Offline Mode: When you have NO Internet Connection


  1. This only works in solo mode: we need an internet connection in order to collect other people's audio & transcripts. You won't be able to host a group conversation.

  2. There will be a slightly depreciated accuracy: Ava needs an internet connection to use our smart speech recognition technology. 

  3. This function is only available on certain iOS and Android devices: for iPhone users, offline mode only works on devices with iOS 13 or higher. You can find unsupported devices at the bottom of this page.

  4. Offline mode works only for your default language, you cannot caption or translate in other languages.

  5. This is not available for Ava Web or Ava Desktop

How to enable Offline Mode

🤖 For Android and 🍎 Apple devices (only available on iOS 13 and above) :

1. Put your phone in ✈ airplane mode,

2.Open a conversation as you normally would
