Eau Claire (WQOW)- Xcel Energy is making it easier for customers to pay their bills, by having your Google Assistant device do all the work for you.
Xcel Energy spokesperson Chris Ouellette said customers can now use their Google Assistant to keep up with their account.
Ouellette said if you have Google Nest or Google Home, all you have to do is download your google assistant app and sync your Xcel Energy account to the Google Assistant and you’re good to go.
“All you have to do is say ‘okay Google pay my Xcel Energy bill’ and the Google Assistant will walk you through how to pay your bill, how much you owe or maybe if you’re just wanting to get your account balance information you can ask google for that information,” said Ouellette.
She said for now, only customers with google devices can use the assistant actions, but maybe in the future customers with other devices like Alexa will have this option as well.
