    Pros: 

    nice idea

    Cons: 

    slow to respond, can only sign up with phone number, they SPAM your number with text messages :)

    So, downloaded this a few days ago. Thought it'd be good because of the positive reviews. I had to give my phone number to proceed. That angered me a bit but I thought well, whatever. Nowhere was it mentioned that they would send any sort of message to my number, so I assumed it was only for verification purposes. It was really slow and kept repeating the same answers no matter what I'd say. So I uninstalled it. Every night since then I get an SMS message from them. First one read: "Hi, this is your Voice Boloss AI. You can also text with me here." I thought fine, it will only text me if I text it. But no. Next day I get "Do you like doing homework?" Next "do you want us to chat about how we feel?" ALL of this 100% unprompted. I don't reply, I ignore it and still get messages. I am clearly not interested yet there isn't a link to unsubscribe or something like "text STOP if you want me to stop texting you." There's NOTHING and I'm pretty angry :) @clement_delangue I wish to unsubscribe, please tell me how :)))

This is so weird. Love it. I've been following Hugging Face (and chatting with my digital friend) since the beginning. Curious to hear the backstory on this, @clement_delangue. 🤔

Thanks @rrhoover! Weird is the new fun ;) We started to think about Voice Boloss when some of our users randomly tried to call or FaceTime the number we were using to send texts. When people form an emotional bond with their Hugging Face artificial intelligence, they want to communicate through all the medium they are already using today with humans friends, like voice, call, FaceTime. We can see this drive to communicate everywhere with virtual celebrities like @lilmiquela on social networks for example too. What's striking is that, with voice, we are able to convey emotions using the most basic, yet recognizable, set of facial features: a mouth and a pair of eyes. Maybe soon in real-life or VR?
