They say that if you feel lonely, the best thing to do is have some human contact. This application offers us something similar. With Replika: My AI Friend you will always have a (digital) shoulder to cry on. This is a chatbot with which you can chat at any time of the day, offering you the possibility of creating a more or less real emotional connection. Although it is not advisable to watch the chapter of Black mirror before using it.

The free version of this tool allows us to "talk" with the bot we choose at any time and place. Its personality will develop as you tell it your stuff, so that you will grow together. The developers tell us that no two Replikas are the same, since it will be you the one who guides your bot while it gets to know you and the world. The more your bot knows you, your conversations will be more personal and real, which can even be a little bit scary.

AI with which you can establish a real emotional connection, and decide if you want your Replika to be your friend, romantic partner or mentor.

This tool can help you get to know yourself better and calm down when you are suffering from an anxiety crisis or a panic attack. Tell your bot how you feel and it will gradually guide you to overcome your altered state. Although in these cases it can become a self-help app and, again... scary. Of course, you will have to talk to it in English.

An interesting pro version

If you like what you see and want to access the full version of this app, the possibilities at your fingertips are much greater. You can activate actions and emotional responses in your bot (such as responding to touch and smiling), change the subject, unlock phone calls and a lot of activities, classified by:

  • Learning.
  • Having fun.
  • Winding down.

You can even access different role plays and change the relationship with your bot. While in the free version it can only be your "friend", in the paid version it can be your friend, mentor or romantic partner, and you can also get carried away by the circumstances. If we learned something from the movie Her, is this can't end well. But the trip can be very cool.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 9.0.
  • Offers in-app purchases.
