How to get the app

Wysa is an AI coach that the user converses with about different problems/issues – the AI coach uses “chat” mode with the user to discuss different strategies and options to manage these, and also suggests links within the app to find additional support around various topics e.g., managing pain, relationships, wellness, grief, stress and many more.

For the complete app description, go to the app website(external link), Google Play(external link), App Store(external link) or, for a more detailed review, see reviews below.


 Gives users access to instant support whenever this is needed (24/7), as long as the user has internet access.

✔ Access to crisis support (internationally) and to develop a safety plan instantly.

✔ Access to strategies/suggestions that are very relevant, evidenced-based, and walks the user through how to identify what is needed at the time, and suggestions with how to solve the issues.

The user needs to be able to access the internet to use the content/chat feature.

✘ The user only has access to a limited amount of content on the app – in order to access all content a “premium” subscription is required (this can be purchased on a monthly or annual basis).

✘ it is a shame so much more content can only be viewed with a “premium” subscription given the reason many users seek free online support is because they are unable to financially access this.

Date of review: March 2023
Platform: Apple
Version: 6.3.3
CommentsI would recommend this app to my clients – what is available free to the user to very relevant, evidenced-based, and walks the user through how to identify what is needed at the time, and suggestions with how to solve the issues (24/7).
Safety concerns: No – no identifying information is requested from the user with the free subscription. Not sure about the premium subscription, but I suspect that all information will be confidential with the psychologists that the user accesses for support.
New Zealand relevance: Yes
