Taking a closer look at the feature, the AI-powered software processes the text in SMS messages. After the processing, the software shows the SMS messages as “structured, actionable” and “easy-to-read cards”. After this, the software showcases these cards with the help of pre-designed templates to highlight important information. Gupshup clarified that the software does not send any SMS data outside while focusing on user privacy and data security. Some of the pre-designed templates include travel, courier, banking transactions, and entertainment or mobile recharge messages.
