Helpchat Introduces Pollution Alert Feature In Their App

Helpchat, a personal assistant app that helps you get various things done, has launched a new feature that aims to help Indian citizens in avoiding pollution related diseases by tracking air quality in their locality. This feature monitors the air in the surrounding environment and delivers a personalised air­quality update via a mobile app, as stated by the company in its press statement.

The app tells users if the air they are breathing is toxic and suggests various ways to take precautions. The app will show the Air Quality Index (AQI) reading from 0 to 500+ (0 being the cleanest and 500 being the worst air quality) and suggest a precautionary measure depending on the air quality. Should the app sense air quality getting below a certain point, it will send an alert to your smartphone, adds the statement.

In addition to this, it also suggests areas that one should avoid visiting in their city so that users can plan the travel for their families and loved ones accordingly. 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.

Since pollution and its impact are directly linked with the weather conditions, Helpchat app also tracks the weather conditions and updates the users in real­time as claimed by the company.

“?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.,”­ Ankur Singla, Founder and CEO, Helpchat stated.

Helpchat’s effort is especially important for cities like Delhi, where government is already putting in preventive measures like odd/even rules.

“We are launching this feature to support the Delhi government and for people of India in their effort to control the rising pollution problem”, added Ankur.
