About this app

Each cat has their own unique vocabulary that they use to communicate with their owners consistently when in the same context. For example, a cat can have their own distinct meow for “food” or for “let me out.” This is not necessarily a language, as cats do not share the same meows to communicate the same things with each other, but we can use Machine Learning to interpret an individual cat’s meows and translate that into a human readable language. MeowTalk by Akvelon gives your cat a voice!

Using machine learning MeowTalk instantaneously translates your cat’s meows into one of nine general cat intents; these nine intents represent cat moods and states of mind and are as follows:

- Happy/Content
- Defense
- Angry
- Attack
- Mother Call
- Mating Call
- In Pain
- Resting
- Hunting

In addition to these nine general intents, each cat also has a unique vocabulary of meows. You can train the MeowTalk app to learn your cat’s unique vocabulary of meows by telling the app what each meow means when your cat makes it. When you give the app 5 to 10 examples of a specific meow for your cat (e.g. “food”, “let me out”) the app can start to recognize that meow when it hears it. The meow recognition is updated once a day so it may take up to 24 hours for the app to start recognizing the new word after you have provided the training information.

To train the app to learn a specific meow pick a context where you know with certainty what your cat is trying to say (e.g. at feeding time the cat is saying “food”, at the door the cat is saying “let me out”). Use the app to translate those meows. You will get one of the nine general intents as a translation, select “No, Change it” and then provide the correct translation. Repeat this 5 to 10 times then wait up to 24 hours for the app to update and learn your cat’s new word.

Not a free app! Just want to say that right off the bat! You can't do anything beside make your cat's profile without paying. Also, I went into this with pretty low expectations for translation accuracy (just in it for the novelty really), but they were REALLY wrong. When it picked up my cat's voice at all, that is. Admittedly, she makes some really weird noises, but an angry growl is definitely a cat noise, and definitely not "I'm happy!"

Fun little app, but it's not free. Won't let you see any translations until you subscribe, and I don't know if it's worth $3/month. It doesn't always seem to pick up the meows, and the "translations" are limited, and questionable, at best. You can alter the translations or add your own to make it more "accurate," but if you already know what your cat is saying to do that, then why use the app at all? Also, I was hoping I could set it up to listen with Google Home, but it's not supported.

Read a cool article about this app in the New York Times that described being able to watch ads to get translations in the free version. Apparently not so - almost like they took that out to make a money grab on publicity. You can record and send them data but not get any translations without subscribing. I have no idea if it's any good and I'm not paying to find out.
