PhonePe announced today that it has deployed a record-breaking 20 lakh SmartSpeakers in just six months since its launch. The SmartSpeakers assist in the validation of customer payments without the need for human intervention.

PhonePe SmartSpeakers, according to the company, are used to validate more than 75 crore transactions per month on average. It also stated that merchant partners in approximately 16,000 pin codes across the country are now using the SmartSpeaker, a 75% increase, with Tier III locations seeing the deployment of over 5 lakh devices.

The PhonePe SmartSpeakers offer payment notifications in 11 Indian languages, a dedicated replay button for the most recent transaction, dedicated data connectivity, a best-in-class battery life of up to 4 days with a dedicated battery level LED indicator and low battery alerts, great audio clarity even in the noisiest of environments, and a compact and versatile form factor.

According to the company, this allows merchants to use it even in the most crowded counter spaces. PhonePe claims that by providing such convenience to merchants, it is seeing a successful market adoption of PhonePe’s SmartSpeakers, enabling an increase in digital payments.

Vivek Lohcheb, Head of Offline Business at PhonePe, commented on this achievement:
