Freecharge digital payments app is now available on Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10 which can be downloaded from Windows Store. This app will work on tablets, laptops, and desktops running on Windows 10. Freecharge will be launching the Windows 10 app for smartphones next month.
This app has adaptive tiles that showcase contextual data to users. While the normal tile displays the wallet balance, the wide tile indicates the wallet balance and also provides users with reminders on deals and offers. The large tile displays the details of most recent transactions undertaken by customers, as stated by the company in its press statement.
In an industry first, users can now complete an end to end recharge and make bill payments using Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-based smart assistant. Cortana works by using the Favorites feature in the app. It recognizes names that users set in Favorites and enables a transaction for those favorites without opening the Freecharge app. Users can make transactions on Cortana (both text and voice input supported) without even opening the application, adds the statement of the company.
Commenting on the announcement, Govind Rajan, CEO, Freecharge, said, “We are excited to be the first in the payments industry to launch a unified app for Windows 10 to be accessed via tablets, laptops, and desktops. This integration will help us widen our user base by reaching out to millions of consumers on the Windows platform. The unified app on Windows will provide an engaging user experience and seamless transaction with our less-than-10 second payment completion process. Freecharge has rapidly gained acceptance as a trusted and easy-to-use replacement for cash among merchants and consumers as we aim to achieve our mission of becoming the Digital Payment OS of India.”
