PhonePe SmartSpeakers unveils voice payment notifications in Kannada

Bengaluru, June 7 (UNI) PhonePe on Wednesday announced the launch of voice payment notifications for its SmartSpeakers in Kannada.
With the introduction of vernacular voice notifications, merchants can now validate customer payments instantly in the regional language of their choice, 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 to enable voice payment notifications, PhonePay Offline Business Head Vivek Lohcheb said.
In Karnataka alone, PhonePe has successfully digitized 30 lakh merchant partners, who are actively utilizing its QR codes and other solutions, he said.
With the addition of voice payment notifications in Kannada, they can now access PhonePe SmartSpeakers in their preferred language within the PhonePe for Business app, without incurring any extra charges, Lohcheb said.
On an average, PhonePe SmartSpeakers validate 11 crore transactions per month in Karnataka, demonstrating its widespread adoption in the state, he said.
PhonePe had launched SmartSpeakers last year to provide reliable and convenient payment tracking at stores.
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. UNI BDN
