Amazon Alexa Will Soon Let You Pay Bills With Your Voice

Posted on October 28, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Amazon with 3 Comments

Amazon is soon going to launch a brand new feature that will allow users to use Alexa to pay their bills. Amazon today previewed the new feature at a conference, where the company demoed the new feature.

The new feature will allow users to simply use Alexa to not only pay their utility bills but even get information about their bills.

Amazon says the new feature will allow users to use Alexa to get notified about their upcoming due dates for bills. The feature will work by Alexa “linking” with your water, gas, and electric bills. You can even ask Alexa questions about your bills, including things like  “Alexa, compare my electric bill to last month,” “Alexa, did I pay my electric bill?,” or “Alexa, when is my electric bill due?”

Amazon makes it easy for you to stop Alexa from knowing about your bills, so you can simply say “Alexa, disconnect my electric bill” to unlink an account. There are a couple of other commands available, including things like “Did my bill payment go through?” or “When is my gas bill due?”

The feature is powered by Amazon Pay, and the company says it will be available “soon”.
