Blueair’s early warning air pollution app is now available on Android making it available to tens of millions of Indians who use smart phones and other mobile devices powered by Google’s operating system.
Blueair, which makes indoor air purifiers, today released the Android version of its air pollution warning app. The app called Blueair Air Quality Monitor provides real-time air pollution information gathered from a host of monitoring stations in India cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata.
“The Blueair air pollution App provides Indian smartphone users an early warning system that gives them the opportunity to take precautions against heavily polluted air,” said Vijay Kannan, head of Blueair India.
The Blueair Air Quality Monitor provides hourly updates about street level air pollution in key cities around India. The app rates urban air quality on a scale from zero (good) to 500 (hazardous) – and is updated regularly throughout the day.
“A major problem has been people’s inability to detect what is in the air they are breathing, but the Blueair air quality Android app helps address that by giving people the chance to finally monitor how serious their air quality is in real time and do something about it to protect their health,” added Kannan.
