The banking sector has utilized the digitalized technology to its core by making its service more convenient for its customers. The mobile banking, Internet Banking, Scan and pay banking are one among the technology, which is being provided by banks to their customers. Now the banking sectors have also aggressively started using AR technology to enhance the experience for customers.
One of the most interesting technologies in the digital space is Augmented reality. AR is an experience where parts of users’ physical world are enhanced with computer-generated input. It can provide an interactive experience of a virtual environment in the real world. AR can make illusions look real, and users can do things as he or she would do in the real world. Augmented reality (AR) is one of the biggest technology trends right now and it’s going to get bigger as AR-powered smartphones and other devices become more accessible around the world.
