I think even you will not be able to find a more comfortable and functional voice assistant than Google now. Yes, there is Alice from Yandex, which shows his best side, but even its range of capabilities is inferior to the decision by the search giant. The impression that Google is always a step or two ahead of everyone else, because they begin with the introduction of new functions and mechanisms before users begin to wonder about their necessity. The purchase confirmation voice from the same series.
Google plans to simplify payments through Google now, by adding support for verification of voice. Appropriate the novelty has already appeared some users, but due to the fact that it is still in the final stages of testing, it can not do everything. Now users can pay for purchases online that they found a voice assistant, using his own voice without the need to scan the fingerprint or enter the passcode to confirm the transaction.
Online payment through Google
Someone probably will think that the text of the error has crept in, and voice confirmation actually had to appear in Google Pay. But it is not. Not everyone knows that Google now has a built-in search function and the payment of the desired goods using the account bound Bank card. Thus, for example, you can buy things online without having to fill out all contact information manually. The assistant will automatically fill in all the required fields, including the delivery address and pay for the order.
How to pay using Google
- Go to “Settings” – Google – “Services account”;
- Here open the “Search Assistant and voice control” – “Google”;
- In the opened window, select “Payments” and select “Payment wizard”;
- In the line “payment Method”, enter your payment card details;
- In the line “shipping Address,” please enter your home address where to be delivery of the goods;
- If you want you can choose proof of identity before payment.
Frankly, the ability to make purchases using Google Assistant is not available in all the online stores, but in Russia this function works. So if you suddenly will be able to find a trading platform which supports autocomplete data using the Google Assistant, you will see that it is convenient and, importantly, safely, as all order information will be encrypted while on the mail you will receive a letter with additional information.
Confirmation of purchases on Android
The confirmation function of voice is much more promising than it might seem at first glance. Moreover, the voice refers to biometrics along with fingerprints and face it, it is most convenient for the verification of important actions. Because, as it turned out, some users worry that facial recognition technology can harm their eyes because of the IR sensor, translucent face and transmit your fingerprints many people do not want, because they believe that they will go directly to the American secret services.
How reliable is voice? I think that is very reliable. First, we must note that modern banks use the voices of their customers to identify them. And secondly, Google is so vast database of votes, which she probably learned how to analyze and distinguish. Not the last role in this process was played by software algorithms and artificial intelligence, with which the search giant also no problem. So I would not doubt that voice verification is one of the most reliable ways to confirm the identity.
