reQall introduces reqallable InCar (beta), the first context-aware app to intuitively decrease phone-related text and email distractions while driving. The new app works by detecting a user’s Bluetooth connection and launching the phone into reqallable InCar mode, which prompts the handset to acknowledge notifications only from priority contacts, highlight and read aloud critical details within incoming emails and texts, and enable voice activated replies for safer, smarter in-car phone use.
Available for Android, reqallable InCar hooks into the phone’s contacts, calendar and user’s home and work locations to contextually assign “priority” status to incoming messages. When a Bluetooth connection is detected, reqallable InCar launches and quickly identifies whether a message is VIP status – like from a spouse or colleague at work – while less critical emails and texts are held back until you have reached your destination, or the Bluetooth connection ends.
For texts or emails messages deemed a priority, reqallable InCar distills the content to present only the most salient details, delivering requests and action items via audio. Users can reply to messages by voice, with responses “read” back to the driver to insure accuracy. Users can also listen, and respond to, awaiting messages and reach out to VIP contacts with the quick touch of a single button.
reqallable InCar comes on the heels of Google Glass and smartwatch app launches by reQall, which introduced reqallable’s virtual assistant technology for Google Glass in June, the Toq smartwatch in May, the Pebble smartwatch in March, the Samsung Gear in February and the Sony Smartwatch in January. New reQall apps for other devices and environments will be released in the coming months.
reqallable InCar beta can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
