ADVISE WHEN Seeing AI app will be available on Android phones. Help near blind folks know if they must buy a new Apple iPhone? Or wait?
Aged near blind must have access to this terrific app. Must they buy an iPhone and scrap their Android device only to find out next day that Seeing AI is now available for Android devices. PLEASE - just let us know WHEN so that we can make intelligent decisions. Surely Microsoft can do better than "We're working on it". Thanks MUCH.

I am legally blind I found out about this app through my occupational therapist today only to find it isn't available on android only on iOS Apple rather
pathetic isn't it also a touch disimatory making people with disabilities buy expensive Apple phones I just remembered money is more important than people I don't accept excuses or reasons only results your loss apples iOS gain
We are working for blinds belongs to deprived families we also running schools for blinds. Seein AI is look a good opportunity for blinds. When launchit please update me we need it in bulk.
Microsoft’s admin points users to the accessibility blog, know where is seeing ai and android mentioned. Admin, why is android being ignored? Is the team still under the impression android is not accessible/useable compared to an iPhone? Note: your blog does not address seeing ai’s glaring omission of android. In a nut shell, apple has grown stagnate, overpriced hardware, pixel3 and other android OEMs cost less to buy with features not found in an iPhone. Last, its getting to cost for some blind user to afford apple’s over priced phone’s so they turn to android knowing their going to miss out on seeing AI. So, what is Microsoft doing other than listening to a select users who have barely ever touch an android device?

PLEASE make this available for Android users! Samsung Note 5 user here and this app was suggested for me by my occupational therapist, but now I find out it's only available for Iphone? I am newly low vision. I cannot just ditch my phone for an Iphone just for this app. UGH!
Been waiting for this app for a long time buy a pixel 3. I have no plans to go back to an iPhone, please port app.
Is Seeing AI on Microsoft's roadmap for the Android platform?
