Westpac’s new Cash Tank app with Google Glass and Apple’s iBeacon technology

Westpac plans to offer “opt in” services via Google Glass after Google launches its spectacle-like wearable computers in New Zealand, which is expected to be later this year.

The bank showed off Google Glass and Apple’s iBeacon, the latter through which it’ll send customers personalised messages to their smartphones, to media in Auckland on Thursday.

Simon Pomeroy, Westpac’s chief digital officer, said customers using Google Glass would be able to see their bank balances, transfer money between Westpac accounts, find the closest Westpac ATM or branch, and get alerts or notifications.

The glasses will be voice activated and work either through a smartphone or via wireless internet. Pomeroy said Westpac ultimately planned an “opt in service for customers” who would be able to choose what they use them for, with potential services including bill payments.

Pomeroy said Westpac would have its Google Glass services ready when Google launches the product in New Zealand, which is expected to be later in 2014. He wasn’t sure what they’d sell for. They currently cost US$1,500 plus tax in the United States.
