Telkom Kenya has finally launched an application for its mobile money service, T-Kash.
The T-Kash app, launched last week, is available for download through the Google Play Store and the Huawei Store for Android device users and, for our iPhone-totting brothers and sisters, the Apple App Store.
Before the app’s introduction, users could access T-Kash via the *160# short code.
“The T-kash App will enable the customer to send money to a mobile wallet within the Telkom network, to an M-Pesa wallet and soon to an Airtel Money wallet, or to a bank account, to buy airtime and data bundles for their own Telkom line or for another Telkom customer, pay bills, as well as make withdrawals and deposits at a T-kash agent,” a statement from Telkom Kenya reads.
According to Telkom Kenya’s Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, Julius Cheptiony, more features and services are set to be added to the app in the coming months.
The launch of the T-Kash app is the latest in a string of moves by Telkom Kenya towards making its T-Kash service more accessible to the public. Last year, the company had the service integrated into Citizen, the government digital services platform, allowing users to make payments for digital services offered by various government agencies at both the national and county level.
