Amazon adds Capital One banking support to Echo and other Alexa-powered devices
March 12, 2016 - Uncategorized
Amazon’s always-on, ready-to-respond Echo is already incredibly useful, and it’s all thanks to Alexa’s voice-recognition prowess. This part-connected home hub, part-Siri-esque assistant can feed you information about the weather, play music on demand, and launch some of your smart appliances. But do you really want it to tell you when your credit card bill is due?
On Friday, Capital One launched a new “skill” for Alexa-powered devices that allows bank account and credit card holders to get account info from their Amazon hardware. Using the Echo, the Fire TV, or Echo Dot, customers can ask Alexa for their account balance and recent transactions, pay their bills, and transfer funds, all through voice commands.
