Focusbot: Mute Notifications, Autoreply, Focus (Early Access)

World is full of interruptions and requests from other people who are begging for your attention. However, you may be unavailable to answer them or are focusing on tasks at hand such as working, studying, or driving.

Based on what you tell us about you, Focusbot will text back to a missed call and text messages. Focusbot will also mute app notifications.

✱ NOTICE: Autoreply function to be removed✱
After March 8th, Focusbot will no longer support the Autoreply function due to the change of Google’s service policy with the use of SMS and call log permission.

Thank you to all the users who used Autoreply and gave us feedback. Though Autoreply is going away, we will continue to experiment with new ways to help minimize interruptions and improve focus.
