In-Traffic Reply app to come pre-installed in Samsung smartphones in Netherlands

31 July 2017 4

Using a smartphone while driving is one of the major reasons behind road accidents. According to a recent survey done by PanelWizard, nearly one-third or 33% of the road users in the Netherlands have used their phones behind the wheel. One of the reasons behind the use of smartphones while driving is the social pressure to reply to messages and answer calls immediately.

To counter the problem, Samsung Netherlands had unveiled a new app called In-Traffic Reply a few months back. The app was initially made available to users in Beta and was later released on the Google Play Store. Now, Samsung has announced that the new app will come pre-installed on all new Samsung devices in Netherlands.

The In-Traffic reply app detects when a user is in a car or riding a bicycle and automatically replies to incoming messages and calls with responses like “I’m sitting in traffic, so I can not answer at this time.” The app will work with popular messaging services like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, along with phone calls and SMS text messages. The latest Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy J, and Galaxy A series will also be pre-installed with the app.

The good thing about this app and this decision is that Samsung has come out with this decision psuo motu. No government interference was needed. This is good sign on the part of Samsung.

Answering to calls is understandable for personal or professional reason. But writing back on social sites, and that too immediately, is hard to digest.
