About this app

ping is NOT a free app, we offer a 14 day free trial.

ping automatically reads your text (SMS) messages, Email, Facebook Messenger, Hangouts, Slack and ALL other messages out loud!

Perfect for when you’re driving, or when using your phone is unsafe, inconvenient, or illegal.

We provide an easy to use tool that’s perfect for: Uber, Lyft, Via, Gett, ridesharing, truck, commercial and student drivers.

ping is great for professionals, or anyone else on the go commuting.

PRICING & SUBSCRIPTION

ping has three paid subscription options: $2, $4, or $7 / month, with a 14-day free trial on certain plans.

With ping’s out loud message reading and a one-tap auto responder, staying up to date with your messages doesn’t mean you need to be distracted by your phone. We automatically pause and resume audiobooks, music or other audio you’re already playing for the most seamless message reading possible.

You don’t need to choose between ping and your other apps, either. Especially while you’re in the car. ping works well with navigation and music apps!

CAN YOU USE ping TO RESPOND TO MESSAGES?


Many have asked us to add a feature that allows replying using voice to text. We have decided against this feature due to several reasons:

 It’s unsafe and very distracting, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration guidelines specifically advise against this, and the technology is simply not accurate enough yet.

This app is icing on the cake when used with the Alexa app. I have an Amazon Echo Auto device and there's nothing that I can't do. It can automatically recognize when I am driving and enables messages and emails to be played through my car audio system. It works for any app that sends messages. The list price is $50. For sure, I recommend this amazing app! BTW, support is topnotch and quick!

This app is very invasive, it asks for too many permissions that have nothing to do with reading emails (GPS for example). It also does not read emails unless they happen to arrive while you have it on, and in "drive mode". I tried to mark emails unread, but it did not detect them. So, there was absolutely no way for me to get it to read my emails, unless I forwarded them to myself while I had the app on. They should say it's only for driving.

Hi Adam, ping will read unread messages and emails after it has been in monitoring mode, this is the mode that it goes into after you come out of drive mode. This then runs in the background and captures unread messages and email that will then be available the next time you go into the app and click on the read my messages button. Drive safe!

Been a subscriber to the "good" tier for a few months now. I use ping every day. So useful. Does just what I want, "read my messages while driving". It does so much more. New home screen is better. Love hearing all my calendar events for the day. Very helpful. Media play button sits on a blue tab, cuts off some of the text. Wish there was a progress bar on the media section. "hey ping" voice commands are awesome. Needs some more information on how to use it properly. My app of the year! Thanks!
