ICICI bank launch India’s first voice base remittance service


ICICI Bank, India's largest private sector bank by consolidated assets, today announced the launch of India's first voice-based international remittance service to enable non-resident Indians (NRIs) to send money to any bank in India.

With this new feature in the ICICI Bank's Money2India app, an NRI customer can instantly initiate a remittance to his/her existing payees in India with just a simple voice command to Apple's virtual voice assistant, Siri, on his/her Apple iPhone / iPad.

A first-of-its kind cross border remittance service by a bank in the country, it improves customer's convenience significantly as it replaces a five-step process, which was required to initiate a remittance to India earlier.
