How to Send or Receive Money With Google Assistant – (Step-By-Step Guide)
Before you can be able to do transaction using Google Assistant, you need to have initially installed ‘Google Pay’ on your device (and don’t forget that you will need to install Google Assistant itself also.)
Let me remind you that Google Pay is now the new product of Android Pay and Google Wallet.
How to Sign Up for Google Assistant
To sign up is so easy. All you need to do is to get the app on your phone and link either a debit or credit card from MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Visa from US Banks.
°°° To Send Money °°°
After downloading the two apps above, launch Assistant and simply say “Send Stephen Olgade one thousand dollars for Sponsored Post”.
Note that “Stephen Olgade” is your friend’s or receiver Name and “one thousand dollars” is the amount you want to send and “for sponsored post” is the reason for the transaction.
So, after saying that, Google Assistant will automatically analyze what you said and show you the transaction, if the transaction is correct, you will say “Send” and you will finally confirm the transaction with your password or fingerprint.
°°° To Receive Money °°°°
All you have to do after installing both Google Assistant and Pay on your smartphone is to launch the App as usual and say “Hello Google, Request $100 from Stephen Olgade for Sponsored Post” and automatically, Google will do the rest after you confirmed that the transaction is correct.
After you confirmed the transaction, Google will send an email, text message or notification to the person if he has already installed Google Assistant on his/her Phone.
If the person didn’t have the Google Apps on his/her phone, a link to download the app will be sent to him by Google to sign up and the transaction will be done and completed.
