Fiserv, ExxonMobil to unveil Alexa-enabled gas payments at CES
Fiserv Inc. announced an agreement with ExxonMobil that will allow motorists to pay for gasoline using Alexa voice control technology starting later this year, when their cars are equipped with Echo Auto devices.
The companies said the gasoline purchases will be paid for with Amazon Pay. The technology will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show this week at the Amazon Automotive booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"As consumer expectations change, there is a growing demand for frictionless interactions that span the digital and physical worlds," Devin McGranahan, senior vice president, global business solutions at Fiserv, said in a comapany release. "The age of connected commerce is here, and voice activated smart devices will play a pivotal role in the future of payments by streamlining the way consumers make purchases every day.
Drivers just need to say, "Alexa, pay for gas," and the transaction will be seamless to the customer.
