It looks like Aussie businesses are embracing Google Assistant with Woolworths becoming the first Aussie supermarket with a Google Assistant app, and now National Australia Bank has become the first bank with a Google Assistant app.

The National Australia Bank Google Assistant app is able to be found searching for NAB in the Explore section of Google Assistant. The Assistant app for NAB is able to be used on Google Home, Android and iOS devices, Chromebooks and even TVs running Android TV 6.0+.

There’s a number of commands you can try out with the NAB Google Asssistant app starting with the ‘Talk to NAB’ command to activate it. Once activated, the NAB app can respond to a number of queries including:

  • Ask NAB I’ve lost my card.
  • Ask NAB how do I apply for an account.
  • Ask NAB When is the bank branch open.
  • Talk to NAB about Travel Cards.

You can also try out ‘Help’ to get some direction in what the NAB Google Assistant can do for you as well. Once you’re done, just say Exit or Bye to NAB – or just tap the x at the top of the Assistant window and you’ll be back to Assistant.

There’s no sign of Google Assistant apps from any of the other ‘big 4’ Australian banks – Westpac, ANZ or Commbank – on Google Assistant as yet, but the utility looks good for the NAB app, so perhaps they won’t be far behind.

You can check it out more on the website devoted to the new Google Assistant app.

    Ask NAB when are you introducing Android Pay


    Is using the Google assistant any different using the Google home than using it on your phone? Is there extra functionality?
