Q: Is Wakie app free? Are wake up calls free?
A: Yes, Wakie is free a free app and we don't charge for the calls.
Q: Can others see my phone number?
A: Never. All connections are made through Wakie and are anonymous for both sides.
Q: What should I talk about?
A: Talk about the topic you set or, if you are joining the conversation, talk about topic chosen by your chat partner. Please try to keep the talk within the set topic, but be open to other chats if you both agree.
Q: How does Wakie alarm clock work?
A: Wakie is a free alarm clock. Set an alarm for 7:00 am and you’ll get a phone call from another Wakie member at 7:00 am. The calls last just few minutes. You will hear a warning 10 seconds before the end of the call. No awkward goodbyes, no long conversations — calls are quick and casual. You can also choose to wake someone up yourself, too!
Q: What happens if no one calls me?
A: If no wakies are available, our robot will call to wake you and wish you a happy day. Your alarm clock will work anyway.
Q: Can I become an alarm clock and wake other users or give advice?
A: Of course, that's the point! Simply press the "Launch conversation" button. We will send you a Push Notification when we find a sleepy or chat partner who needs to talk.
Q: How should I wake up the sleepy?
A: How would you like to be woken up? Some people talk gently, others sing or play music. Be creative! Just be gentle, polite, and don't forget to ask them questions. That's the best way to wake them up.
Q: Do I need an Internet connection to be woken up?
A: Yes, you will receive a call through Internet. We recommend 4G (LTE) or Wi-Fi, but 3G will also work.
Q: Can I snooze the alarm clock?
A: You can ignore the call, but you can't snooze the live person.
