightforward and innovative ways for clients to make payments and bank with their mobile devices.

Sean Amato-Gauci, EVP of Digital, Payments and Cards at RBC, commented:

“By offering bill payments through Siri and P2P transfers through iMessage, we’re providing more convenient solutions to support our client’s payment needs. 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.”

These payment solutions are the latest enhancements from the RBC innovation labs, which test new ideas by partnering with academia, fintechs and RBC clients to make banking easier. The RBC labs are actively working on a range of client solutions that will be coming to market this year.
