Calgary (660 NEWS) – A new voice-activated app is now available for seniors coping with social and physical isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Annabot”, or “Anna”, is a one-touch voice messaging app offering personalized conversations, learning tools, and can also connect the user with appropriate health care professionals.

The app had been tested at Calgary’s Kerby Centre last year but with the current COVID-19 precautions, its release was pushed forward.

“Anna” is available for free in the Apple App Store.
