Gupshup Is Changing The Messaging Game With New AI SMS Software

Gupshup Is Changing The Messaging Game With New AI SMS Software

Despite the evolving nature of technology in today’s digital age, there are certain things that haven’t adapted as fast. Approximately 30% of iPhones suffer from some type of damage during the course of a year, something that hasn’t really changed, and from those cracked screens we send billions of text messages without thinking about how long it’s been since texting has evolved.

While our smartphones have made us forget about T9 Word predictive texting from 1995, there’s another stage in the evolution of SMS messaging on the horizon from the smart messaging platform Gupshup.

Gupshup Is Changing The Messaging Game With New AI SMS Software

Revolutionizing the modern text message

Gupshup may be a startup, but it’s not the first startup created by Beerud Sheth, the company’s founder. Sheth has founded many other companies and co-founded Elance, which recently went public on Nasdaq as Upwork.

Gupshup, which was the first company to pair up with WhatsApp Business as an enterprise messaging partner, currently has a turnover of 700 crores and is growing at a rate of 30% a year. Many tech startups and platforms use Gupshup to reach out to their customers.

Gupshup Is Changing The Messaging Game With New AI SMS SoftwareMessaging With New AI SMS Software

“The messaging app hasn’t changed much over the years, right from the feature phones to the latest smartphones, it’s still just a simple list of plain text messages,” said Sheth in an interview with Business Insider. “That was okay 20 years ago, but now there’s a ton of messages that come in. Though personal messages have shifted to WhatsApp, enterprise messages still find their place in text.”

Clearing the clutter in messaging

Gupshup will be introducing new AI-powdered SMS categorizing software to clear up the clutter in messaging. The software works by looking at enterprise messages and classifying them as e-commerce, real estate, banking, or others.

Gupshup Is Changing The Messaging Game With New AI SMS Software

From there, any important information is extracted from the text and shown to you in a simple card. Sheth says the idea of the software is to give you a kind of personal assistant who goes through your texts and gives you the information you need.

Gupshup is currently partnering exclusively with OnePlus to launch the AI-powered SMS software. For optimal privacy, the software will be running entirely on the device and doesn’t send data to any server. Every device you use will have its own software.

How does the AI-powered software work?

You can either have the software pre-loaded onto your new device or have it installed on your existing device through an over-the-air update. Once the upgraded messaging app is on your phone, you can use it to make reading text messages easier.

Here’s how it works. When a new message arrives in your inbox, the messaging app will analyze the message and classify it by identifying which category the message belongs to. Then the messaging app extracts the key factors in the message and identifies the important information within it.

Finally, the app visualizes the message to the user by rendering the message as a card. Cards enable the user to focus on the key information because it reduces clutter.

For enterprises, this messaging app opens a new door of opportunities, especially now that a growing number of employees are working remotely when up to 86% of U.S. workers commuted to work just six years ago. With this new technology, enterprises can improve customer engagement, decrease customer support costs, and increase read time.

How Plotagraphs Are Changing the Face of Instagram

How Plotagraphs Are Changing the Face of Instagram

Instagram influencers have been a widely discussed topic of conversation in recent years, for better or for worse. On average a wedding photographer will deliver 300-400 photographs. On Instagram, it’s not uncommon to see an account, and even stories, with hundreds to thousands of pictures.

Now, there are ways to make your pictures even more interactive. Unlike traditional moving photos (AKA cinemagraphs), which rely on a series of burst shots or videos to make the image move, the Plotaverse app starts with an image and uses patterns within the picture to encourage movement. The result is a gif-like image that you can share on social media for the whole world to enjoy, AKA Plotagraphs.

How Plotagraphs Are Changing the Face of Instagram

These photos could, potentially, be the new wave of photos on Instagram. Just take a page out of Patricia Manterola’s profile and see how she’s been using Plotagraphs to gain more than 100,000 Instagram followers. It takes people about 10 seconds to form an impression of your brand, so let’s see how Patricia Manterola has been using Plotaverse to grab peoples’ attention

How Manterola’s Instagram following boomed thanks to Plotagraphs

Patricia Manterola gained worldwide recognition through her Mexican music group Garibaldi and her Instagram was a reflection of her fame. With more than 600,000 followers, the Latina superstar is no slouch when it comes to entertaining her fans, both on and off social media.

In honor of her new song, Manterola posted a series of sultry plotagraphs on her Instagram account. Mesmerizing more than 44,000 viewers, these looping images showcased gorgeous moving waves around a fashionably dressed Manterola. In the span of a single day, Manterola watched her followers surge from 600k to over 700,000.

