Xcel: Customers can now pay bill via Google Assistant

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Xcel Energy and Google are rolling out a new set of voice that could allow you to pay your bill without picking up your phone.

In a news release, the company said customers can now hear their account balance, due date and make payments by using Google Assistant-enabled devices.

Once a customer has linked their Xcel Energy account to Google Assistant, they can say, “OK Google, pay my energy bill,” and the assistant will speak the information and give the option to pay the relevant balance.

The new actions aren’t the first fruit of the partnership between Xcel and the tech giant.

Last year, Xcel launched Google Assistant voice actions that allowed customers to access more information about improving their homes’ energy efficiency.

Google Assistant is available on Android phones, iPhones and many smart devices.
