Secure or scary? Smart homes come to Burien Burien Smart Homes

Ally Bank was one of the first banks to deliver a more intuitive and personalized banking experience using an artificial intelligence-powered voice service with the launch of Ally AssistSM in 2015.

Customers who voice shop with Alexa will get an exclusive shopping window several hours earlier than the general public with access to some of the best deals starting at 8 p.m. EST, Wednesday, Nov. 22., according to Amazon. In case you do end up buying an Amazon device, make sure to try Alexa's new commands for the holidays. In a press release, the parent of Ally Invest said that it launched Ally Skills for Amazon.com, Inc.'s (AMZN) Alexa, the digital virtual assistant found in the e-commerce giant's Echo devices.

Along with the Ally Skill, the bank also introduced two other enhancements for deposits customers: Face ID® and "Send Money with Zelle®". To use the capability, customers simply tell Alexa the price of any item, their annual income and the average hours worked each week.

Ally Bank customers can now ask their Amazon Alexa-enabled device to calculate how many working hours it will take to afford a purchase, the bank announced this week. Ally Bank also launched Face ID and Send Money with Zelle® for deposit customers.

"In today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, our customers are looking for easier, individualized ways to manage their banking needs, which is why we are so excited to be working with Amazon to launch the Ally Skill", said Diane Morais, president of Consumer and Commercial Banking Products at Ally Bank.

While Ally Invest has not announced similar technology for its robo-advisory platform, its parent is focused on advanced technology, which should mean that more capabilities are coming to Ally Invest as well.
