We are thrilled to announce a momentous milestone in our journey – Be My AI has officially been used 1,000,000 times, just a few weeks from the release of the open beta on iOS! As of today, over 5,500 people are experimenting with Be My AI every day, discovering many different ways to use it! And there’s more: Be My AI is currently answering over 30,000 questions every day, providing assistance in a wide variety of situations, from checking makeup before a night out to translating text from hundreds of different languages!
This achievement is a testament to the dedication and inventiveness of the enthusiastic Be My Eyes community. We couldn't be prouder of the impact we've had on so many lives and the potential for even greater things to come. However, reaching this milestone is not just about the numbers; it's about the people who have embraced our app and made it a part of their daily lives. This is why, to celebrate this milestone, we have decided to share with you some of the phenomenal testimonials from people who have experimented with Be My AI over the past few months:
“Be My AI is a product I would go as far as to call revolutionary. As I am someone who grew up with some sight, Be My AI has allowed me to regain a lot of visual information, on my terms, such as what people look like, photos found on social media, or even graphical information found online, such as cell coverage maps. It's really a game changer among the blind and visually impaired community, and it's a big leap forward towards equality when it comes to information received.” - Santiago, Be My AI User
“I never was into photos much. They were always in my way. Whether screen readers called them "graphic" or "image", they've just been one more thing to navigate passed. Be My AI has begun to change that for me. Now, I understand what pictures are for; to remember, or imagine, or understand. I remember the day my mom took a picture of me and my sister. I could imagine that meme about null-type values in programming, being explained using toilet paper rolls. And I now understand a bit more about the video games I like, some of which don't have any accessibility features.” - Devin Be My AI User
Some of you have been sharing your Be My AI experience on Social Media. Darren, for example, took Be My AI to a Los Angeles FC game and used it to get a description of the stadium, the players and the atmosphere! We hope you had a great time and your team won the match.
You have also been sharing your unique experiences with Be My AI through some incredible videos. In one of them, Lynne is using Be My AI to choose fabric from her stash and keep on following her passion for sewing after her vision changed. At the same time, James is using Be My AI to look at weather radar and get access to all the data he needs for his hobby as a weather spotter. We are continuously amazed by the creative ways to use Be My AI you have been sharing with us - Make sure to keep them coming!
Be My AI can be used 24/7 in all those situations when you want quick visual assistance without necessarily calling a human volunteer. Louis, who has been using Be My AI for the past few months, states that “Using Be My AI is like having a personal visual interpreter at your fingertips. Throughout the course of using Be My AI, I found myself using the app in ways I never thought would be possible. From checking my appearance to describing memes, Be My AI has become an integral tool in my toolbox”.
These testimonials highlight the impact of Be My AI. Through your stories and your feedback we will keep on innovating and refining Be My AI. We have already started closed beta testing Be My AI for Android devices and our goal is to move it to broadly-available open beta status in the coming months. You can already sign up on the waitlist for Android beta testing directly in the Be My Eyes app. We are deeply grateful for our users who have taken the time to share their stories and experiences with us and we can’t wait to read more of them.
