Each cat has their own unique vocabulary that they use to communicate with their owners consistently when in the same context. For example, a cat can have their own distinct meow for “food” or for “let me out.” This is not necessarily a cat language, as cats do not share the same meows to communicate the same things with each other, but we can use Machine Learning to recognise an individual cat’s meows and translate that into a human readable language. MeowTalk gives your cat a voice!

Using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to decode cat communications, MeowTalk instantaneously interprets cat talk into one of eleven general cat intents; the intents represent cat moods and states of mind and are as follows:

- Happy/Content
- Defense
- Angry
- Attack
- Mother Call
- Mating Call
- In Pain
- Resting
- Hunting
- Warning
- Give Me Attention

The free app version includes access to the translation mode with three basic meow intents. If you use the free version and your cat's meow does not belong to one of the free intents, it will be blurred. MeowTalk Premium subscription allows you to access all meow intents and translations.

MeowTalk Premium also allows you to train the app to learn your cat’s unique vocabulary, use Auto-translate mode, keep track of your cat’s meow translation history, and store the precious audio recordings of the meows on your device.

Each cat also has a unique vocabulary of meows. With a Premium subscription, you can train the MeowTalk app to learn your cat’s unique vocabulary of meows by telling the app what each meow means when your cat makes it. To train the app to learn a specific meow, pick a context where you know with certainty what your cat is trying to say (e.g. at feeding time the cat is saying “food”, at the door the cat is saying “let me out”). Use the app to translate those meows. You will get one of the 11 general intents as a translation - select “No, Change it”, and then provide the correct translation. Repeat this 5 to 10 times and wait up to 24 hours for the app to update and learn your cat’s vocabulary.

MeowTalk Premium includes an ability to turn your old phone into a smart speaker for cats when you run MeowTalk on it in MeowRoom mode. MeowRoom continuous cat listening can be activated in a MeowTalk app installed on an older or spare smartphone plugged into the wall outlet, so this smart cat speaker always listens for and translates cat meows. Any primary phone logged in with the same MeowTalk account will also get a notification of the meow translation captured by MeowRoom, which enables users to enjoy cat meow moments even when they are not home.

Love this

So I ᖇᗴᗩᒪᒪƴ like this app. Totally what I wanted for my three legged cute adorable cat. Love love love love LOVE! But the one thing is...whenever I try to 'sign up' and i click 'password' nothing shows. Just the keyboard without any keys. It's weird. ᔕᗝ I just stopped trying because I wanted to see what my cat was meowing to me. I woukd recomend this app if you have chatty cats like me. But also, I'm talking to the creators here, make one for dogs! Seriously. My friend has a cute dog and my grandparents have TWO cute dogs. So I was like "ok I'll see if there is one like this for dogs." Everything that showed up wasbeither for training dogs, dog emoji thingies, and human to dog. I was like then "no app store. I don't want human to dog. I want dog to HUMAN" So yeah creators. Make a WoofTalk. Please?

Just a heads up that this app is completely USELESS if you don’t pay for premium. What’s the point of having a cat translator app that you have to pay for just to see if your cat says anything about you?? It’s completely useless if you don’t buy the premium in your complete scam. Even when you buy it it’s not even half worth it. If you don’t pay for it all the translations are blurred which is completely useless whatsoever to the purpose of the app! There’s also performance issues which is why I’m giving it one star also the fact that it’s useless if you don’t buy the premium. Like come on, apps are THIS desperate for money that they will charge you just to see what your cat is saying. I may change my rating to five stars in that I say may.. IF you take away the premium for buying the translating. Like it’s so useless without it. There’s no point of getting this app if you have to pay for the stupid translator. I honestly expected more for this app and sad to see that it’s pretty much a scam. Better take away the paying for translator because there’s a lot of review saying that you should. Other than that I like this app but I’m begging you take away the translator paying!

Definitely should stay in Beta - DISAPPOINTED

I cannot express how excited I was to hear about this app. More than one friend forwarded an article to me about this new technology. I immediately downloaded it and the first time I used the app, it worked, sort of. I created separate profiles for both of my cats. I recorded meows for one of my cats. However, I was disappointed that those sounds were not captured in the history at all. I was more than willing to pay for the premium version in order to store the recordings, but the interface of the app is so skimpy that there is no help section or FAQ section or even a way to upgrade to they are premium version. It didn’t matter because the very next time and there after I have received an error message that isn’t even grammatically correct. It says “Something goes wrong. Check your connection.” I have tried reinstalling the app and I’ve also tried creating another account and nothing has worked. It’s disappointing that this app has garnered so much buzz but simply does not work. I have a perfectly brand new iPhone and no other app has any problem with my connection. Not ready for primetime. Don’t waste yours in frustration.
