Introducing Money View on Amazon Echo

As a Money View user, I am sure you feel stress-free as you can track your finances effortlessly.

Money View is glad to be associated with Amazon as one of the initial Skills partners. Now, Money View users can keep a tab on their spends, bank balances and even the upcoming bills with voice commands through the Amazon Echo device. Sounds perfect, right?

What is Amazon Echo?

Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker which can be controlled with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly.

The success of Amazon Echo portrays the promising technological innovations which can help you get in control of your life and gadgets through your voice. It will seem like a Bluetooth speaker to you in the first instance, but it is much more versatile and most importantly, it not only speaks but also listens. No wonder, it has been a great success in the United States, and it is our turn in India to use this advanced technology.

Amazon Echo will help you be better aware of your finances using your voice. Just like graphical information over the app, Money View option on Amazon Echo will help you keep a tab on the following:

  • Spends – Know total spends for the current month
  • Bank Account Balance – Know how much balance you have in each of your bank accounts
  • Bills – Know what and when are your upcoming bill dues

For e.g. you can ask Alexa, the lovely assistant for Amazon Echo, “Alexa, ask Money View, how much did I spend/what is my spend?” This skill lets the user know about his spend for the current month. Example: You have spent Rs. 62,000 this month/Your spend for the month is Rs. 62,000. So easy. Users can keep a check on their spends as and when they desire.

The team at Money View loved this opportunity to collaborate with Amazon Echo to bring something new and useful to its users. Just like Money View has always been helping its users be financially fit, Amazon Echo will bring more ease into the process by eliminating the need of browsing through the phone and knowing spends/ bank balances. Now, all you need to do is just ask Alexa.
