People wanting to learn about the air quality before going out now can do it through Envisoft mobile assistant at their disposal.

Besides displaying the air quality index (AQI) updated hourly and providing a graph of the AQI value movement of previous hours and previous days, Envisoft supplies health recommendations in accordance with the AQI value, selects monitoring stations in certain geographic areas, and ranks air quality according to the monitoring stations.

First trial experiences have shown that Envisoft is user-friendly, easy to download, install and upgrade.

Currently, users can install the Envisoft application by going to the App Store on iPhone or Play Store on Android phones and searching the keyword Envisoft. Or users can also scan a QR code to install the application.

Hoang Van Thuc, the department’s deputy director, said that Envisoft is a highly-integrated application with many functions such as publishing, monitoring, camera, among others, with a variety of customization options according to users' needs.

After being put into operation, Envisoft application will be the official information channel of the central environmental management agency, Thuc added.
