Kochi, Jul 15 (PTI) The Federal Bank on Thursday launched FEDDY, an Artificial Intelligence-powered virtual assistant to help customers with banking-related queries anytime.
The bank said while most of the similar AI-powered virtual assistants are available only on its website, FEDDY can be accessed via Alexa, Google Assistant and WhatsApp.
'FEDDY is also integrated into Google Business Messaging, a first-of-its-kind feat by an Indian bank. On Google search, FEDDY can be accessed by clicking the 'message/chat' option available against the searched bank branch,' it said in a release.
The bank said FEDDY can be reached on WhatsApp by typing 'FEDDY' and sending it to 8108030845.
The bank has recently come out with innovative and user-friendly facilities such as FedSelfie, under which individuals can open their accounts by merely taking a selfie, and Federal 24x7, which makes possible the opening of accounts through a video call to the bank. PTI RRT RC
