Connected Cars: New App Creates Conversation Bridge Between Drivers

With the new Hey Andy app, connected cars have never been more, well, connected. At least, their drivers haven’t. The brain child of Sophilabs, Hey Andy takes some of the boredom out of longer drives by connecting drivers with common interests for conversations.

According to the developer’s description, Hey Andy works like a Q&A platform, allowing drivers to listen to, reply to, or create their own conversation topics to which other drivers can respond or create additional conversations. In short, Hey Andy connects drivers by way of voice calls to discuss topics of interest with other drivers. This encourages them to meet new people as they share lively discussions. Connected cars and connected drivers: It beats spending a long drive alone.

One-hundred percent handsfree, Hey Andy operates by voice commands. It uses conversational artificial intelligence (AI) to communicate with users, including different natural language processing techniques that help automatically recognize interests, suggesting appropriate conversation topics for each user. Think of it as Twitter with audible tweets. It allows users to create and reply in 20-second audio messages.

Sophilabs is a 6-year-old software design and development agency with offices in New York City and Montevideo, Uruguay. Hey Andy is available in your app store for free.