“I love when success stories like this happen,” notes CEO and Plotaverse owner Sascha Scheider. “Content Marketing has grown into a $326 billion dollar industry. Imagine trying to stand out and grab attention when […] billions of individuals are posting videos every day. It is our mission to stay ahead of the curve in market and tech trends.”

Other celebs can’t resist plotagraph

But it isn’t just Manterola who has been bolstering high follower numbers on her Instagram. Since socialite Paris Hilton started posting Plotagraphs almost every day, her numbers have skyrocketed from 80,000 to 11 million. The star has continued this trend with her new fragrance release “Electrify.” After all, up to 90% of customers that are engaged with a brand will buy more frequently than customers who aren’t engaged. It just goes to show that a little sparkle can go a long way.

Ariana Grande also hypnotized fans while promoting her recent interview with Elle Magazine. The starlet tossed her hair in the cover and used the Plotaverse app to give her hair a surreal spin on her Instagram page. While the original photo by Alexi Lubomirski was absolutely beautiful, the plotagraph was the perfect touch to whoo millions of fans online.

How Plotagraphs Are Changing the Face of Instagram

Even surrealist makeup artist Mimi Choi got a shout-out on the Joe Rogan podcast for her creative use of the Plotaverse app. Her Halloween-inspired makeup tripped out thousands of fans on her Instagram page. She was able to achieve such a successful plotagraph thanks to her patterned design. This is because plotographs work best when they have a recurring image or pattern to mimic. The end result is a perfectly repeated loop sure to confuse and entertain any follower you have.

Is the plotagraph the next “it” thing? Such cool innovations have sparked interest for celebrities but there are several industries that can benefit from such moving images. It’s estimated that up to 50% of homes don’t sell the first time they are listed. Could plotagraph be used for more than just celebrity Instagrams? You’ll have to download it yourself to find out.

cariPRO™ ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH

GIVEAWAY: Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush: Oral Care for Less

Hello, fellow weekenders. Are you looking to switch to an electric toothbrush or maybe in the market for a replacement? Have we got a great electric toothbrush for you! One that will make you smile brilliantly. The best part, it’s half the price of other electric toothbrushes with the same quality and better features. Say hello to the must-have in oral care, the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush, created by Founder & President Betty Shah, a 30-yr dental professional. And guess what, one lucky ready will win this amazing ultrasonic electric toothbrush.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

The Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush promises a healthier mouth, improved gum care, whiter teeth, and a 60-day money-back guarantee. There are so many things we love about this electric toothbrush. What are our favorites? The smart timer that lets you know when you move to the other sections of your mouth, and the 5 brush modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive). Most electric toothbrushes, especially those on a lower price point, do not offer this many modes.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

Why do we love the multiple modes? We love it because we can change modes while we’re brushing. This proved essential because we have a loose tooth that’s not quite ready to be extracted yet; the clean and white modes were both too strong for it so we switched to the sensitive mode for the quadrant of our mouth where our loose tooth was. It must be noted that switching modes restart the smart timer process, so you’ll have to shut it off manually. That, of course, can be done with one push of a button.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

You’ll also love its power. As heavy tea drinkers, we appreciate the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush’s 40,000 vibrations/minute dynamic cleaning action. It’s just what we need to remove tea stains from our teeth. Other standout features include a 30-day battery life (on a full charge), an ergonomic slim design with a graphite gray soft-touch grip, a waterproof design that is safe for shower or bath and a tongue scraper; the latter is a feature we haven’t seen on an electric toothbrush.

The Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush is available in three packages. The Individual Package, $119.00, which includes 1 cariPRO Ultrasonic toothbrush, 2 premium replacement heads with tongue scraper & DuPont bristles, and 1 wireless charging dock.

Solo Travelers Rejoice: Adventurely Is The App You’ve Been Waiting For

Travel enthusiast Mita Carriman felt something was missing from her solo adventures. She found visiting new cities on her own empowering but that it could get rather lonely at times. Instead of continually wishing that she had someone to join her on her travels, she did something about it. Carriman created an app called Adventurely to connect people traveling alone for leisure or work.

Adventurely App

With Adventurely, solo travel is getting a makeover. About 26 million trips are made on public transportation every day. From a morning commute to globetrotting, getting from here to there depends highly upon public transportation. When you’re traveling alone, public transportation can be especially intimidating. You’re in an unfamiliar place and may not speak the local language. By allowing people to find other solo travelers, Adventurely eliminates this pressure.

