You Can Ask Alexa to Pay Your Credit Card Bill – Will Loans Be Next?

Amazon EchoVery soon, you will be able to pay your bills just a second after you turn on that thermostat.

Capital One and Amazon want to give Alexa, the “skill” to become your personal teller and allow the home automation device to pay your bills, check balances and review transactions.

Starting next week, Capital One customers will be able to use the app through Alexa and instruct the digital assistant.

“Alexa, ask Capital One for recent transactions on my checking account”

“Alexa, ask Capital One for my Quicksilver Card balance.”

“Alexa, ask Capital One to pay my credit card bill.”

Of course, security concerns will remain key as Internet Of Things slowly finds a way into people’s homes. But for now, Alexa can take care of that outstanding cellphone bill.

If the feature catches on, it will only be a matter of time before loans become a thing you can wish for out loud and have Alexa make a reality.
