State Bank of India, India's largest public sector lender, has launched WhatsApp Banking services to make banking easier for its customers, according to a tweet from the bank. SBI customers can now use WhatsApp to access certain banking services from the lender, which may be convenient for many because they no longer need to download the app or visit an ATM. This comes just days after SBI chairman Dinesh Khara revealed the bank's plans to go the WhatsApp route.

“Your bank is now on WhatsApp. Get to know your Account Balance and view Mini Statement on the go," SBI said in a tweet dated July 19.

Customers will be able to access SBI WhatsApp Banking services by sending a message saying 'Hi' to the number +919022690226, according to the bank's tweet. During a press conference on July 1, Khara announced that SBI would soon launch WhatsApp Banking services for customers, but he did not specify which services would be available. However, we now know what services customers can get after the launch.

How to Avail SBI WhatsApp Banking Services

Step 1: If you have not registered your account, you need to provide your consent first to get SBI banking services on WhatsApp with the number provided by the bank. An unregistered customer will receive the following message: You are not registered for SBI WhatsApp Banking services.
