India's FreeCharge now lets you recharge your mobile number through voice commands

Indian mobile payments service FreeCharge is rolling out a voice recharge feature on its Windows Phone app through which you can recharge your mobile number by uttering a unique voice command. The feature is activated by long pressing the search button and saying the desired voice command.

FreeCharge mentions that the feature was designed to simplify the recharge process. Here's how it works:

The payments service also provided instructions as to how you can create your own voice commands:

"On completion of any successful transaction on the FreeCharge App for Windows Phone, you will be shown a option to 'Save as Voice Card'. You can save the voice card by a nick name of your choice, for eg. – "Me". Or if you are recharging for your friend (say Alok) you can save as "Alok". That's it! You can view all your voice cards in the Menu Option. Make sure you have FreeCharge credits available in your account. That makes your recharges fly."

Let us know what voice command you're going to set in the comments below.
