On 13th May 2014, digital money transfer giant – Xoom – announced a major upgrade to their application that enables users to sign up and transfer cash to family as well as friends instantly and not only to existing recipients as was the case before the update.
Previously, Xoom users could only send cash to their existing recipients. Xoom’s updated app enables senders to sign up and transfer cash with just a few simple steps, even if he is a first time user. This is in addition to any existing recipients utilizing Android or iOS devices.
'The App upgrade presents a tremendous opportunity for Xoom. In keeping with our mission of creating a seamless customer experience across our platform, our upgrade will make it faster and easier for new users to send money for the first time directly from the Xoom App, a major step forward for our mobile offering, stated the VP of Product at Xoom, Joe Raymond, in a press release. We believe this enhanced customer experience will make it even easier for new users to send money to friends and family, he added.
