Personal assistant on chat Haptik has introduced Reminders and Wake Up calls as native features, increasing the scope of how people use the service.
The call to wake service feature fixes the age old problem of hitting snooze on an alarm and falling back asleep. A call from an unknown number apparently works better at doing that.
By introducing more levels of interaction, Haptik is trying to do more than just push dumb notifications to users alerting them of upcoming tasks and appointments.
Haptik’s take on Reminders is a lot like Google’s all-knowing Now personal assistant, the difference being that Google sifts should a lot of personal info to show you the right info at the right time.
