PhonePe launched its SmartSpeakers for merchants last year and since then it is utilised by thousands of hop owners in India on a daily basis. The SmartSpeaker is an accessory that makes a verbal announcement whenever an amount is added to the UPI account. This is helpful as merchants do not have to open the app repeatedly during busy hours just to know whether money was sent or not. But now, PhonePe is making this feature more fun to use by adding a cool quality-of-life feature. At present, it has a default neutral voice that can be customized for different regional languages. However, this will be upgraded with a new celebrity voice feature using which users will be able to listen to famed actor Amitabh Bachchan's voice on PhonePe SmartSpeakers while receiving payments. Sound cool right? Know how the new feature works.

PhonePe SmartSpeakers

According to a press release shared by PhonePe, the celebrity voice feature was launched in India with the voice of famous actor, Amitabh Bachchan. As of now, the feature is available in two languages: Hindi and English and the company plans to roll out more languages in the near future.