All you need is to download the Adventurely app and your troubles, including navigating foreign public transportation, are solved. Once you log onto the app, you can browse and add activities into your Adventurely itinerary. Just match with users interested in the same activities, and chat with them in the app to make plans together. You can also customize your settings to determine how long you want to be matched with activity partners for the activities so that you’re not getting notifications long after you needed a travel partner.

While the function of the travel app is similar to the various dating apps that work by matching users with one another, Adventurely gives individuals a way to meet travel buddies with no strings attached. Carriman, who is the official CEO and founder of Adventurely, tried to use Tinder when she would travel to find fellow adventurers interested in exploring an area together. However, she soon found out that the guys on Tinder were interested in activities other than sightseeing. Although 42% of travelers say that they feel more romantic on vacation, romance is not what Carriman wanted on her solo travels. She simply wanted someone to share the experience with. Other platforms meant to connect people, such as Meetup.com, weren’t helpful to Carriman either; the pre-set Meetups didn’t match her schedule.

Adventurely App

After finding out that three-fourths of all women in the United States travel alone, Carriman knew that an app to connect solo travelers would reach a massive and underserved market.

She initially released a beta of Adventurely in New York City in 2016 and it grew to 3,500 users. Whether they were traveling the 2.2 million miles of paved roads in the United States or jetting off to different cities, travelers were loving Adventurely. However, the app didn’t make it past the original beta version. Carriman spent a 1 1/2 years traveling around Europe and Latin America full-time; she found herself wishing that Adventurely existed again.

Adventurely App

She was thus inspired to relaunch Adventurely. Currently, the app is one of few — and possibly the only — Venture-backed startups specifically for solo travelers. In its new release, Adventurely has added Mexico City, Yucatan Mexico, and Bali, Indonesia to the list of areas travelers can use it. The company plans to add more cities with bucket-list attractions soon, as well as new group outing and community features.

If you would like to start connecting with fellow solo travelers, visit www.getadventurely.com and sign up for an account. Before you know it, you’ll be meeting up with other solo travelers and digital nomads around the globe and your lonely adventures will be over.

From window tints to flat-screen televisions, nearly everything in an average home can now be imbued with technology that responds to your voice or touch; BeBop Sensors knows this very well. This advanced technology transforms the most mundane materials into objects that respond to the user’s desires almost automatically.

The latest industry to go smart is one that everyone utilizes every day: the textile industry. Internationally, more than 14.3 million tons of American textiles are donated to help clothe people in need. Yet, now, something as seemingly commonplace as textiles are increasingly turning into pieces of advanced wearable technology.

BeBop Sensors Offers Latest In Smart Technology With Wireless Gloves

Smart fabrics have the ability to comprehend a variety of physical factors including motion, force, weight, and location.

They’re a step up from popular wearable tech — like Apple watches — that track data such as your heart rate and the number of steps you take per day. Smart technology like this has already been lauded as a way to better prevent conditions like heart disease, which is the number one cause of death in the United States. With smart fabrics, you don’t even have to think about putting on a watch every day; the potentially life-saving sensors are embedded right into the fabric of the clothes.

BeBop Sensors Offers Latest In Smart Technology With Wireless Gloves

BeBop Sensors is a leader in the world of smart fabric sensor technology. The innovative company has already shipped over two million wearable smart fabric sensors. Last year, BeBop Sensors launched the Forte Wireless Gloves. These gloves incorporate haptics and highly-accurate rapid sensing to be used in a variety of applications. These applications include virtual reality, design, gaming, and more.

The flexible sensors embedded in the fabric design allow the Forte gloves to track more of the wearer’s hands than other virtual reality gloves on the market. With more tracking comes more accuracy, making the gloves a useful tool for more than simple gaming. Architects have even been using the gloves to assemble VR models of their buildings. This gives architects a much better idea of how their designs will look when constructed in real life.

BeBop Sensors Offers Latest In Smart Technology With Wireless Gloves

BeBop Sensor’s unique product has already been collecting accolades. TIME Magazine awarded the Forte Wireless Gloves with the Best Inventions 2018 Award. According to TIME, the gloves are a game-changer for creative professionals everywhere because they imbue users with digital hands. The ability to grab and manipulate digital objects as if they were actually real is unlike any other technology on the market, making the gloves worthy of the award.

Founder and CEO of BeBop Sensors Keith McMillen said that the company was honored to receive the award. McMillen recognizes the importance of helping the user blend with a VR environment so accurately that they can feel the texture of different digital surfaces. Whether you’re looking to utilize the gloves to create incredibly accurate designs or you want to have a gaming experience like no other, this smart fabric can help you get there.

