Helpchat, a personal assistant app has launched a new feature that monitors the air in the surrounding environment and delivers a personalised air quality update via a mobile app.
The app tells users if the air they are breathing is toxic and suggests various ways to take precautions. If the app senses air quality getting below a certain point, it will send an alert to your smartphone.
It also suggests areas that one should avoid visiting in their city so that users can plan the travel.
The AQI index shown by the app measures a number of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide, and even cleaning agents or allergens that might affect the lungs or harm the health long term.
“Like a real life personal assistant, Helpchat anticipates and suggests things that makes people’s life easy. At a time when everyone’s major concern is air pollution,we thought of building an intelligent feature that can be of great help to people. Our pollution alerts will inform you about the air you are breathing and also suggest precautions to you. Going forward, we will enable people to buy pollution masks, suggest childrenfriendly outdoor zones, and even facilitate health checkups,” said, Ankur Singla, Founder and CEO, Helpchat.
Team at Helpchat has gone ahead and analysed last few months air quality across India and have come with a report around pollution.
