Title: PAIRING COMPUTING DEVICES VIA AUDIO COMMUNICATION CHANNELS
Abstract:
A second computing device operator initiates a service request. The second computing device transmits a request identifier and a displayed image to a processing system, which associates the received image and the request identifier. In an example, the second computing device broadcasts an audio token via an audio communication channel comprising the request identifier and displayed image. A user associated with a first computing device selects an option to initiate a service request and the first computing device receives the audio token via the audio communication channel. The first computing device displays at least the received image and the user selects the image on the first computing device among a group of displayed images to confirm the service request. In another example, the user selects a different image to cancel the service request. The processing system receives the selected image from the first computing device and processes the service request.
