UK challenger bank Starling has been experimenting with #Google Home, integrating its API with the smart speaker to enable users to carry out balance queries and payments through voice commands.
The bank has posted a video demonstrating the integration on YouTube, although, with #Google Home not even available in the UK yet, customers will have to wait to try the feature themselves.
Although currently overshadowed by text-based chatbots, the use of smart voice-based assistants is gaining interest in the financial services world.
Capital One and TD Ameritrade have both tapped into Amazon's #Google Home rival Alexa, while Apple's Siri can be used by Monzo and N26 customers.
