An independent developer who goes by the name XRpTo_O has allegedly created a program for iOS which will allow users to conduct XRP transactions with voice commands.
Through simple voice commands with the voice assistant feature on iPhones and iPads alike, Siri users are able to find all exchanges for specific trading pairs. The app will also support shortcut commands and other features to make it intuitive and easy-to-use.
This is a very clever example of how cryptocurrency adoption is likely to enter the mainstream, not by encouraging mainstream investment, rather, by allowing cryptocurrencies like XRP to become integrated within the products we use on a daily basis. Yes, it may seem a bit novel using voice commands to move XRP around, however, it is novel ideas like this that will go a long way in ensuring cryptocurrency can work within the mainstream.
A video posted on Twitter by the developers shows a user communicating with Siri through voice commands which have been uploaded. The app first works by aiding users to locate an XRP TipBot, scanning a QR code or checking contacts, specifying an amount of XRP that they would like to send. After this, users can confirm or

Even though the amateur footage in the tweet only shows a use sending XRP tips, the developer has said he’s been working to include more features and functions to the app in the future. In one of his tweets, he adds that the app works by establishing a connection between Siri and the XRP TipBot. Following the connection, all other commands send XRP are processed with voice.
Despite this being a good feature for iOS devices and great for the industry, Ripple Labs isn’t directly involved with the developer of the app as of yet.
