Mei is the first-ever messaging app to have an optional built-in AI relationship assistant designed to improve your conversations.
No matter how great any of us are at texting, we can still be better. If you choose to turn our assistant on, Mei can give you insights on your conversations. She can interpret communication from others in real-time, help you understand how you can come across and even alert you when she senses certain things in your conversation. Unlike other AI assistants that focus on tasks, our AI is designed to understand you and then give you actionable intelligence about your relationships that can’t be accessed anywhere else or aren’t always obvious. She helps you, and only you, so your contacts be informed you're using the assistant.
Texting Advice: With our latest release, Mei will start offering her first set of texting advice based on perceived personality differences. Our unique personalities and ways we express ourselves can often lead to miscommunication and misinterpretation. Mei will now consider what she detects as differences between the user’s and contact’s personalities and provide initial suggestions on how to bridge the gap in communication. If she perceives a contact as very spontaneous and the user more organized, she will tell the user It’s okay to play things by ear.
Predictions: Mei can predict the age and gender of users and contacts. What we learned early in studying text messages was certain demographics like age and gender tend to correlate with the way we text. In addition, Mei is also able to predict the type of relationship you have with the person you’re texting – whether they are a friend, family member or crush (someone you’re romantically involved in).
Personality: Improving your relationships start with better understanding yourself. Without asking any questions, Mei can give you a full personality profile showing you how you appear to come across in your texts. Unlike most personality tools, which ask question after question, we don’t need any input from you – Mei analyzes the text messages already on your phone. You can also see the personalities of the people you text with and see how similar you text.
Even without turning on the assistant, our app is meant to be an improvement on the default SMS/texting app that comes pre-packaged in most Androids. So with Mei, you can communicate with anyone in the world even if they don't have our app. But when texting other Mei users, we added more features like data messages and encryption.
End-To-End Encryption: When texting with other Mei users, we use end-to-end encryption
Free International Messaging: Since our messages can be transmitted through the internet as data messages, our users can communicate with each other in any country for free
Unsending Messages: Unsend messages at any time, whether or not the person has read it
Expiring Messages: Messages expire after a pre-set amount of time after the message has been read
Exploding Messages: Instead of starting the timer after the message has been read, it starts after you send the message
