We’re very pleased to announce another important milestone this week: the launch of our brand spanking new Android app! 🎉
Plum was born on Facebook Messenger, and our chatbot is still very comfortable there. However, we want to bring a bit of Plum magic to anyone, anywhere who wants to boost their bank balance. So it was important to us to make Plum available as an app too, as there are many people out there who don’t have or choose not to use Messenger.
We launched our app for iOS back in April 2019 and were pleased to see steady download growth each month. That convinced us that Plum could work successfully as an app, and we’ve been working hard ever since to bring an Android version to our patiently-waiting Plumsters.
This week, we did it! Both apps launched and stable, making us one of the very few financial AI assistants that are available across Facebook Messenger, iOS AND Android. Not too shabby, eh?
About Plum for Android
If you’re new to Plum as an app, don’t worry: it’s pretty straightforward and is just as good, if not better, than Plum on Messenger (phew!)
Here are a few big benefits of using the Plum app.
On Android, you can log in using Face Unlock, Fingerprint authorization or PIN Unlock (depending on your device’s compatibility) which adds an extra level of security.
It’s easy to use
Rather than having to remember commands to tell Plum, you can find things like “Brain” easily in the welcome screen and make changes in the quickest of taps.
It has all the same features
Savings, investments, round-ups, you name it… we got it. Plum will still talk to you every day like before, but its words of wisdom will be in the “Messages” bubble on the right hand corner.
You don’t have to use Messenger
While many users love Facebook Messenger, we’re happy that our Android users now have another option.
You can download Plum for Android on the Play Store now! And don’t forget to leave a review 💜
