The new RBC Mobile app further strengthens RBC’s market leading position in the payments and mobile space, as it is the first Canadian bank to launch Interac e-Transfer using Siri.
Sending money is now as easy as saying “Hey Siri, send Pat $20”, as IBOS member RBC launches money transfers with Siri for its personal banking clients. This innovative money transfer solution is now available through an update to the RBC Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Building on its market leading, free person-to-person money transfer services for chequing account clients launched last year, RBC continues to develop simple and innovative ways for clients to make payments and bank with their mobile devices.
Sean Amato-Gauci, Executive Vice-President of Digital, Payments and Cards at RBC, commented:
“It’s our goal to continue to be part of the everyday mobile experiences of our clients by adding more convenient and seamless ways to send money and bank with RBC. Building on the explosive growth of our free person-to-person payments products, we’re excited to provide the ability for our clients to now send free money transfers from their chequing accounts using Siri.”
This payment solution is the latest enhancement from the RBC innovation labs, which test new ideas by partnering with academia, fintechs and RBC clients to make banking easier.
