A former Amazon engineer who worked on Alexa has created a new app just for translating cat meows.

Javier Sanchez is a group program manager at a company called Akvelon.


The app works by analyzing cat meows and breaking them down into nine intents.

The app is still under development.

However, Sanchez says he hopes this will not only be fun for cat owners, but provide some better understanding during this time when more people are stuck at home and isolated with their pets.
