You can talk to National Australia Bank on Google Assistant now


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 https://www.nab.com.au/personal/banking/google-assistantNAB website devoted to the new Google Assistant app.

Have you found a neat Australian Google Assistant app, let us know.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

  1. Ask NAB when are you introducing Android Pay

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