Revolut announces major overhaul of primary app account
By Gloria Methri
Revolut, the financial global super app, has launched Revolut 10, its biggest update yet, with a major overhaul of the design and layout of the app. The new design is built to make everyday money management as easy as possible, with a special focus on those who increasingly use Revolut as their primary account.
The app has now surpassed 35 million customers globally, having announced 30 million customers in June earlier this summer. The number of customers in Europe using Revolut as their primary account has grown even faster: +90% in the last year.
The company has launched new products and services to help customers make Revolut their primary account. In the last year, the super app has launched Flexible Accounts for savings in 18 European countries, Joint Accounts for customers in the UK and Europe, and expanded credit products to customers in Germany, France, and Spain.
Key products and features will be quickly accessible from the home screen, while tools to build wealth, explore saving and investing, and make the most of lifestyle services and offers are available in just one tap.
Pockets is another feature that is integral to using Revolut as a primary account and has been upgraded for the latest version of the app: Pockets work like sub-accounts where customers can secure money upfront to pay for bills.
Similar to Vaults in previous versions of the app, they allow customers to put money aside separately from their main account for their spending purposes and to organise their money for essentials like bills and subscriptions. Pockets offer customers control over their finances, helping them to better budget, plan, and organise their money.
Ivan Chalov, Revolut Head of Retail, said, “Revolut 10 is the biggest step forward yet in helping our customers make Revolut their primary account. We built Revolut 10 to help customers get a clear view of their money in one place and easily navigate through favourite features and products. Built for ease, we hope the updated, clearer design helps our customers explore existing features and products they may not have known were at their fingertips.”
He further said, “We know every customer is unique and has individual needs, so we are excited to offer customisation options, including widgets, where customers can specify cards or favourite recipients straight on their home screen to move money with one tap. No matter where you are on your financial journey, Revolut can easily help you manage your money better.”
