Azimo Debuts Voice-activated Money Transfer

azimo siri appDigital money transfer service Azimo has launched a new version of its mobile app that will enable iOS users to transfer money across the globe using the power of their voice.

Customers will be able to transfer money through Apple's digital assistant Siri, using voice controls to activate the app, dictate how much money they want to send, and enter the recipient's name.

The voice control function is just part of the redesign for both the Android and iOS versions of the app, which have been tailor-made to embrace the latest features of both operating systems.

The Android version uses Google's material design philosophy to guide the look and feel of the app, while the Apple version follows the conventions of iOS 10 to create a bespoke experience for the iPhone and iPad.

The redesign has focused on usability and eliminating barriers for users, with real customers taking part in the testing and feedback process. Navigation has been redesigned, and the user journey through both apps has been overhauled to ensure the money transfer experience is as fast and seamless as possible.

"As a society, our relationship with mobile has changed," said Marta Krupinska, general manager of Azimo. "It's no longer an add-on to everyday life; it's a fundamental part of it. At Azimo, our obsession is to continually innovate to improve our customers' experience.

"With new features like integration with Siri and the Facebook Messenger chatbot launched recently, we want to make transferring money as easy and rewarding as possible for everyone across every device."
