Auto Responses in Mobile Messaging Research Study

Image of the Cathedral of Learning

Do you ever find yourself in a position where you are not able to respond to an incoming message? How would you feel about a bot responding on your behalf by automatically drafting an auto-response to signal unavailability?

We are looking for participants for a research study to try out a messaging agent on their phone for two weeks.

Participants need to:

  • Be 18 years or older
  • Own an Android device with Android 7+ (Nougat or greater)
  • Communicate frequently through SMS or messaging apps like WhatsApp, Signal, Facebook Messenger etc.


Participation in this study involves:

  • Installing and keep running an android application
  • Answering a questionnaire daily in the app
  • Taking an end-of-study survey and giving an interview


Participants would be compensated through a virtual MasterCard for their participation and all study related tasks and communications would be carried out remotely.
