PayPal just made it a lot easier to send money on your iPhone. On Thursday, the payments giant debuted an integration with Apple’s voice assistant Siri to allow users to send money to contacts via voice commands.

PayPal (pypl) previously unveiled a similar integration with Siri and its Venmo app, which allows people to send money to one another. Venmo and PayPal competitor Square Cash also debuted a voice-controlled feature with Siri earlier this year.

It’s not surprising that PayPal is tapping into voice commands to send money. Tapping into voice-based assistants, like Siri, is becoming a more intense battle for tech giants, including Amazon (amzn) and Google (googl).

PayPal is also potentially gearing up for a busy holiday season with payments. The company predicts that people will use its services to send 17 million transactions in December alone. Last year, the company processed $41 billion in transactions sent from one contact to another using PayPal, Venmo, and Xoom.

The feature is now available in 30 countries.
