Santander App Adds to Voice Control Functionality

Santander’s SmartBank app now includes increased voice control features; tasks include checking account balances, reporting stolen cards, tracking spending and transferring money; the functionality builds on Santander’s original implementation of voice control last year; Ed Metzger, head of technology innovation, stated: “The worlds of technology and banking continue to evolve at pace, working hand in hand to deliver a friction-free user experience. We are excited to be the first UK high street bank to enable customers to make payments using just their voice, offering them another channel of choice in how they wish to bank.”  Source
