Siri customers can now send and receive payments through PayPal in almost 30 countries. This update for iOS clients was very much expected. It will be available for UK, US, and Australia. But the complete list of the countries and languages is as follows
Belgium (French and Dutch)
Canada (English and French)
Hong Kong (Cantonese)
Saudi Arabia (Arabic)
Switzerland ( Italian, French, and German)
United Arab Emirates
This is an extremely easy feature for Siri customers to use. After installing the update, the user is required to open up Siri and say something as such “Send $100 to Nick using PayPal”, or “Request $20 from Juan via PayPal for the burger last night”.
But users will have to first confirm their identity before sending or requesting a payment. This is to prevent any imposters from playing with a user’s account for money. But this is quick and will take only seconds by using Touch ID.
This feature is easy and works perfectly for payment purposes. But the user’s should be careful while sending or requesting payments. The person whom users want to send or request payment must have an email address or phone number linked to a PayPal account and they must be one of the phone’s contacts.
