About Us

XAPP AI is a Conversational AI (CAI) startup that was spun out of the industry leading XAPPmedia brand in 2021.  

XAPPmedia was founded in 2012 and was first to market with interactive audio ads for mobile and smart speakers. The company developed Optimal Conversation™ Studio (OC Studio),  to enable the creation of Conversational AI apps at scale.

As the CAI market continued to develop and consumer’s expectations evolved, XAPP AI was formed as a separate entity to sell OC. This allowed for full focus and investment into building a SaaS platform that would enable customers and partners to implement cutting edge CAI experiences across all channels including webchat, website search, text, smart speaker and telephony.

XAPP AI was one of the first SaaS companies to achieve an AWS ML Competency in Applied AI, an achievement that has helped them continue to serve thousands of enterprise, public sector, and SMB clients with delightful consumer experiences at scale.
