Facebook Messenger now lets you send money with TransferWise .
International money transfer service TransferWise Ltd. has announced an integration with Facebook Inc.’s Messenger that will let people set up foreign exchange transactions over the chat service.
London-based TransferWise launched the technology as a bot -- a piece of automation software that understands natural language -- baked within Messenger. The bot, which is free to use and doesn’t affect prices or rates offered, will talk users through the process of arranging an international money transfer with TransferWise.
The service is available for payments to and from the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and Europe, the company said Tuesday. It said it would later expand the offering to all 50 countries -- and 600 currency exchange pairings -- that TransferWise supports.
