PhonePe SmartSpeakers to Offer Voice Payment Notifications in Odia
Bhubaneswar : PhonePe SmartSpeakers will soon be launching voice payment notifications in Odia. With the addition of voice payment notifications in Odia, merchants across the state can now access PhonePe SmartSpeakers in their preferred language within the PhonePe for Business app.
Merchants can also validate customer payments instantly in Odia, without having to check the customer’s phone screen or wait for the payment confirmation SMS from the bank, especially during peak business hours.
PhonePe SmartSpeakers are currently being utilized by merchant partners across 19,000 pin codes (covering over 90% of the country). The company had launched SmartSpeakers last year, to provide reliable and convenient payment tracking at stores. Within a short span of time, PhonePe has seen record-high deployment of over four million SmartSpeakers across the country. This is the fastest ramp-up seen for such devices among offline merchants nationwide.
Some of the features that make PhonePe SmartSpeakers stand out in the market include portability, a best-in-class battery, great audio clarity even in the noisiest of environments, and the compact and versatile form factor which allows merchants to use it even in the most congested counter spaces. Earlier merchants using feature phones relied heavily on SMS, but now with the PhonePe SmartSpeakers, their payment validation experience has been significantly eased. PhonePe SmartSpeakers come with up to 4 days of battery life, data connectivity, a dedicated battery level LED indicator for ease of use, audio alerts for low battery level, and a replay button for the last transaction.
