iPhone and iPad users can now talk to Siri to send PayPal money transfers

Starting today, iPhone and iPad users in Canada can send PayPal money transfers to their friends and family members by simply talking to Siri.

The functionality, available in both English and French, is limited to iPhones and iPads running iOS 10. To initiate a money transfer, all you need to say is something along the lines of “Hey Siri, send Bill $50 using PayPal.”

The added functionality comes ahead of a month in which PayPal predicts people around the world will complete more than 17 million peer-to-peer transactions.

In October, PayPal signed a deal with Facebook to allow its users to send peer-to-peer transfers via the social media giant’s Messenger app.

Download the PayPal app from the iTunes App Store.
