At present, Hi Karl works only for a handful of cities in the United States of America. Hopefully, the developers include more places to its list. The chatbot will inquire about when you would like to go out. Before the chatbot starts suggesting places, it will ask you to share your location. If you provide a location that is out of its jurisdiction, it will ask you to add your city to the list of early adopters.
If you are within one of the cities, then the chatbot is ready to help you out. For starters, the chatbot will give you a list of concerts that are happening in and around your location. For example, if you tell the chatbot that you are living in New York, it will give you information about concerts. You get all the necessary details for the concert such as address, date and time.
If you like what you see, then you can select any one of those concerts. The chatbot will redirect you to a different page with further details. The chatbot will also show a Spotify playlist, based on the artist that is performing at the concert. The concerts are of various genres such as jazz, metal, country, soul, hip-hop, and house to name a few.
You can also ask the chatbot to find more concerts if you are not happy with its suggestions. If you are looking for places that you want to take your date or visit at night, then the chatbot can help you out. The chatbot will ask you to share your location on Facebook Messenger before it starts to recommend places.
Once the chatbot has your location, it will start suggesting places that are in and around your location. You don’t have to visit places that the chatbot suggests the first time. You can ask the chatbot to suggest new and different places.
The developers of the Hi Karl want the chatbot to be as friendly as possible. As a result of this train of thought, the developers made the chatbot funny and trendy. When you ask the chatbot to perform a task, it will reply in a hilarious manner.
For example, if you are happy with the suggestions, then you can select ‘awesome.’ The chatbot will reply by saying “I’m the one, #djkhaled.” As you can see, the chatbot knows how to reply appropriately.
