The truth is that there is no shortage of alternatives to WhatsApp on the market, but the developers are daring, and present new proposals every so often. Now we know Hiboo, the WhatsApp that allows us to see what they write to us before sending it An original concept, but we don't know if it's what users demand.
The premise is simple: interlocutors receive our messages letter by letter as we write them, without waiting for us to press the send button Send. The idea is to streamline conversations and bring them closer to oral communication, since we can prepare a response before receiving the final message, or even interrupt its writing.
The truth is that there were apps like Hiboo before that allowed us to see what they wrote to us before sending it, but were unsuccessful WhatsApp simply It tells us if they are writing to us, but the text of the message does not arrive until the sender decides to send it.
The best thing to get an idea of how Hiboo works is to keep an eye on it, so here's this animation that shows how it works a conversation:
Hiboo, a simple WhatsApp clone?
The truth is that Hiboo doesn't stand out in anything other than allowing us to see what they write to us before sending it, so it will have a hard time competing with WhatsApp. In addition, the way it works may lead to misunderstandings For example, we can write a confusing sentence, the beginning of which implies a very different meaning at the end. In these cases, this can be a problem.
In addition, many users write phrases and then modify them after thinking better of it, something that is possible with WhatsApp, but that Hiboo would make unfeasible. So you see that this system has advantages, but also drawbacks.
Hiboo will launch on iOS on January 30th, but it doesn't have an Android release date, so you'll need an iPhone for the moment. In any case, we leave you the link to the websites of its creators at the end of the article, in case you want to participate in the beta of the app.
What do you think of Hiboo, the WhatsApp that allows us to see what they write to us before sending it? Do you think it's a good idea, or do you see no point in this way of communicating?
