Isn’t it so difficult to maintain a balance between your work and personal contacts? ACM Digital Library has found that an average mobile user deals with 63.5 notifications each day. These notifications are said to be mostly from messenger and email, assuming that most emails received are from work the time taken to respond to those would be longer than to friends or family. However, juggling multiple conversations is very common nowadays meaning that the average millennial spends an average of 48 minutes texting each day. This can lead to feeling drained more often than not and it can be frustrating to have to spend a long time replying to each message forcing yourself to seem engaged in the conversation, despite actually worrying about needing to reply to a work email you just received.
Katy is a young entrepreneur. Starting her own interior design company meant that she’s barely responding on the ‘Family’ WhatsApp group because she needs to maintain many contacts in various corporate applications. She is forced to compromise on her relationship with family due to the time she needs to dedicate to maintaining other contacts. This means many of Katy’s friends and family are forced to wait a long time to receive a response to their message which can jeopardise that relationship since they can feel unimportant.
New technologies have been introduced to help with these problems. Android phones have access to the swipe function, which enables you to write a word by guiding your finger over all the necessary letters. Despite this function potentially saving you time, it is quite difficult to grasp and there can still be many errors since there will always be characters in between the ones you want. As well as this, many phones have the dictating functionality which, enables you to speak to it and have what you say written on the screen. This technology is very advanced and useful when people are occupied doing other things. However, it can be faulty because there are so many different accents and dialects. This makes this function only available to a specific group of people.
Typly is the newest upcoming technology that opts to eliminate these problems by offering a new functionality that will predict your response to messages. This is possible through the use of machine learning, the app will analyse your responses to all of your messages and adjust its' functionality based on that knowledge. This can ensure a shorter amount of time spent responding to messages, a lower number of spelling and grammar mistakes and better relationships. More information about this application and its' development can be found on the website.