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

Do Self-Care Differently: Affordable Vibrators From A Breakout Company

The past few years have seen a strong emphasis on the importance of self-care for your overall wellbeing. Many ladies, in particular, have adopted mantras of taking care of themselves before being able to take care of others and saying no when people expect them to be superwoman. While the stereotypical image of self-care is face masks for your skin, delicious food for your body, and plenty of me-time for your mind, there is another sector of wellness self-care can cover: sexual pleasure.

The sex toy industry has been blossoming in the same years that self-care has come into focus. There are plenty of companies with high-end luxury devices promising consumers endless pleasure on their own or with a partner. These promises, however, often come with a high price tag.

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

That’s where PlusOne from Clio comes into the picture. PlusOne is the self-proclaimed first line of sexual wellness devices that are high-quality, affordable, and available for purchase at major retailers across the United States. Clio, a small company that started out making products for grooming and nail care, wants the world of sexual wellness to be accessible to everyone. Women and men at any income level can bring a PlusOne product into their bedroom, but what exactly do these devices look like and how do they really tie into self-care?

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

What do PlusOne products give you?

The four core products from PlusOne are a vibrating bullet, a personal massager, a vibrating ring, and a dual vibrating massager. The vibrating bullet has already made waves in the industry and onto quite a few listicles because of its ease and price. At just $10, the vibrating bullet is a great introductory vibrator for anyone who hasn’t used or bought one before. It’s extremely quiet and very compact at just three inches long, but it is just as effective as its larger counterparts on the market.

The PlusOne vibrating ring is made for men to use or a man and his partner to use together in the bedroom for ultimate pleasure. When the CDC recommends 30 minutes of aerobic exercise for five days of the week, we’re much too quick to think of pain rather than pleasure, but this device can give you and your partner a fun workout for up to two hours. Also offering up to two hours of activity on a single charge, the PlusOne Dual Vibrating Massager is in the rabbit design that many sexual wellness devices use. This design allows for ultimate versatility while satisfying almost any desire on your own.

The PlusOne Personal Massager is a small vibrating wand and may not look as advanced as the dual massager or the ring, but its simple design is effective. No matter where you want to work out a kink in your body, this powerful massager is sure to activate the two to four million sweat glands in the average person’s body. Its multiuse design also makes it perfect for use with a partner, if that’s where your pleasure takes you.

All of their products have 10 different vibration settings and are waterproof, allowing you to enjoy your bubble bath all in the name of self-care. The products are all easy to clean and ultra-hygienic. While common plastics such as polyethylene — which fills our world at an annual global production of about 80 million tons — include small bits of petroleum, PlusOne products are made of smooth, body-safe silicone. With an incredibly soft exterior, you can rest assured that your body is safe while you get your pleasure.

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

How do you buy PlusOne devices?

If this is a form of self-care you can happily get into, you’re in luck. Clio started selling their adult products in about 4,300 Walmart stores across the country in October of last year. The only states in which you won’t find them on Walmart shelves are Virginia and Alabama, which have laws restricting the sale of sexual wellness devices.

Prior to PlusOne, Walmart already sold vibrators from Trojan, Durex, and Lifestyles. However, PlusOne products have a much more high-end design and the features mentioned above. These products represent a bigger dive into the world of sex toys for the nation’s largest retailer, which is planning to add four more PlusOne products to its inventory this August.

The move to shelves of popular retailers is a big one for vibrators. They started in mail-order catalogs about 45 years ago and have more recently had a comfortable home online. However, buying any products in person has become preferable for many consumers, as nearly 50% of Internet users in the U.S. said they were avoiding online activities due to privacy and security concerns in 2018. Now, the Internet-wary can find sex toys in small sex shops as well as big-box stores.

Major retailer Target has also been selling PlusOne products since this past spring. For a store famous for roping consumers into buying many more items than they intended to when they walked through the doors, adding affordable and high-quality vibrators makes sense. As over 50% of consumers say they will make additional purchases from a brand that uses premium retail packaging, PlusOne is certainly able to rope in wandering Target customers with its eye-catching multicolor package design. For those not afraid of purchasing goods on the Internet, PlusOne devices are also available on Amazon in the same bold packaging.

With all of these buying options and enticing features, you just may need to take a little time for yourself with a PlusOne product. Whether it’s your first vibrator or an addition to your current collection, you’re sure to love its easy aesthetic and powerful punch. After all, it’s self-care and you deserve to treat yourself.
