SBI launched WhatsApp banking services
WhatsApp has become an easy way of communication everywhere. Now many banks are providing banking facilities through WhatsApp. Following suit, the country’s largest bank State Bank of India (SBI) has also started offering the facility of WhatsApp banking. 

You can now take advantage of many services including bank balance and mini statements through chat on SBI’s WhatsApp number. Customers now don’t have to go to the ATM anymore. SBI informed about the new feature through a tweet. On July 19, SBI said, “Your bank is now on WhatsApp. Get to know your Account Balance and view Mini Statements on the go”. 

Notably, a few days ago, SBI chairman Dinesh Khara revealed plans of the bank to go the WhatsApp way. In a tweet, SBI tweeted how to use the service. The public lender said, “send Hi on +919022690226 and follow the instructions to avail our services”. 

During the press meet held on July 01, Khara said SBI would be launching WhatsApp Banking Services for customers soon. However, he didn’t talk about what type of services SBI is going to launch. 

To avail benefits of SBI WhatsApp Banking, you have to register first. For this, you have to type WAREG, then write your account number after giving space and send an SMS to 7208933148. The text format should be like this – WAREG <space>Account Number and send it to 7208933148. Keep in mind, send this message from the same number which is registered with your SBI account.
