Assisting People at Haptik Using Amazon Polly

Haptik is India’s first personal-assistant app. Users can use the app to plan travel, check in for flights, book taxis, and set reminders. And of all the different features, the most important and frequently used is the Reminders feature. People use Haptik to set wake-up calls, set up reminders to drink water, call people at different times, send greetings to others for different occasions, and much more. Through the reminders feature, users will receive notifications on the app along with a phone call at a requested time, relating the reminder message. In this post, we will cover how we use machine learning and text-to-speech (TTS) to set reminders for users – to call them at the given time to remind them of their tasks. We will cover how Amazon Polly helped us make personalized calls to our users and helped us scale our reminders feature to millions of users.
