”Two-way was difficult because of unnecessary back and forth miscommunicaton”

by CEO Takuro Yoshida

User feedback

1000 users tried one-way and two-ways. Here are what some had to say...

Two-ways caused a bit of confusion because the person who I was talking to at the store would say their own product names that ili didn't recognize causing issues.

- 40s Female (Taiwan)

Using a two-way device, most people I talked to would respond in ili using slangs or super long sentences. It took so long time to explain to avoid them. Hence why I preferred one-way. It was much easier to get a yes or no response after asking my questions. 

- 30s Male (US)

One-way is fun because it gives a human element in the persons response. Also, most of the phrases I used ili for only required yes or no responses. It's faster than anything I've used.

- 20s Female (Japan)

Which is faster, one-way or two-way?
